Greensboro, North Carolina (October 17, 2013)--Syngenta® brand seed now enhances all squash seed with a standard treatment of FarMore® FI400 Cucurbits technology. FarMore Technology is 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.
“Following the overwhelmingly positive response to the standard treatment of cucumber seed in 2012 and increasingly high demand for FarMore FI400 Cucurbits application on our additional cucurbit varieties, offering this standard treatment to our squash seed customers was a clear and necessary next step,” said Lisa Moricle, Syngenta cucurbit portfolio manager.
Syngenta zucchini varieties, such as Payload and Pascola, as well as golden varieties including Goldprize and Gentry, will be treated with FarMore FI400 Cucurbits. The three proven and complementary fungicides protect against devastating diseases such as Pythium, Fusarium, and Rhizoctonia while thiamethoxam delivers broad-spectrum protection against key pests including cucumber beetles, whiteflies, and leafminers.
