For trashy fields,
apply in the seed furrow.
COUNTER can be applied
safely and directly in the seed
furrow where it won’t get
lost in the trash or be blown
away. At the same time,
COUNTER in-furrow or in
a band controls more corn
pests than any other insec
ticide. Plus, COUNTER acts
systemically, as well as on
contact, so it works through
the plant for total root and
early-season foliar protection,
