The Newest Force in the Fight Against SCN

This 2017 map shows the states where there is a high infestation of Soybean cyst nematode.

Soybean cyst nematode (SCN), the silent yield robber, continues to take big bites out of yield every year. While SCN-resistant varieties have been a common tool in managing SCN in the past, the varieties utilizing the PI88788 gene are no longer as effective as they used to be. Iowa State University experts recommend that you enhance the performance of your SCN-resistant varieties with a nematode protectant seed treatment. However, not all nematicides are fit for the role. Because SCN reproduces exponentially throughout the season, you need a seed treatment that deals lethal blows to SCN all season long.

Syngenta now offers Clariva® Elite Beans seed treatment, the only seed-applied nematicide on the market that provides season-long activity against SCN. Clariva Elite Beans is an engineered premix formulation of the proven Clariva® pn seed treatment nematicide and CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Beans seed treatment.

Advantages of Clariva Elite Beans

  • Offers the only season-long lethal SCN activity
    • Competitor seed treatments offer just early-season activity against SCN
  • Contains the unique RootingPower of Vibrance fungicide and the Cruiser® Vigor Effect for optimized root health and plant vigor
  • Delivers an attractive return on investment (ROI) with an average yield increase of 2.7 bu/A, according to Syngenta trials
    • In some fields, yield increases of more than 10 bu/A have been achieved

If left untreated, a single nematode can produce over 1 billion eggs in a season, infesting your fields for years to come. Think about your seed treatment as an investment in the future yield potential of your field. The convenience of Clariva Elite Beans combined with its unique season-long activity against SCN can help put you at ease from planting to harvest.
