TWIN-ROW PLANTERS—Case IH Twin-Row planters allow producers to increase plant populations without having to make any new investments or major modifications to existing harvesting or spraying equipment. Instead, change your planter and everything else remains the same as it was with 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch rows. The concept involves staggering seed in two rows, eight inches apart. Therefore, a corn head set for 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch rows can harvest twin rows at the same time. For 2013, Case IH will offer the 825A3P, 4025A3PS, 1225A FF and 1625A FF models featuring twin-row setups.

Broad spectrum insect control now available
Row-crop producers have relied on COBALT insecticide for years to provide effective insect control. With the development of COBALT Advanced, producers now have a more powerful, low-odor tool that offers fast knockdown and residual control of a broader spectrum of insects.
COBALT Advanced delivers high performance control of a broad spectrum of insects in soybeans, corn, wheat and alfalfa. Insects controlled include aphids, beetles and spider mites in soybeans; corn rootworm beetles, cutworms and aphids in corn; aphids, beetles and grasshoppers in wheat; and weevils, aphids and leafhoppers in alfalfa.
"If you're spraying at the appropriate application rate, you can expect COBALT Advanced to provide quick knockdown of all of the primary pests in these crops," said Dr. Erin Hodgson, Extension entomologist at Iowa State University.
The two modes of action found in COBALT Advanced quickly knock down targeted insects, provide long-lasting residual control and help ensure effective resistance management. The new low-odor formulation benefits applicators working near urban centers.
The improved formulation of COBALT Advanced insecticide offers greater tank-mix compatibility with nutrients, adjuvants and other pesticides, including fungicides. A planned approach of mixing COBALT Advanced with an effective fungicide can help control both insects and diseases with a single application.
COBALT Advanced is formulated using a unique technology that helps ensure that both active ingredients are present in every droplet. This formulation assures that fields are receiving an equal distribution of both modes of action for increased insect control.
