Fortenza insecticide is now registered as a soybean seed treatment for control of below-ground pests such as European chafer, June beetle, wireworm and seed corn maggot, according to a release by Syngenta Canada. 

An insecticide seed treatment is the only way to control below-ground pests. Left unchecked, these insects feed on the roots of growing soybean seedlings, resulting in stunted plants and a compromised soybean stand.

“Fortenza is a Group 28, non-neonicotinoid insecticide that is safe on seed and compatible with most Rhizobium-based inoculants,” says Shaun Vey, Seedcare™ and Inoculants Product Lead with Syngenta Canada. 

Vey says that Fortenza can be combined with Vibrance Maxx fungicide to add control of a broad spectrum of diseases that includes seed rot, seedling blight, pre‑ and post‑emergent damping off, and early-season root rot on Phytophthora-tolerant varieties.

Fortenza is applied at rates of 41.5 to 83 mL per 100 kg of seed (25 to 50 g of active ingredient per 100 kg of seed) for control of European chafer, June beetle, and seed corn maggot. The higher rate should be used for control of wireworm.
