Nufarm Launches New Seed Treatment Solutions

Nufarm Americas, Inc. has announced the addition of new, innovative and proven seed treatment solutions to its product portfolio. Promoting strong root development and plant growth, leading to more consistent stands and better yields for a range of crops, the new products include three new Spirato seed treatments, Sativa IMF Sembolite MAX, and Salient 372 FS. With the addition of these products, Nufarm provides numerous options that fit individual grower’s needs.

Expanded Spirato lineup adds flexibility based on field conditions for soybeans, dry beans, rice, cotton and more. The Spirato premix lineup provides the convenience of registered premixes with the flexibility of custom-fit seed treatments in three unique, ready-to-use combinations.

  • Spirato M 185 FS combines two fungicide chemistries – fludioxonil and metalaxyl – to protect soybean, seed and pod vegetables, rice and cotton against seed rots and the seedling diseases Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Pythium and Phytophthora.
  • Spirato M 285 FS is a registered blend of fludioxonil and metalaxyl plus thiophanate-methyl, which provides powerful, systemic protection against devastating diseases such as Rhizoctonia and Fusarium for soybeans, dry beans and succulent beans.
  • Spirato IM 348 FS harnesses the power of three fungicides plus an insecticide for increased systemic pest control. It is registered for soybeans, dry beans and succulent beans.

“Our new Spirato line of premixes combines the best of convenience and proven performance, making them excellent choices for a wide range of seed treatment needs,” said Joe Steinlage, customer and brand marketing for Nufarm.

Sativa IMF Sembolite MAX provides more consistent disease control for cereals.

Sativa IMF Sembolite MAX combines all the protection of Sativa IMF MAX with the nutritional benefits of Sembolite in one convenient premix to give cereals such as barley and wheat the best chance for a strong start. Sativa IMF Sembolite MAX protects against seed decay caused by Aspergillus, Penicillum and other species. It also protects seeds and seedlings against a variety of diseases such as Rhizoctonia, Fusarium and Pythium with more consistent control than conventional mixtures.

Salient 372 FS is an ideal option for broad-spectrum protection in cereals, cotton and corn.

Salient 372 FS, which contains difenoconazole, provides broad-spectrum disease control to provide both preventive and curative protection against many seed and soil diseases including Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, seed rots and dwarf bunt.

Nufarm’s new seed treatment products shield vulnerable seed with proven fungicides and insecticides resulting in stronger seedlings and a better crop stand. For more information and a complete list of Nufarm Seed Treatment Products, visit www.nufarm.com/USST.
