Syngenta applying FarMore Technology

Syngenta is now enhancing its cucurbit seed offerings with a standard on-seed application of FarMore Technology. All Syngenta squash, melon and open field cucumber seed sold in North America is being treated with FarMore Technology, the first comprehensive combination of separately-registered seed protection products, proprietary application technologies and dedicated seed treatment services that maximize vegetable production value by enhancing performance and quality, according to Syngenta.

Cucurbit seed, including melon and squash varieties, receive a FarMore F300 treatment, with FarMore FI400 available as an optional upgrade. Syngenta cucumber seed varieties, such as Diomede and Constable, are treated with FarMore FI400, a combination of three different but complementary fungicides providing early season protection from diseases like pythium, fusarium and rhizoctonia. The active ingredients mefenoxam, fludioxonil and azoxystrobin combined with an insecticide component deliver a full range of early season disease and pest protection, according to Syngenta.

FarMore Technology delivers early season protection against certain diseases and insects, eliminates or reduces the chance of viruses being transmitted by certain pests and improves the yield and quality potential of small-seeded vegetable crops. FarMore solutions offer compatibility with existing insect protection strategies in crops and are compatible with most Integrated Pest Management programs, according to Syngenta.
