AgriMarketing Names Saltro Fungicide Seed Treatment Its New Product of the Year

Saltro fungicide seed treatment offers improved protection from SDS and soybean cyst nematode, without causing plant stress.

Saltro® fungicide seed treatment is the 2020 AgriMarketing New Product of the Year. Available for commercial use following its September 2019 registration, Saltro provides stronger emergence and higher yield potential.

“Many soybean growers think they have to give up early-season plant health to get Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) protection. But with Saltro, that’s no longer true, and growers confirmed the excellent performance against SDS and soybean cyst nematode that we had seen in our trials,” says Paul Oklesh, Syngenta Seedcare product lead. “We’re very proud to be named AgriMarketing’s New Product of the Year — and it feels great knowing that we’re helping growers get better yield and a better deal.”
