Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) has been steadily expanding its U.S. presence since the 1950s and now, as the No. 1 pest for U.S. soybean growers, SCN accounts for $1.5 billion of lost yield annually. Despite the extensive use of SCN-resistant seed, SCN expansion has not slowed. This is due, in part, to the reliance on a single source of genetic resistance, PI88788. With SCN now in every major soybean-producing state, growers and researchers alike are looking for new solutions. Syngenta offers a unique management tool for fighting SCN: Clariva® Complete Beans seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products.
The nematicide active ingredient in Clariva Complete Beans provides more sustainable SCN management, enhancing the performance of SCN-resistant varieties and reducing damage from SCN-related diseases such as soybean sudden death syndrome. Through lethal activity against SCN, Clariva Complete Beans has proven to be effective and last all season long, giving growers a new tool to help them grow more soybeans.
