Spring conditions are tough.
Is your seed treatment up to snuff?
Spring conditions are tough for pulse crops. Diseases thrive in damp soil conditions, while cold temperatures impair the crop’s ability to fend off disease. Now with tightened rotations and reduced tillage practices, it’s no wonder seed and seedling diseases are a rising concern.
Protect your crop from the get-go.
Test your seed for diseases and use a fungicide seed treatment. This will help manage any seed-borne or unknown soil-borne diseases, as well as prevent the introduction and build-up of inoculum in your soils. A preventative treatment can save you from more expensive inputs later in the season.
By combining the unique translocation and mobility characteristics of Xemium® with the proven benefits1 of AgCelence®, Insure® Pulse delivers more consistent and continuous protection against seed and seedling diseases. Plus, it enhances germination, emergence and vigour – even under cold conditions.1AgCelence benefits refer to products that contain the active ingredient pyraclostrobin.
