In terms of putting new, effective products on the European market, 2019 is a very special year for Bayer SeedGrowth®. Marc Letroublon, Product Manager Bayer SeedGrowth for Western and Northern Europe, showcases three exciting new products that help farmers successfully cope with a broad spectrum of diseases.

Marc Letroublon: “Redigo M is effective against the two most important diseases affecting corn in its early stages: Fusarium and Pythium. The fungicidal seed treatment contains two well-proven active ingredients (Prothioconazole and Metalaxyl) providing excellent efficacy against both diseases. With registration already granted in 10 countries in the EU and be-yond (France, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine, etc.), and others to come, we are looking forward to this year’s full launch and first commercial usage of Redigo M in the EU for the 2019 corn sowing season.”

Marc Letroublon: “Scenic Gold is a fungicidal seed treatment that combines two active ingredients, Fluoxastrobin and Fluopicolide, and two different modes of action. It sets a new standard in terms of efficacy for the control of key early diseases affecting oilseed rape and provides good crop establishment. So, before too long, farmers will no longer need to worry about early infestation of Phoma, Alternaria, downy mildew (Peronospora) or damping-off (Rhizoctonia). We have already obtained registrations in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ireland and Serbia and are planning the first commercial launch for the 2019 winter oilseed rape season.”

Marc Letroublon: “Bariton Super is a liquid “dedusted” seed treatment based on three active ingredients – Prothioconazole, Fludioxonil, and Tebuconazole. It is highly effective against a broad spectrum of seed-borne and soil-borne diseases, such as snow mold, Fusarium, bunts or loose smut. It is indeed a unique combination of active substances, optimized for use in spring and winter cereals (wheat, barley, triticale, rye, oats, etc.). Bariton Super has already been launched in 2018 in Finland and in the Baltics and the country scope will significantly increase for the 2019 sowing season.”
