Bayer CropScience announced that EverGol seed treatment fungicide was registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and will be available in the U.S. market in cotton, canola and wheat for the 2013 crop season. The newest member of Bayer CropScience’s seed treatment portfolio, EverGol offers long-lasting protection against Rhizoctonia and other problematic diseases, helping to ensure better crop establishmentand improved growth.

“EverGol is the newest fungicide in the seed treatment industry to propel the future of farming for growers in the United States,” stated Phil Gibson, seed treatment product manager, Bayer CropScience. “Studies have shown that EverGol treated seeds are quicker to emerge, grow faster and result in better crop establishment.”

In addition, EverGol formulations and their active ingredient Penflufen will provide growers with broader performance disease protection, including control of Rhizoctonia fungi and general seed decay. EverGol also promotes better stands under disease pressure and improves crop vigor which can lead to more efficient use of water and nutrients.

“With commodity prices for crops continuing to be above historical averages, the benefits of EverGol’s increased plant protection makes it a smart fungicidal seed treatment decision in which growers can be confident,” said Gibson.

The EverGol portfolio of products in the United States will include:

  • EverGol Prime for cotton
  • Prosper EverGol for canola
  • EverGol Energy for wheat

“Bayer is committed to providing growers with new agricultural solutions and improved seed treatment technology,” stated Bill Striegel, product development manager, Bayer CropScience. “The launch of EverGol will provide growers with a new tool to help protect their crop and yield potential.”
