IHARA, the Brazilian agrochemical manufacturer, has recently released two of its technological innovations for seed treatment: PIRAMIDE and CERTEZA during the 18th Brazilian Seeds Congress carried by ABRATES (Brazilian Association of Seed Technology).
CERTEZA is the first registered fungicide for seed treatment, and it has proven to be effective in controlling the pathogen that causes white mold in soybeans and beans (Sclerotiniasclerotiorum). In addition, it controls the other traditional soybean diseases providing greater security to the producer in the implementation of their crop.
This product is focused on fighting the white mold disease, a disease that expands the most over the soybean regions of Brazil. The product reflects over 20 years of experience in pest management IHARA has in bean and tomato crops, where the disease limits productivity and causes severe damages to crops.
PIRAMIDE, on the other hand, is an insecticide used in seed treatment for control sucking pests and caterpillars in the early stages of the crops. The defensive assures the producer that the treated seed can actually turn into a high potential yield plant.
IHARA already has partnerships with some of the best seed companies in the market where, through TSI technology (Industrial Seed Treatment) provides treated soybean seeds. It also commercializes the products separately if the producer choosesto treat the seed in their own land through its network of distributors and partners throughout Brazil.
