Syngenta has gained federal Environmental Protection Agency registration of its Vibrance seed treatment fungicide, the company’s first fungicide developed specifically as a seed treatment.

Vibrance is now registered for use on cereals, soybeans and canola with additional crop registrations anticipated during the next several years, according to the company. It delivers enhanced disease protection against Rhizoctonia root rot and other yield-robbing diseases like true loose smut in barley to protect roots and help ensure consistent yield performance. The active ingredient sedaxane complements other Syngenta seed treatments and is applied at a low use rate.
