VIBRANCE™ seed treatment is a proprietary fungicide based on the new active ingredient sedaxane. It is the first Syngenta molecule developed specifically for the seed treatment market. VIBRANCE offers unique RootingPower that results in stronger, healthier roots for higher crop performance – right from the start.

Root Health: key to improving crop performance

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.

Ensuring healthier, stronger roots for all major crops – right from the start

With a new mode of action, VIBRANCE defends roots against a wide range of diseases carried in soil and air, as well as against seed infection. It provides long-lasting protection of the entire plant root system through critical development stages of the crop and under a wide range of environmental conditions. The resulting optimized root performance lays the foundation for stable, robust yields.

VIBRANCE on a worldwide scale

Syngenta announced the first registration in Argentina for use on cereals in May 2011. Additional registrations in France, USA, Canada, Czech Republic and Australia were granted in 2012. Further registrations in all major crops and geographies worldwide are expected over the next two years.
