Valent Announces Registration of Intego Suite Soybeans

Valent U.S.A. Corporation announces the registration of its all-in-one formulation of Intego Suite Soybeans, a new seed protectant to control multiple species of Pythium and Phytophthora. The new formulation eliminates the need to mix components prior to treating seed, making the treating process easier for seed companies and retailers.
Intego Suite Soybeans contains multiple active ingredients, including ethaboxam, the first seed protection fungicide introduced in over 35 years for Pythium and Phytophthora protection. By utilizing a dual mode of action, Intego Suite Soybeans create a complete zone of protection around the seedling. This zone of protection shields the plant from a wider spectrum of Pythium species and Phytophthora, as well as more soil-borne diseases and insects.
“Not only will Intego Suite Soybeans streamline the soybean seed treating process, eliminating several time-consuming steps, but the added red colorant will also assure seed is entirely treated and protected,” says Thad Haes, seed protection market manager for Valent. “Providing retailers with the best and easiest soybean seed treatment product on the market was Valent’s goal, and I feel confident we’ve done that with Intego Suite Soybeans.”
