Syngenta to Launch Soybean Aphid Management System

Syngenta Seeds, Inc., one of the world’s leading agricultural seed providers, will soon offer the industry’s first and only fully integrated aphid management system to protect soybean crops from yield-robbing aphid infestations.

Available in the United States for planting in 2010, the Syngenta aphid management system leverages a native gene for resistance along with the early season disease and insect control benefits of novel seed treatment products from Syngenta providing growers complete protection from aphid infestations. In addition, the advanced Syngenta foliar-applied insecticide portfolio is a component of the system if needed, providing additional protection under heavy late season infestations during critical stages to guard yield.

“Syngenta is committed to delivering elite genetics and agronomic packages that help soybean growers optimize soybean performance and reach new levels of yield now,” said Steve Knodle, NK Soybean Marketing Manager for Syngenta Seeds. “Utilizing multiple modes of action and integrated pest management practices will give soybean growers peace of mind all season long.”

More information will be available soon from your local Garst®, Golden Harvest® or NK Seeds dealer.
