Seed treatment applicators no longer have to worry about waste when it comes to mixing soybean inoculants. While at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, Verdesian Life Sciences showcased its FlexConnect technology — the first closed transfer system for soybean inoculants.
Combined with a mixing port, FlexConnect enables applicators to handle and mix inoculants of any volume straight from the packaging, without transferring to a separate tank. This saves applicators time and money by minimizing the waste normally associated with inoculant mixing.
Brad Philipp, field sales agronomist at Central Valley Ag in Hampton, Nebraska, served as a beta tester for FlexConnect.
“The time I’m saving with the FlexConnect system can be put forth to anything from going out and visiting with a grower, spending more time checking fields, doing other important tasks around the plant, as well as being able to see my family in the evenings,” Philipp said.
FlexConnect is now available for the Verdesian soybean inoculant, Preside CL.
