GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syngenta announced Environmental Protection Agency registration of CruiserMaxx® Advanced insecticide/fungicide seed treatment for use on soybeans. CruiserMaxx Advanced joins the CruiserMaxx Beans brand family as a new formulation and offers the same benefits as CruiserMaxx Plus insecticide/fungicide seed treatment with an additional technology that delivers improved application characteristics with less sticking and bridging of wet seed.
“CruiserMaxx Plus gave retailers in areas with high Pythium and Phytophthora a convenient all-in-one product that contained additional mefenoxam (Apron XL® fungicide). CruiserMaxx Advanced goes one step further,” said Marc George, brand asset lead for Syngenta. “The additional technology in CruiserMaxx Advanced helps ensure more precise application and even better coverage of the seed to further maximize early-season insect and disease protection.”
CruiserMaxx Beans insecticide/fungicide seed treatment combination provides protection against a broad spectrum of both soil-dwelling and foliar-feeding insect pests, as well as all major seedborne and soilborne disease pathogens for increased vigor, stand, speed to canopy and yield potential. CruiserMaxx Plus and CruiserMaxx Advanced are premix formulations available to retailers applying CruiserMaxx Beans. The first season on the market for CruiserMaxx Plus was 2011. CruiserMaxx Advanced will be available for the 2012 planting season.
