AMVAC Chemical Corporation Introduces XPEDIENT™ FC™
Liquid Corn Soil Insecticide Provides Secondary Pest Control

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (March 4, 2014) – AMVAC Chemical Corporation, a subsidiary of American Vanguard Corporation (NYSE:AVD), has introduced XPEDIENT FC corn soil insecticide to provide corn growers convenient and affordable secondary pest control. 

XPEDIENT FC protects corn from grubs, seed corn maggots, wireworms and other soil pests. This convenient and flexible liquid soil insecticide has shown outstanding mixing capabilities in fertilizer solutions. XPEDIENT FC is a true solution versus a suspension, which results in uniform applications and little to no separation in fertilizer.

“As the market leader in corn soil insecticides, we’re continually looking for products that will help growers,” said Eric Wintemute, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of American Vanguard Corporation. “We believe XPEDIENT FC provides growers with a convenient, flexible liquid corn soil insecticide. We know growers rely on YES™, our Yield Enhancement Solutions™, to help them get their corn crop off to a strong start. This product provides them another tool to maximize their return on this investment.”

XPEDIENT FC has a high concentration of active ingredient, which allows growers to use the minimum amount of product on the maximum number of acres. An economical option offered by the trusted source of AMVAC Chemical Corporation, XPEDIENT FC may be used with any liquid fertilizer or water source. This allows growers to reliably control secondary pests without having to change production practices.

XPEDIENT FC will be available from ag retailers for the 2014 growing season.
