Pioneer treating new soybean varieties with CruiserMaxx Beans

In 2008, the newly released soybean varieties introduced by Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, will be treated with a CruiserMaxx Beans brand seed treatment from Syngenta Seed Care, offering soybean growers a powerful combination of traits and pest protection.

"To maximize the high yield potential of our new variety releases, we are treating all of them with CruiserMaxx Beans to amplify early-season disease protection and protect the varieties from pests such as bean leaf beetle and soybean aphid," says Don Schafer, senior marketing manager, Pioneer Hi-Bred.

The new varieties from Pioneer will offer performance a step above current market-leading varieties along with resistance and tolerance to many key pests. The automatic application of CruiserMaxx Beans to these new varieties will help protect the genetic yield potential in every seed.

CruiserMaxx Beans is an insecticide/fungicide seed treatment combination that offers growers protection against a broad-spectrum of early-season insects including soybean aphid, bean leaf beetle, seedcorn maggot and wireworm. In addition, it provides excellent protection against all major seed- and soil-borne disease pathogens, including Pythium, early-season Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, seed-borne Sclerotinia, seed-borne Phomopsis and general seed rots.
