Arysta Launches Rancona V RTU Seed Protectant for Wheat
Arysta LifeScience North America has launched Rancona V RTU seed protectant developed to enhance germination, stimulate growth and improve crop vitality. The formulation allows cereals growers with fields of varying soil moisture levels to beat impending weather and give their crops the jump-start they need for a successful year.
“Rancona V RTU is an easy-to-use product that provides growers with consistent performance across many different environments,” says Chris Wooley, Seed Treatment Marketing Manager, Arysta LifeScience. “It helps growers protect their seeds while they germinate and helps seedlings emerge even in drier soil conditions, resulting in established stands and healthy growth before the cold weather rolls in.”
According to Arysta, the seed treatment combines three active ingredients, Ipconazole, Carboxin and Metalaxyl, which helps it deliver a broad spectrum of disease protection for plants through both contact and systemic activity, which provides both curative and preventative disease control during germination and seedling development.
“When planting, particularly for spring cereals, growers need seed to germinate, emerge and get established as quickly as possible before unfavorable weather moves in and slows down the growing process,“ says Dr. Jaime Yanes, U.S. Seed Treatment Senior Technical Manager, Arysta LifeScience. “Carboxin aids in emergence under dry soil conditions. We have seen up to 80 percent emergence in as little as 19 days in studies conducted under dry soil conditions (25 percent soil moisture). That gives growers a tremendous edge going into the season.”
