Enhanced soybean disease protection

Apr 11, 2011

Dr. Palle Pedersen

For years, soybean growers have reported improvements in vigor and yields with an insecticide/fungicide seed treatment combinationHowever, in areas with heavy Pythium and Phytophthora pressure, an extra dose of mefanoxam has been needed for increased disease protection. 

For 2011, a seed treatment formulation with extra disease protection will be available in one convenient product, eliminating the need for mixing that extra dose. If you are a retailer in an area with heavy disease pressure, contact your local sales representative for more information on this convenient, enhanced formulation.
