Why use seed treatments?

You have probably heard that a seed’s greatest yield potential is the highest just before it goes into the ground. After that, there are many factors such as insects, diseases, and environmental conditions that are threatening that seed’s very existence, let alone its high end yield potential! Fortunately, there are key decisions that growers can make to mitigate risks and establish a good stand at planting. Getting a good stand provides the base for a successful growing season. Seed is one of the largest investments made during the growing season, and seed treatments play a critical role in protecting that investment from a wide range of yield robbing pests. Legend Seeds has a great portfolio of products to protect your yield potential and provide success throughout the growing season.

Protect soybeans like a pro with premium protection against insects and diseases.

As a grower, soybean treatment is an important input decision you have to make and the products you choose to apply have a direct impact on your bottom line. That's why Legend Seeds is excited to announce the launch of a new seed treatment product, YP Pro, to enhance your results in the field and increase ROI.

YP Pro (Yield Protector Professional) is a custom blend of three fungicides and an insecticide, designed by Legend Seeds to mitigate the stresses faced by the soybean crop after planting. It can be applied to the seed at a Legend production facility, or at local dealerships.

Growers can expect excellent control of seedling diseases such as: Phytophthora root rot, Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia. YP Pro has systemic activity to protect against Bean Leaf Beetles, Aphids, Seed-corn Maggot and Wireworm.

YP Pro treated beans also include a specialized powdered seed coating, YP F&S (Flow and Shine) which greatly improves handling and plantability.

Legend Seeds has developed this specific formulation to meet the needs of growers in our region. Field observations in our Knowledge Plots and third party replicated yield trials prove that YP Pro performs with the best treatments in the industry. YP Pro is available in the Legend Advantage Gold Plus (AGP) and Legend Advantage Silver Plus (ASP) soybean seed treatment packages.

"We were exceptionally happy with the plantability of our Legend soybeans with the new seed treatment. After filling the planter with the YP Pro treated soybeans, we had two different rain delays. It was humid when we got back to the field.

We have had issues with seed bridging up in the past, but with the YP Pro treated beans we had no issues and the seed flowed through the air seeder great."
