Syngenta offers new Vibrance seed treatment fungicide to boost RootingPower
Syngenta announced federal Environmental Protection Agency registration of Vibrance seed treatment fungicide, the company's first fungicide developed specifically as a seed treatment. Featuring a new mode of action for the seed treatment market, Vibrance is now registered for use on cereals, soybeans and canola with additional crop registrations anticipated during the next several years. State registrations may still be pending. Please check with your state regulatory agency to determine registration status.
Sedaxane, the active ingredient in Vibrance and a member of the SDHI class of fungicides, creates an unmatched level of disease protection that results in stronger, more powerful roots. This RootingPower helps produce more even emergence, improve nutrient and moisture uptake, and develop stronger plants. As a result, crops are better able to withstand the stresses of the growing season to deliver more consistent yield performance.
Vibrance contributes to a healthier crop by starting at the roots. It provides best-in-class protection against devastating soilborne diseases like Rhizoctonia root rot, which can wreak havoc on crops if it's able to take over a field. In addition to damaging roots, this fungal pathogen attacks young seedlings, impairing their ability to absorb water and nutrients, which reduces emergence and stunts growth.
Vibrance delivers enhanced disease protection against Rhizoctonia root rot and other yield-robbing diseases like true loose smut in barley to protect roots and help ensure consistent yield performance. The active ingredient sedaxane complements other market-leading Syngenta seed treatments in cereals, soybeans and canola, and is applied at a low use rate.
Based on regional pest issues and other geography-related concerns, Vibrance will be marketed in cereal crops as follows:
CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals seed treatment insecticide/fungicide will be available for application on-farm or through commercial, on-site seed treater or seed company. This will replace the current CruiserMaxx Cereals seed treatment insecticide/fungicide formulation.
Vibrance Extreme seed treatment fungicide will replace the current Dividend Extreme seed treatment fungicide formulation and will be available for application by commercial, on-site seed treater or seed company across the United States.
In 2013, CruiserMaxx Beans insecticide/fungicide, an on-seed application of one or more separately registered products, and Vibrance fungicide seed treatment will be available to elevate the level of disease protection in soybeans. It will provide added seed protection against seed decay, seedling blight and damping-off caused by Rhizoctonia solani.
By continuing to invest in new technologies that improve disease protection and enhance RootingPower, Syngenta is helping growers achieve improved crop performance and maximum yield potential.
