New seed treatment for Rhizoctonia control in pulses

Apr. 7, 2014 - Syngenta Canada Inc. has launched Vibrance Maxx seed treatment, a combination of Apron Maxx RTA and Vibrance, for use on peas, lentils and chickpeas. Vibrance Maxx seed treatment provides control of early-season diseases, including Rhizoctonia, to help ensure a healthy stand establishment.

Vibrance Maxx for pulses gives growers the advantage of three active ingredients: fludioxonil, metalaxyl-M and sedaxane. Vibrance Maxx provides control of seed decay, seedling blight, damping-off caused by Rhizoctonia solani and post-emergent damping-off. This product also helps manage soil-borne disease pressure often associated with short rotations and increased soil conservation practices.

For growers who require control of insects such as pea leaf weevil and wireworms, Vibrance Maxx may also be mixed with Cruiser 5FS. The Cruiser 5FS product can be mixed and applied on-farm using a closed-system treater.
