You may not even realize you have it. Soybean Cyst Nematodes (SCN) cause root damage and make soybeans more vulnerable to diseases such as Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS). So when you think of your soybeans and higher yields, think ILeVO™ seed treatment; the only seed treatment that protects against both SCN and SDS.
Protecting against these pests will help you maximize yield through ensuring a healthy start for your soybeans. The effectiveness of ILeVO is backed by field trials in the US and Canada over the past 6 years, including trials with the University of Guelph and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
2015 and 2016 Ontario field trials showed an overall ILeVO yield benefit of 3.6 bu/acre over the base treatment in areas with known nematode pressure.
2011 - 2016 US and Canadian university field trials showed an overall ILeVO yield benefit of 4.7 bu/acre in 338 variety locations in fields with and without above ground visual SDS symptoms observed.
- 2015 US average yields were 2.9 bu/acre higher when soybeans were treated with ILeVO without above ground visual SDS symptoms observed
- 2015 US average yields were 6.5 bu/acre higher when soybeans were treated with ILeVO with above ground visual SDS symptoms observed
