Start the 2019 Season with a Winning Advantage Over Generic Blends

Visible dust-off of a generic blend vs. a Syngenta seed treatment.

A winning seed treatment can help get your soybean crop off to a stronger start and a higher-yielding finish. But do you know how else seed treatment performance is measured in comparison to generic blends?

Seed treatments may look the same on the outside, but on the inside they are a complex mix of active and inert ingredients. Generic blends aren’t engineered for high functionality – they’re simply assembled with existing old materials.

Poorly formulated generic blends can have issues like product separation and reduced stability, creating dust-off. This can cause the treatment to stick to the treater instead of your seed. Poor coverage on treated seeds can leave you in the dust – and leave dust on the ground – at the start of the season.

Poorly formulated generics can also create buildup in your planting equipment, reducing efficiency at a time in the season when every minute counts.

CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Beans seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products, contains unique polymers that bind active ingredients to the seed coat. This reduces dust-off and improves seed flow, which helps you focus on the momentum of planting.

Every batch of CruiserMaxx Vibrance Beans has undergone extensive testing in all planters and climates to ensure optimal planting and guarantee that you get the value you paid for.

By using a seed treatment like CruiserMaxx Vibrance Beans, you’re protecting your investment – in both time and money. Talk to your local Syngenta sales representative or visit SyngentaUS.com/CMVB to learn more.
