Syngenta receives EPA approval for Trebuset Cereals seed treatment

Trebuset Cereals guards against seedling diseases, getting crops off to a strong start.

Syngenta recently received EPA approval for Trebuset Cereals, new seed treatment fungicide with broad-spectrum disease control.

Trebuset uses the active ingredient Pydiflumetofen to help cereal growers fight soilborne Fusarium, tan spot, and powdery mildew, says Josh Kelley, product lead with Syngenta Seedcare. “Additionally, Trebuset stays in the root zone as the plant grows to provide longer protection, leading to vigorous seedlings and increased yield potential.” 

Crops labeled for Trebuset Cereals include: 

  • Barley
  • Corn (grown for seed)
  • Corn, field
  • Corn, popcorn
  • Corn, sweet
  • Oats
  • Peanuts
  • Rye
  • Spring wheat
  • Triticale
  • Wheat, durum

Kelley notes that Trebuset uses Adepidyn a new molecule that is low-lasting and has a low use rate. The treatment features a unique N-methoxy ethyl linker, making it possible to combine these features into a single molecule for the first time. What that means for farmers is a new mode of action against Fusarium and greater movement into the seed coat for best-in-class disease protection and long-lasting control – even under heavy pressure.

Trebuset Cereals also brings a higher level of early-season control of tan spot and powdery mildew, while also managing seed rot and seedling blight. With vigorous soil movement, Trebuset Cereals protects developing roots, which promotes strong stands and ultimately enhances yield potential. As it moves through the soil to protect developing roots, Trebuset Cereals promotes strong early-season stand establishment and enhanced yield potential.

At planting, farmers could see lower dust-off and improved flow for greater planting efficiency.

Ultimately, “Trebuset delivers the risk management growers need to power through the early season on the way to a profitable harvest,” Kelley says.
