VIBRANCE® - New Seedcare Compound for Root Health

VIBRANCE® is the first Syngenta molecule developed specifically for seed treatment. In addition to broad spectrum disease control, it offers unique RootingPower™ that results in stronger, healthier roots for higher crop productivity – right from the start. Worldwide field trials show higher and more consistent yields for all major crops.

Root Health: a key to higher crop productivity

Root Healch

Changes in agriculture worldwide - including increased demand for food and biofuel - drive new research directions such as Root Health. This research increasingly focuses on the ability of roots to efficiently use water and nutrients as a key to further improvements in crop productivity. VIBRANCE is a major step towards integrated Root Health solutions.

Protecting and enhancing roots systems for key crops worldwide

With a new mode of action for the seed treatment market, VIBRANCE defends roots against a wide range of diseases carried in soil, air and on the seed. It provides long-lasting protection of the entire plant root system through critical crop development stages and under a wide range of environmental conditions. The VIBRANCE root stimulating effect results in better biotic and abiotic stress management – the foundation for higher and more consistent yield.

Syngenta won the 2011 Agrow Award for Best New Crop Protection Product for VIBRANCE, underscoring the value of this innovation.
