Merschman Seeds is excited to announce the availability of a brand new soybean seed treatment from Bayer CropScience, ILeVO® for protection against Sudden Death Syndrome. This new soybean seed treatment is the only solution for SDS that has activity against nematodes. ILeVO protects the root system against the SDS fungus and has activity on nematodes in the seed zone, producing healthier plants for higher yield potential. In 2014 research trials, soybean varieties planted with ILeVO produced a 7.7 BPA yield advantage across all levels of diseases pressure and a 14.34 BPA yield advantage when the SDS index was high (71%—80% infected).
