Shield Crop Roots From Yield-Robbing Nematodes

While their presence often is unknown, corn nematodes are present on many acres and have potential to rob corn farmers of yield. Lumialza™ nematicide seed treatment is a biological nematicide that shields plant roots from nematodes and works with beneficial soil organisms that improve water and nutrient absorption. Lumialza provide >80 days of root protection in all root zones against a wide range of nematodes, including sting, needle, lance, stubby-root, root-knot, dagger and lesion. Reduced nematode pressure means higher yield potential. Seed treated with Lumialza nematicide yielded an advantage of 3.7 bu/A under low nematode pressure, and up to 9 bu/A under heavier pressure in 2018 research trials.**

Protect Your Corn From Diseases

Our seed treatment recipe includes multiple ingredients working in concert to provide robust protection against a range of key diseases in corn, such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium and head smut. Bringing multiple modes of action into the fungicide recipe protects against a full spectrum of diseases -- delivering the most comprehensive disease protection package yet. Research shows corn treated with ipconazole, a recent addition to the disease protection offering, produced a yield advantage of 3 bu/A over the previous standard seed treatment and an average yield advantage of 8 bu/A in areas with early season stress.*

Protect Seedlings With Effective Insecticide Corn Seed Treatment

Lumivia® insecticide seed treatment at a 250 rate delivers a unique mode of action against chewing insects and enhances insecticidal protection against wireworm, white grub, black cutworm, seed corn maggot, grape colaspis and fall armyworm. It is complemented by clothianidin at a 250 rate. Combined, these two modes of action provide protection against the broadest insect spectrum in the industry, delivering better plant stands and reducing runt plants.

Enhanced Insect Protection

NEW for the 2022 growing season is our Enhanced CRW Package. It features the same fungicide seed treatments and Lumialza nematicide as our Premium Package, with a 1250 rate of Lumisure™ insecticide seed treatment. This package improves yield potential by protecting your corn crop against a wide range of insects. The Enhanced CRW Package is included on all of our triple-stack corn products and can be added on double-stack corn products.

*Seed-applied technology replicated and strip trial data comparing ipconazole-based recipe to the 2018 seed treatment recipe without ipconazole. This 2018 data included 212 location comparisons in the overall and 93 locations which were under early season stress.

**Data is based on 10-state broad-acre head-to-head strip trial comparing Lumialza™ nematicide seed treatment vs. non-nematicide seed treatment utilizing the same insecticide and fungicide recipe in seed-applied technology replicated and strip trial data. Yields ranged from 3 to 9 bu/A depending on nematode species and population, in 184 low stress and 54 moderate to high stress locations.
