Seeds carry the genetic potential of crops. They also carry substantial amounts of energy, which makes them highly attractive for pests and diseases.
Seed treatments are chemical or biological substances or physical processes applied to seeds or seedlings. They help to protect the seeds and assure optimum emergence of the crop. Application of a chemical to seeds is a very well-targeted method of reducing attacks on the growing plant by insects and diseases.
Today, Syngenta is the leader in fungicides for seed treatment with the brands DIVIDEND®, MAXIM® and APRON® XL.
