Simplifying Soybean Decisions

Bayer CropScience offers new one-stop system for seed-applied inputs.

The Trilex 6000 Soybean System from Bayer CropScience — new for the 2008 season — can help growers manage part of the time puzzle: researching and deciding seed-applied soybean inputs by offering custom-matched solutions into a single system.

Trilex 6000 Soybean System combines the technologies of Trilex, Yield Shield, and Allegiance seed-applied fungicides; Celgard; Gaucho seed-applied insecticide; and Pro-Ized Red Colorant in one seed treatment. These products combine to protect against detrimental insects and fungi including overwintering bean leaf beetle, soybean aphids, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Pythium, and early season Phytophthora.

Soybean production isn’t as simple as once thought. According to the University of Illinois, seed treatments can pay if planting early, planting no-till ground, there is a history of insect pressure, or the seed is expensive.

Trilex 6000 Soybean System has been shown to increase soybean yields, according to the manufacturer. A series of Midwest university yield trials conducted in 2006 found soybeans treated with Trilex 6000 Soybean System delivered an average yield 13 percent higher than untreated soybeans.
