The program presented is a general outline of AgriGuardian™ Nutritional Program for dry beans. Individual products, rates and application methods may vary based on soil and tissue test results and how crop is grown.

IgniteS2® was applied by Jack's Bean Company to all seed used by all companies participating in this comparison. IgniteS2® is marketed by AgriGuardian, and was supplied by AgriGuardian for use in this study.
