One option covers multiple forms of early-season protection: Trilex 6000

With seed selection just around the corner, growers must consider the value of obtaining early seed treatment protection.

In seasons past, growers may have experienced the positive aspects of a fungicide seed treatment, such as protection against fungi that can cause early season diseases like seed rot. Early-planted, high-moisture fields are the ideal set up for early disease, says X.B. Yang, plant pathologist at Purdue University.

To safeguard crops against early-season insects and diseases for the 2009 growing season, growers can choose protection from a single seed treatment system offered by Bayer CropScience: Trilex® 6000 Soybean System.

Trilex 6000 Soybean System combines the technologies of Trilex, Yield Shield™ and Allegiance® seed-applied fungicides; Celgard; Gaucho® seed-applied insecticide; and Pro-Ized Red Colorant in one seed treatment. Together, these products protect against detrimental insects and fungi, including overwintering bean leaf beetle, soybean aphids, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Pythium and early-season Phytophthora.

“The Trilex 6000 Soybean System helps simplify growers’ soybean input decisions by providing custom matched solutions in a single system,” says Louis Holloway, Bayer CropScience product development manager. “It’s a single item that helps reduce an already lengthy list of inputs growers must research before making their yearly planting decisions.”
