A superior seed treatment formulation reduces seed sticking issues. 

When planting season hits and the weather is just right, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is a hold-up related to issues from your seed treatment. It’s important to select a seed treatment that’s easy to apply and won’t cause problems that will lead to setbacks. It’s also vital for your seed treatment to provide reliable protection against early-season pests like soybean cyst nematode (SCN).

Clariva® Elite Beans seed treatment is the only nematicide seed treatment that delivers season-long, lethal activity against SCN. Beyond the performance it provides to growers, it will also reduce equipment clogging to improve the treating experience.

  1. No more sticking or equipment clogging: Clariva Elite Beans causes fewer seed-sticking issues. This helps prevent equipment clogging that might occur with competitive seed treatments or previous formulations. This also means you’ll have an easier time cleaning the equipment after treating and planting.
  2. Lower use rate: For season-long activity against SCN and early-season disease and insect protection, Clariva Elite Beans only requires 2.6 fl oz/140,000 seeds compared to Acceleron® Elite + NemastrikeTechnology, which can be up to 6.4 fl oz/140,000 seeds. This means you’ll need less product volume to produce better results, and it leaves room for add-ons.
  3. Flexibility: Compared to competitive seed treatments, Clariva Elite Beans offers better flexibility. You can confidently add inoculants and proprietary enhancements to your seed treater without worrying about overloading rates on the seed. With Clariva Elite Beans, you’ll have more enhancements to choose from, without worrying about use rates limiting your choices.

This easy-to-use seed treatment helps make treating seed more time- and cost-efficient. With this in mind, we encourage you to consider Clariva Elite Beans going into next season. For more information, talk to your local Syngenta sales representative or visit SyngentaUS.com/CEB.
