Valent Announces Seed Treatment Registration

Valent U.S.A. Corporation announced today 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 mixing components prior to treating seed, making the treating process easier for seed companies and retailers.

Intego Suite Soybeans contains multiple active ingredients, including ethaboxam, the first seed protection fungicide introduced in over 35 years for Pythium and Phytophthora protection. By utilizing a dual mode of action, Intego Suite creates a complete zone of protection around the seedling, according to a company report. The new formulation will protect soybeans from a wider spectrum of Pythium species and Phytophthora. It will also protect against more soilborne diseases and insects than any other seed treatment on the market, according to the company report. In independent university and research trials, Intego Suite delivered a yield increase of 1.5 bushels per acre above competitive seed treatments.

“Not only will Intego Suite Soybeans 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,” said Thad Haes, seed protection market manager for Valent. “Providing retailers with the best and easiest soybean seed treatment product on the market was Valent’s goal, and I feel confident we’ve done that with Intego Suite Soybeans.”

Intego Suite Soybeans will offer a lower use rate of 3.37 fluid ounces per cwt and will be packaged in a 15-gallon drum, enough to treat 1,100 units of soybeans.
