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.
You can see when ILeVO is working. The “Halo Effect” manifests itself as a short-term photo-sensitive reaction at the margin of the cotyledons, with almost no impact on true leaves, emergence, plant stands or yields. You can use it with the confidence that an application will positively impact your soybeans.
Under slow growing conditions ILeVO treated seeds may show delayed growth during VE to V2 growth stages. Plants transition quickly to normal plant characteristics as trifoliates appear.
ILeVO is the first and only seed treatment registered with activity on Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) available to Canadian soybean growers:
SDS can cause significant financial and yield impact:
Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) presence is difficult to see and diagnose:
Sudden Death Syndrome (Fusarium virguliforme)
Root Lesion Nematode (Pratylenchus penetrans)
Soybean Cyst Nematodes (Heterodera glycines)

ILeVO Fact Sheet
ILeVO Seed Tag
For resistance management, ILeVO contains a Group 7 fungicide. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to ILeVO and other Group 7 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
