The Perfect Trio for your Pioneer® brand soybeans

lumisena, lumiderm, pioneer and acapela

Necessity is the mother of invention, or so the saying goes. It’s why modern-day society is how it is and why we have Bluetooth technology and GPS in our trucks and tractors and drones to scout our fields for weeds and disease. These were invented to make life easier, simpler, and better.

The same could be said for how you grow your crops today. A lot has changed over the years, and those changes have helped you become the grower you are now. Evolving to become more efficient at what you do doesn’t have to be rocket science - but in the case of your soybean crops, it definitely helps if science is involved. At Corteva Agriscience™, we want to make your job as simple and straightforward as possible, providing you with a range of products to not only protect and grow your crops but to also save you time, energy and money. How do we do that?

Countless hours of research, quality assurance and field trials - and the Lumisena™ Perfect Trio.

The Lumisena Perfect Trio is made up of Lumisena fungicide seed treatment, Lumiderm™ insecticide seed treatment and Acapela™ fungicide. When paired with Pioneer® brand soybean hybrids like P05A35X, P09A53X, P16A84X, P24A80X, or P31A95BX, you’re looking at an unstoppable soybean crop.

Lumisena provides you with the most advanced protection against phytophthora, offering a unique class of chemistry for improved above and below ground disease control for higher yield potential. It’s the only seed-applied technology that delivers residual protection across multiple stages of the phytophthora pathogen’s life cycle. It improves plant stands and enhances plant vigour and emergence to maximize yield potential.

Lumiderm provides broad spectrum protection from early-season pests including bean leaf beetle and soybean aphid and delivers uniform, healthy stands for maximum yields. Using a unique mode of action with a favourable environmental profile, Lumiderm simplifies seed treatment decision-making considerably.

Acapela is your broad-spectrum fungicide that’s designed to provide outstanding protection against white mould, Asian soybean rust, frogeye leafspot and septoria brown spot in soybeans. It’s the only group 11 fungicide that controls white mould, a one-of-a-kind fungicide that quickly and efficiently surrounds, penetrates and protects the leaf and stem. In addition to outstanding disease control, Acapela supports positive plant performance, even in stressful conditions, increasing chlorophyll content and plant productivity.
