Walnut Creek, California (September 16, 2011)--Valent U.S.A. Corporation announced INOVATE™ Seed Protectant will be available as an efficient pre-blended, single package offering for soybean seed protection in the coming season.


Jeff Weber, INOVATE brand manager for Valent, said this new development means treaters can take a time-saving, all-in-one approach when using the proven INOVATE to treat their soybean seed.

“INOVATE as an all-in-one option really streamlines the workload and reduces hassles for treaters during the busy seed-treating season,” Weber said. “In the new offering, INOVATE contains the colorant, the Lock Tight™ Technology, the fungicides plus the insecticide—all within a single package.”

Weber notes this single-package, no-blend-needed INOVATE offering is a major difference from most other seed treatment options—many of which require treaters to spend additional high-value time on complicated mixing calculations, procedures and lengthy paperwork before the treatment even begins.

“Treaters no longer need a pre-blend letter to use INOVATE or have to go through the time and hassle of calculating multiple product blends. This virtually eliminates potential blending errors and ensures more consistent treatment quality across the treating team,” Weber said. “Additionally, the new single package of INOVATE allows treaters to do 2,430 units out of one container. This means fewer containers and inventory cluttering the treating floor. The convenience and peace of mind this new packaging of INOVATE will bring treaters this season will be invaluable.”

Weber added that this all-in-one packaging for INOVATE will be a welcome addition to treaters who have seen the power of the yield-boosting seed protectant over the last two seasons.

“Since its introduction a few seasons ago, INOVATE has really shown excellent results in improving early-season vigor and yield, even through the tough spring conditions many growers experienced earlier this year,” Weber said. “We believe this new packaging is yet another step we can provide in helping treaters—and ultimately growers—reap the value of the proven, long-lasting seed protection delivered by INOVATE.”
