Valent U.S.A. Corporation announced that the registration of its all-in-one formulation of Intego Suite Soybeans, a new seed protectant to control multiple species of Pythium and Phytophthora. The new formulation eliminates the hassle of mixing components prior to treating seed, making the treating process easier for seed companies and retailers.

Intego Suite Soybeans contains multiple active ingredients, including ethaboxam, the first seed protection fungicide introduced in over 35 years for Pythium and Phytophthora protection. By utilizing a dual mode of action, Intego Suite Soybeans creates a complete zone of protection around the seedling. This zone of protection shields the plant from a wider spectrum of Pythium species and Phytophthora, as well as more soil-borne diseases and insects than any other seed treatment on the market. And, Intego Suite Soybeans has consistently proven to deliver a yield increase of 1.5 bushels per acre in soybeans above competitive seed treatments, as demonstrated in independent university and research trials.

“Not only will Intego Suite Soybeans streamline the soybean seed treating process, eliminating several time-consuming steps, but the added red colorant will also assure seed is entirely treated and protected,” said Thad Haes, seed protection market manager for Valent. “Providing retailers with the best and easiest soybean seed treatment product on the market was Valent’s goal, and I feel confident we’ve done that with Intego SuiteSoybeans.”

“I’m very excited to have Intego Suite,” said Larry Craft of Schlessman Seed Company in Milan, Ohio. “We’ve been using the same thing for 35 years and we’re happy to finally be able to address the Pythium problem we’re experiencing in Ohio.”

Intego Suite Soybeans will offer a lower use rate of 3.37 fluid ounces/cwt and will be packaged in a 15-gallon drum, which will treat 1,100 units of soybeans.
