Soybean Seed Treatment

~This weeks blog is brought to you by Nathan Klassen, SeedGrowth Specialist, Bayer CropScience Inc.

While much of a producer’s time is spent deciding which soybean variety is the best for their farm, many other decisions have a large impact on how the variety will perform.

DSCN2464Proper fertility, good inoculation and a high quality seed treatment allow your soybean seed to perform to its full genetic potential.

Evergol Energy  Stress Shield is a soybean seed treatment from Bayer CropScience that contains 3 active ingredients from 3 different fungicide groups.  Penfluflen is a “new” group 3 fungicide that is used in Evergol Energy to provide class leading rhizoctonia control.  With the addition  of Prothioconazole and Metalaxyl you are fully protected from fusarium and pythium as well.  These are three of the main diseases we need to protect our soybean seed in Manitoba.

 

Using a seed treatment should not be done with an expectation of a bulkseedhandling-gentlelarge yield increase, but rather as a hedge against poor or failed stand and the enhancement of early season vigor of established seedlings.  This alone is often worth the expense of seed treatment to ensure even germination and getting the plant populations you are striving for.

Optimize Inoculant

~Today’s Blog brought to you by Dwight Willoughby,  P Ag / CCSC

BioAg representative Dale Wohlegmuth recently presented the advantages of Optimize inoculant at the Derek Erb Seeds Soybean Meeting in early December.   What sets Optimize apart from the crowd is LCO (Lipo-chitooligosaccharide) promoter technology.

Dale described this unique molecule enhancing a soybean’s nutritional capabilities.  The effect LCO has on root hairs drives communication that produces earlier, better nodulation and ultimately increased yields with higher ROI.
