Syngenta AMS (aphid management system) showing excellent control in the field

Syngenta_AMS_ENG_RGBAfter reading the Baute Bug Blog , I was interested to see how the AMS system is holding up in the field in the first year.  In eastern Ontario and Quebec the visual control in the plots have been quite exciting. S22-A1 is the first AMS soybean in Canada and in plots the beans are clean of aphids and show minimal aphid stress as compared to non-AMS beside them in the plots. It is still only early August but we have seen plots of AMS with 2 – 5 aphids per plant (waiting to die), Cruisermaxx showing aphid levels of 100 -200 per plant and non-treated 700-800 aphids per plant as seen by Martin Lanoutte, TPS in the St-Jean sur Richelieu, Quebec area.  Great early results with a new management system that uses seed treatment, biological control and trait to manage this yield robbing pest.
