Syngenta Announces Registration of Nematicide Product

Syngenta Announces Registration of Nematicide Product

Product will be offered for the 2014 season with leading insecticide and fungicide packages

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency granted registration approval to Syngenta for its bio-control nematicide seed treatment that offers a direct mode of action that is lethal to the soybean cyst nematode.

Syngenta says SCN damage is often misdiagnosed or confused with other crop protection problems and can increase disease.

"The bio-control nematicide seed treatment is highly effective against soybean cyst nematode," said David Winston, seedcare product lead, Syngenta. "It provides instant activity from the moment of planting and offers season-long protection. As the solution growers have been seeking for years, this seed treatment nematicide complements crop rotation practices and SCN resistant varieties."

Syngenta says the bio-control nematicide reduces SCN feeding and reproduction, and kills the pest via Pasteuria spp., which is a bacteria that is a natural enemy to SCN. The bio-control nematicide will be commercialized for the 2014 season with the leading insecticide and fungicide packages from Syngenta.

Syngenta recently acquired Pasteuria Bioscience, Inc., a U.S.-based biotechnology company. Since 2011, Syngenta and Pasteuria have had an exclusive global technology partnership to develop and commercialize biological products to control plant-parasitic nematodes, using the naturally occurring soil bacteria Pasteuria spp.
