Dig Up the Dirt on Nematodes

Hidden Yield Loss

Nematodes are stealing corn, soybean and cotton yields — and getting away with it.

In fact, nematodes cost an estimated 10.2% yield loss in corn, 10.6% in soybeans and 10.7% in cotton.* Yet, despite how abundant they are, most nematodes are undetectable by the human eye.

By piercing and infecting the roots of the plant, nematodes steal nutrients and water, and open the door for secondary issues.

Nematodes can cause damage and yield loss by:

  • feeding on plant roots;
  • facilitating bacterial and fungal infections;
  • and transmitting viruses.

A Broad-Spectrum Seed Treatment Technology Is Here

NemaStrike™ Technology, a seed treatment technology that provides broad-spectrum nematode control for corn, soybeans and cotton.

With a novel mode of action and low water solubility, NemaStrike Technology defends crops from the start and stays in the root zone as plants grow — for up to 75 days. Plus, it has demonstrated consistent yield protection in hundreds of field trials, over 3 years of testing, in all soil types and levels of pressure.
