With harvest coming up across the country, it’s hard not to look forward to seeing how well your full soybean management programs performed. While you look back at your herbicide programs, soybean variety choices and this season’s weather, one important aspect may be overlooked: seed treatments.

While most use a soybean seed treatment of some kind, all too often the importance of selecting the right seed treatment is overlooked. Although the color of different seed treatments may be the same, the performance isn’t. And with lower commodity prices, you may be looking at discount seed treatments as a potential opportunity to cut costs.

We will be doing a series on the importance of the right soybean seed treatment, and the differences between seed treatment choices available today. Over the coming weeks we will cover the following topics:

  • Generic seed treatments – the increasingly common generic soybean seed treatments and the risks that surround them.
  • Branded seed treatments – branded seed treatment options on the market such as Acceleron® Standard and Valent Intego® Suite.
  • CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Beans seed treatment – the market-leading insecticide/fungicide seed treatment from Syngenta and what it provides.
  • An overall look at the options growers have and what they need to consider as they make seed treatment decisions for the 2018 season.

This series will highlight the importance of investing in your seed treatment and focusing more on ROI than upfront costs. It will educate on the importance of your soybean seed treatment choice and how to best prepare for next year.
