John Carlson, Ilevo fungicide seed treatment marketing manager, Bayer CropScience, talks about the spread of sudden death syndrome (SDS) and the need to control it. He notes the December, 2014, federal registration of Ilevo seed treatment, which will mainly be applied by seed retailers “on time just in time for growers” planting soybeans. Ilevo is a fungicide that is unusual in having both nematode and fungal activity.
