Bayer CropScience announces the AERIS Seed-Applied System. The system offers broad-spectrum protection from all major early season insects and nematodes in cotton.

Depending on local conditions, AERIS provides up to 28 days of thrips protection; up to 42 days of aphid protection; suppression of early season fleahoppers and plant bugs; and up to 28 days of nematode protection for farms with low to moderate populations.

For the 2007 season, growers can request AERIS through the major cottonseed companies or by contacting their local Bayer CropScience field representative.
