avicta_logoSyngenta Seedcare launched an updated online training module that educates audiences about corn nematodes and how to protect corn plants from these invisible but costly pests with Avicta Complete Corn seed treatment. The module first launched in 2009.

Through a series of short, informative sections, participants learn about corn nematodes, including how to identify them and prevent yield loss with Avicta Complete Corn seed treatment.

The module underscores the commitment of Syngenta to provide farmers with technologies that will help them grow more corn.

Plant-parasitic corn nematodes are microscopic, threadlike worms that infect corn plants and cause symptoms including overall stunting or wilting, yellow leaves, and damaged or swollen roots with lesions. There is no rescue treatment for corn nematodes—plant health cannot be restored after corn nematodes have infected and damaged the corn plant. Yield loss is irreversible as well.
