The Yellow Jacket® seed treatment technology, exclusive to Barenbrug, has become more efficient when used with a novel technology developed by the company in Brazil, which is the use of microbiological nematicide to control the spread of nematodes that cause damage to agricultural crops.

This new solution available to producers increases soil fertility while preventing nematodes from multiplying and hindering productivity.

The Yellow Jacket technology, which uses fungicides, insecticides, biostimulants and micronutrients, was developed to promote the fast and safe growth of forage in the field, as it protects the seedlings during initial development, making it is possible to anticipate first grazing and, therefore, increasing the productivity of the pasture area.

The use of microbiological nematicide in the Yellow Jacket technology is another Barenbrug advantage

The inclusion of microbiological nematicide in the Yellow Jacket technology brings more benefits to producers. The Technological Development Team of Barenbrug do Brasil has dedicated itself intensively to scientific studies and analyses, to create an efficient treatment solution in the fight against nematodes.

“The use of microbiological nematicide in the seed treatment of cover crops is an additional tool for producers during periods between harvests, to increase the natural productive capacity of soils”, explained Paulo Ramalho (Agronomist and Technological Development Coordinator at Barenbrug).
What are the benefits of using seeds treated with microbiological nematicide?

Plants from seeds treated with nematicide have lower nematode infection rates. When using seeds treated with microbiological nematicide, an increase in the population of these microorganisms in the rhizosphere region of the roots of forage plants is expected.

The use of nematicides will cause an increase in microbiological activity in that region and, therefore, there is competition for space, predation of eggs, and reduction in the multiplication capacity of the nematode species, Pratylenchus brachyurus.

This, in treated crops, will not only control the nematode population but will also help the physical structure of the soil, due to the greater root volume produced within the soil profile. After drying, the forage will remain in place and will be subject to the decomposition process. This, in turn, favors soil fertility, helping to cycle important nutrients for crop production.
