Seed treatment applicators no longer have to worry about waste when it comes to mixing soybean inoculants. Verdesian Life Sciences introduces a revolutionary new technology, FlexConnect™, 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.
“FlexConnect will transform the way applicators are using inoculants,” said Jim Pullins, technical sales representative for Verdesian Life Sciences and a key part of the FlexConnect development team. “Seed treatment applicators have battled with wasting time mixing and appropriately handling cumbersome products, as well as cleaning contaminated mixing tanks. Due to the shelf-life and viability of inoculants, many applicators end up wasting inventory due to spoilage of mixed and unused product. All of those add up to wasted money and lost profit, but FlexConnect changes all that.”
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,” said Philipp.
FlexConnect is now available for the Verdesian soybean inoculant, Preside CL®.
