Yarmouth, IA Grow More Experience Site Shows Vigor Above and Below Soil

Saltro-treated soybean trials at the Yarmouth, IA Grow More™ Experience Site

As you closely monitor and scout your soybeans for disease and pests through the season to make sure your crops are healthy, what’s happening out of sight beneath the soil can be just as important for maximizing yield potential. Establishing plenty of sturdy roots in the early growth stages helps soybeans absorb water and nutrients during the reproductive stages, better enabling soybeans to reach their full potential.

Some seed treatments for Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) protection can cause early-season stress, resulting in phytotoxic burns on the cotyledons, stunting and reduced root mass. While soybeans may appear to overcome stress side effects above ground, early-season root damage can last through the season.

With ever-earlier planting and ever-more erratic weather, your soybeans are under enough stress, and your SDS seed treatment choice shouldn’t cause more pressure. With stronger plant stands and quicker speed to canopy, Saltro® fungicide seed treatment delivers superior SDS protection without the stress to help your soybeans achieve their maximum yield potential.

At the Yarmouth, IA, Grow More™ Experience site, our seedcare trials offer a firsthand look at the above and below-ground impact of early-season stress on soybeans.

Even with heavy Japanese beetle foliar damage at the Yarmouth trials, the difference in foliage and root mass between the Saltro- and ILEVO-treated soybeans is clear.

Work with your local agronomist or Syngenta sales representative to upgrade your SDS protection for the 2021 season.
