Prevent Early Breakdown With a Turbocharged Seed Treatment

Young soybeans starting strong.

As you continue to make soybean input decisions for 2019, it’s important to remember one of the most significant factors for success: protection against early-season insects and diseases.

Seedling diseases caused by Fusarium, Pythium or Rhizoctonia species have resulted in yield losses of more than 62 million bushels in the U.S.[1] And with commodity prices at roughly $9 per bushel, this equates to losses of more than $550 million. Soybeans in their critical early-growth stages need a proven level of protection from these diseases to prevent stand loss and damping-off.

To ensure your soybeans are protected at this vital stage of development, it’s important to understand what a turbocharged seed treatment can do for you. A proven seed treatment will help ward off early-season insect and disease threats, but the color of your seed treatment isn’t what matters – it’s the formulation that provides all of the benefits needed to start strong. That’s why it’s important to know what’s under the hood of your seed treatment.

Syngenta solution:

Tested under 16 different environments simulating real-world conditions, CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Beans seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products, proves to rise to the occasion. Its active and inert ingredients work together and bind to the seed to help soybeans establish a strong defense system against damaging insects and diseases in all environmental conditions.

Compared to generic blend seed treatments, CruiserMaxx Vibrance Beans doesn’t break down under pressure. Instead, it maintains momentum against early-season pests and environmental pressures to give your soybeans a fighting chance against pest threats.

Why should you settle for a poorly formulated seed treatment with outdated technology, when you can select a seed treatment with a consistent formulation that delivers reliable, proven performance? CruiserMaxx Vibrance Beans will give your soybeans the strongest start to the season when they are at their most vulnerable stage.
