Valent USAWhen choosing which seed protectant to use Northern Plains wheat growers consider two questions.  What will keep my seed safe from seedling diseases and insects and what is easiest to use on my farm?

Valent U.S.A. Corporation hopes to help answer these questions with a new video explaining the NipsIt SUITE Cereals program.

Acting as both a contact and super-systemic protectant, NipsIt SUITE Cereals provides “inside out” protection against diseases such as Rhizoctonia, Pythiumand Fusarium. The additional NipsIt INSIDE® Insecticide also controls wireworms, aphids and other insects better than any other product on the market by combining three powerful active ingredients in one formulation.

“NipsIt SUITE Cereals is a premium solution for growers who want to maximize production by providing outstanding insect and disease control,” said Tom Harris, seed protection market manager for Valent U.S.A. Corporation. “NipsItSUITE is easy to use in all temperature conditions, which is a huge benefit to growers in the north whose temperatures may fluctuate 30 degrees on any given day of planting.”

Recent independent research trials conducted near Scobey, Montana, indicate that using NipsIt SUITE Cereals increased yield by more than two bushels per acre compared to its closest competitor due to its excellent control of soil borne diseases and wireworm. These trials also indicated stronger plant stand.

“We’ve been using NipsIt, and that’s been working really well,” said Doug Opland, grower from Des Lacs, North Dakota. “In the mornings, it’s 20 to 26 degrees, and it doesn’t seem to matter. In the mornings, it works just as well as in the afternoon when it’s 60.”
