What is the take home message? That "pink stuff" on your seed does not guarantee protection against all pests, diseases and nematodes. Make sure you ask all the right questions to ensure that you are getting a return on your seed treatment investment!
- What is the rate of the insecticide?
- Do you have nematode protection?
- Do you have SDS protection? We have PS SDS (ILeVO).
- How many fungicides are in the seed treatment?
- Do you have a fungicide that protects against pythium or phytophthora (oomycetes)?
- What are the fungicide rates?
- Do you have a biological?
Not all seed treatments are the same! Burrus will extensively test more seed treatment components in 2017 in order to continue the success of our PowerShield® seed treatment in the future.
