Soybean Insecticide Seed Treatments

Resonate 600 ST

When you apply fungicide & insecticide seed treatments to your seed you expect it to be there when the seed and seedling need it. Resonate™ 600 ST insecticide is driven by a new innovative formulation that reduces seed treatment dust off.  Developing a new formulation for an insecticide that reduces dust off and provides improved characteristics that enhance stewardship is very exciting from a chemistry and formulation perspective because it adds value for those who treat it as well as those who plant it.

  • New “patent pending” formulation technology
  • Reduced dust-off from seed treat application
  • Enhanced Custom Blend Stability & Compatibility
  • Consistent broad-spectrum performance & protection

Soybean Nematicide Seed Treatment

Few things are more devastating to soybean farmers than soybean cyst, root-knot and reniform nematodes.  These pests can not only put a significant dent a grower’s yield at harvest, they can wipe out entire crops eliminating profit entirely.  In fact, millions of bushels are lost to nematodes in soybeans every year.

Often misdiagnosed as drought, iron and other nutrient deficiency, chlorosis, herbicide injury, disease, fertility and soil type issues, nematode damage can be difficult to diagnose.  That’s why preventative action with a seed treatment can be so effective in the fight against nematodes of all species.

What alternatives exist for fighting nematodes in your soybeans?

BIOST Nematicide 100

BIOST® Nematicide seed treatment provides you with a flexible and proven “alternative” for enhanced nematode protection.  BIOST® Nematicide is a user-friendly formulation, non-living active ingredient in a very stable formulation that is compatible with many synthetic and biological seed treatments.  It is a seed-applied technology that kills nematodes in 24 to 48 hours.  BIOST® Nematicide is one of few choices for control of cyst nematode – the most devastating for loss in soybean.  It is also highly efficient in the control of root-knot and reniform nematodes.

BIOST® Nematicide is a prime example of a biological seed treatment that delivers performance and value when compared to other seed treatment nematicides available today.  As a seed treatment applied prior to planting, BIOST® Nematicide provides farmers proactive insurance against possible crop devastation by nematodes.

The BIOST® VPH formulation is focused on using only plant derived amino acids in a rate and ratio that is beneficial when applied to all crops.

Importance and Functions of Amino Acids

  • Glutamic Acid - Stimulates plant growth and increases resistance to adverse climate conditions. It's necessary in large quantities as a precurser of new and other amino acids.
  • Serine and Valine - Improves the resistance resistance mechanisms of plants to adverse situations.
  • Lysine and Arginine - Active and essential in the stimulation of Photosynthesis.
  • Aspartic Acid - Important for it's intervention in many metabolic processes.
  • Methionine - Increases yield and quality
  • Tryptophan - Precurser for the synthesis of auxins
