Seed Treatment

Dedicated To Innovation With Integrity

Upgraded SDS protection has arrived: Saltro® fungicide seed treatment has received federal registration and is now available for the 2020 growing season.

At Syngenta, we strive to develop seed treatments that optimize your seed’s performance rather than create a generic blended product that may not yield results. We’re transparent and want you to know what’s on your seed so you can confidently ask for a Syngenta seed treatment by name. With novel active ingredients and crop specific seed treatment recipes across all major crops, our goal is to improve germination, seedling vigor, plant stand and healthy root systems to get your crops off to a great start. We believe new technologies can change the way we grow and protect crops.

We’re constantly accelerating innovation in a changing world. We stand by the safety of our highly-regulated products and the role they play in protecting food quality and safety. We’re consistently working with partners to further reduce residues in crops without impacting productivity, and we’re continuing to improve soil health and prevent soil erosion. Our team of experts at The Seedcare Institute™, across 3 locations in North America, tests active ingredients to ensure they stay on the seed, reducing dust-off and improving plantability. We test all of our seed treatments in various field planter equipment (including mechanical and pneumatic systems) across all environmental conditions to ensure optimal performance and ease of use.

Our comprehensive efforts help protect your seed so your crops realize their full yield potential at harvest.
