Valent U.S.A. Corp. has announced 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.

"Not only will it 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," Thad Haes, seed protection market manager for Valent, said.

The product contains multiple active ingredients, including ethaboxam, the first seed protection fungicide introduced in over 35 years for Pythium and Phytophthora protection. By using a dual mode of action, it creates a complete zone of protection around the seedling that shields the plant from a wider spectrum of Pythium species, Phytophthora and more soil-borne diseases and insects than any other seed treatment on the market.

During independent university and research trials, the fomulation proved to deliver a yield increase of 1.5 bushels per acre in soybeans over competitive seed treatments. It also offers a lower use rate of 3.37 fluid ounces per hundredweight and will be packaged in a 15-gallon drum that will treat 1,100 units of soybeans.
