“The two-week residual saved us. We could’ve lost our entire grain crop. If we didn’t have Transform, we would’ve spent a lot more money.”

Christopher Sparks, owner, CJ Farms, Harlingen, Texas

“The sugarcane aphid had a severe impact on yields if it was left untreated. If it was sprayed with Transform, very little yield reduction was seen and the control was exceptional.”
Darren Biediger, independent crop consultant, STX Ag Management, Portland, Texas
“I went with Transform because I had talked to many reps and county agents … and Transform was giving the best result for your dollar … If applied properly and at the right time, one trip could get the job done.”
Dave Schubert, sorghum grower, Kingsville, Texas
“Transform is easy on beneficials and it’s got a 14-day residual that also allows the beneficials to build up. Then you can have the combination of the residual and the beneficials working on aphids to keep populations manageable.”
Caleb Fields, retailer and consultant, Sanders, Harlingen, Texas
