Early-Season Peanut Protection Starts With Seed Treatments

Counter early-season disease threats like Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and Aspergillus with powerful seed treatments to maximize yields.

In peanut fields across the Southeast, diseases like Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Aspergillus are ramping up to attack. Seed treatments can help maximize yields and profit potential throughout the planting season by protecting vulnerable seedlings from these threats.

Once the furrow has been closed, there are no economically viable management options for crown rot diseases like Rhizoctonia and Aspergillus, highlighting the importance of strong seed treatments paired with early-season scouting.

Researchers from the University of Georgia and the University of Florida as well as researchers from Auburn University, Mississippi State University and Clemson University, found that untreated fungal diseases in peanuts could cause an estimated crop loss of more than 50%.

Trebuset® Peanuts seed treatment is a broad-spectrum liquid fungicide premix powered by ADEPIDYN® technology. It provides quick and effective absorption into the plant for longer-lasting suppression of damaging diseases. Trebuset Peanuts combines active ingredients from five high-performing fungicides ― Apron XL®, Dynasty®, Miravis®, Maxim® 4FS and Vibrance® ― that consistently protect peanut crops from early-season diseases.

Due to its liquid formulation, Trebuset Peanuts sticks to the seed and remains in the root zone as the plant grows, providing a strong start to a seed’s journey into a fully formed plant. As a result, Trebuset Peanuts consistently protects developing roots and plants, delivering strong stands and higher yield potential.
