Put Your Soybean Seed Treatment to the Test
A soybean plant emerging
While we’re all ready to put 2020 behind us, last year’s weather could be a lasting threat to your soybean yield potential this season. Winter drought conditions may have set the stage for an increased yield impact from Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) this year.
Iowa State University Extension says yield loss from SCN is considerably worse in drought years, and reproduction may be greater under these conditions as well. To deal with drought and potentially increased SCN pressure, your soybeans need to have strong, healthy roots to help absorb moisture and nutrients and ultimately reach their full potential.
To protect your yield in 2021, you need a seed treatment you can trust to protect your soybeans early in the season and set the foundation for a strong harvest. Saltro® fungicide seed treatment delivers superior SCN and Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) protection without early-season stress. This means Saltro helps soybeans emerge quickly and uniformly, while also establishing a strong root mass under the soil. With field-tested nematode activity and upgraded SDS protection, Saltro can help set your soybeans up for success in 2021.
A Behind-the-Scenes Look at a Live Syngenta Seedcare Experiment
The Seedcare Institute™ began a live experiment this week comparing the growth of Saltro-treated soybeans to soybeans treated by ILEVO® seed treatment. This experiment will demonstrate the upgrade in performance Saltro offers and underscore how Saltro-treated soybeans emerge quickly, vigorously and without stress above or below the soil.

With early-season plant-health benefits, robust nematode activity and upgraded SDS protection, Saltro can help your soybeans achieve higher potential yield. On average, under SDS pressure, Saltro delivers a 4 bushel-per-acre yield advantage over ILEVO*.
