This product made it to the list because it’s the first seed treatment to combine an insecticide, fungicide and nematicide together as a seed treatment for soybeans. Syngenta’s Avicta Complete Beans is a combination of separately registered products, which contains the first seed treatment nematicide available for use on soybeans. Avicta 500 FS seed treatment nematicide is combined with CruiserMaxx Beans insecticide/fungicide seed treatment combination to provide triple protection against damaging nematodes, insects and diseases, helping increase plant stand, improve vigor and ensure each seedling reaches its full genetic yield potential.

“With Avicta Complete Beans, the interaction of a nematicide, an insecticide and fungicides delivers superior early season pest protection and even better results,” said David Long, Ph.D., technical crop manager, Syngenta.

The nematicide component of Avicta Complete Beans, Avicta 500 FS, provides immediate protection against most major nematode species, specifically root-knot, reniform, stubby-root, sting, stunt, lance and soybean cyst nematodes.

By offering effective nematode protection from the moment the seed is planted, Avicta helps promote stronger plant stand in soybean crops. This, in turn, establishes the foundation for better yield and return on investment potential.

The insecticide component of Avicta Complete Beans, the active ingredient in Cruiser seed treatment insecticide, offers plants effective and consistent early-season insect protection to get crops off to a healthy, vigorous start. Avicta Complete Beans protects soybean plants from a variety of insects, including thrips, threecornered alfalfa hoppers, grape colaspis, leafhoppers, white grubs, aphids, bean leaf beetles, seedcorn maggots and wireworms.

Avicta Complete Beans also contains the active ingredient from the seed treatment fungicide ApronMaxx. The proven disease protection of Avicta Complete Beans works to safeguard the plant from devastating diseases that can hinder emergence and inhibit growth. Avicta Complete Beans protects against the most harmful seed- and soil-borne disease pathogens in soybeans, leading to improved plant stands, better emergence and early-season vigor, and higher yield potential.
