Product Overview

Force® CS is a soil-applied corn insecticide that offers high-level control of corn rootworm and other early-season insects with the convenience of a liquid. It can be applied over the top of CRW-traited acres, on refuge acres, or on full-field conventional acres. Force CS is applied through the John Deere Central Insecticide System™ or the Raven application system. Available from authorized equipment dealers, these closed-package systems reduce product handling and exposure.

Matt BaileyA few years ago, we decided to move to a Force CS planter. Granular was no longer an option for us. I really thought Force was the best stuff on the market, so we invested in the system. I like the idea that you can throw a couple boxes in the planter and go. I definitely think that we save a lot of time at planting. You can fill the planter up with Force, and you’re set to run for the day. The liquid form is much easier than the granular.

Joe SchaeferForce CS seems to do a really good job with corn rootworm. The biggest thing is standability. We don’t have any root issues with it. It seems to work really well. The biggest preaching point with Force is that traits require those bugs to bite the roots to die, while Force protects the roots.
