The first seed treatment insecticide for small-seeded vegetables has received EPA approval. From Syngenta Seed Care, the treatment will be available as a component of the FarMore Technology platform for use on leafy vegetables.
The insecticide component of FarMore Technology, also available for use on cucurbit vegetables, delivers targeted protection against early-season insects including aphids, flea beetles, whiteflies (suppression) and leafminers in head, romaine, and leaf lettuce only. In addition to insect protection, the technology platform offers broad-spectrum, systemic, and post-emergence disease protection against Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia.
“We are excited to offer leafy vegetable growers innovations such as the insecticide component of FarMore Technology,” said Chad Shelton, crop manager, Syngenta Seed Care. “Syngenta Seed Care is at the forefront of discovering and developing game-changing technologies and solutions for the small-seeded vegetable producer that provides excellent return on investment potential.”
