Leave the calculator at home. You'll be able to check a web page from Syngenta to calculate seed needs for 22 and 30 inch rows.

Syngenta has designed a new resource center online for sugarbeets, sunflowers and other crops.

The new pages house information specific to seeds, including approved Hilleshög brand varieties per sugarbeet growing region, available Syngenta sunflower hybrids, yield results and links to management tools and products that address challenges during the growing season. 

The Sugarbeet Planting Guide helps growers determine the amount of seed they need to plant to maximize yield potential on their acres. Growers simply select their desired seed spacing, and this unique planting guide calculates seed needs for 22-inch and 30-inch rows.

Perfectly spaced sugarbeets are primed for high yield potential.

"We know that growers are spending more time online, and we want to be sure that key seed information is available at their fingertips," says Tyler Ring, Syngenta product head for sunflower, sugarbeet and wheat seed.  "Syngenta works hard to understand the grower's needs, and with these new sites and planting tool, we hope to make an important part of their year a little easier."

The planting guide will soon be made mobile-friendly.
