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.

QuickRoots® technology helps maximize corn yields — especially in fields with limitations in moisture or nutrient availability. QuickRoots technology offers the enhanced nutrient capability of nitrogen, phosphate and potassium, which support root and shoot growth — leading to a stronger crop and greater yield potential.

Benefits of QuickRoots:

Increases phosphate availability and uptake, which increases root volume.

Enables better plant growth and increases yield potential.

Larger root volume helps the plant access more moisture and nutrients, including nitrogen and potassium.

Protect corn from stress with increased moisture and nutrient availability.

Vayantis® fungicide seed treatment provides substanially better Pythium protection than older technologies. Vayantis is the latest systemic fungicide seed treatment developed to protect corn seedlings from reduced plant stands, stunting and damping off disease caused by
Pythium spp. It is a completely new mode of action and therefore a very valuable tool to help prevent resistance development and maximize genetic performance and yield potential.

Benefits of Vayantis:

  • Delivers a novel mode of action with no cross resistance to other oomycete products.
  • Supports early planting and conservation tillage.
  • Can be easily combined with other products.
  • Allows for planting flexibility.
  • Helps provide strong early establishment of the crop and reinforced Pythium protection to high value seeds.

Seed treated with Seedworx has an enhanced
shiny appearance that seed handlers
and growers notice immediately. Beyond
appearance, seed finished with Seedworx flows
better through seed handling equipment and
planters. This means fewer problems with
seed bridging and sticking for more consistent
seeding and planting performance.
