How many ways can Poncho Beta seed-applied insecticide make a sugarbeet producer’s world sweeter? With the Sweeter World Sweepstakes, there are now three ways, says Bayer CropScience: (1) better stand counts and more recoverable sugar; (2) a chance to win a trip to the 2011 American Sugarbeet Growers Association (ASGA) annual meeting in Tucson, Ariz.; and (3) a chance to win an Apple iPad®.
Kerry Grossweiler, Bayer CropScience product manager for seed treatments, says, “Growers who use Poncho Beta for control of secondary pests and improved stand establishment have a good start to the growing season and the makings of a sweeter world. Now when they go online to learn more about Poncho Beta, they will not only learn more about the benefits of controlling secondary pests, but they can also enter to win one of five prizes that will sweeten their lives even more and help them learn more for their farming operations.”
The Sweeter World Sweepstakes will award one qualifying grower the grand prize – a trip for two to the 2011 ASGA meeting. Four first-place winners will receive a new Apple iPad. The grand prize trip package includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations for five nights, a spa or golf day and conference registration. The first-place prize iPads come WiFi enabled, so growers can access websites for weather, commodity prices and more out in the field.
“Attending the ASGA annual meeting is an opportunity for a grower to learn about the newest products, practices and industry issues,” adds Grossweiler. “Bayer CropScience is proud to offer a variety of learning experiences and tools to sugarbeet producers, in addition to innovations like Poncho Beta.”
Sugarbeet growers can enter the Sweeter World Sweepstakes online at www.ponchobeta.us/sweeterworld.com from August 2 through October 31. Winners will be selected and announced in November.
