Routine Start is the first dry rice seed treatment product on the Chinese market for the control of rice blast and bakanae disease. Working with treated and protected rice seeds will help farmers grow their crops in a safe and more efficient way. Routine Start has already been introduced in other important rice production countries such as Malaysia, Japan, and Vietnam, where the Bayer SeedGrowth team has received very positive feedback from farmers regarding yield results and convenience. “Once Routine Start is broadly launched in China, it will contribute to the increased and sustainable production of rice for the growing population in Asia,” says Casper van Rooijen, Segment Manager Rice for Bayer SeedGrowth. “It shows our commitment to innovation and to helping growers become more successful.”
