Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (May 2, 2011)--Stamina® F3 Cereals fungicide seed treatment has received EPA registration for seed treatment use on small grains, including wheat, barley, rye, oats and triticale.
“Stamina F3 Cereals arms our growers with an effective seed treatment for their small grain seedlings,” said Don Guy, Marketing Manager, BASF Cereals Portfolio. “As one of our SeedSolutions treatments in our cereals offering, Stamina F3 Cereals delivers excellent disease control, convenience of use and low-dusting application. Stamina F3 Cereals has a red colorant and its higher application rate makes it very suitable for on-farm applications. Stamina F3 Cereals also complements Stamina® F3 HL fungicide seed treatment, which is designed specifically for commercial application.”
Stamina F3 Cereals delivers the benefits of three active ingredients that work together to provide broad-spectrum seed and seedling disease control in small grains. These three active ingredients, F500® (the same active ingredient in Stamina and Stamina F3 HL fungicide seed treatments, Headline® fungicide and TwinLine® fungicide), triticonazole (active ingredient in Charter® fungicide and Charter® F2 fungicide seed treatments) and metalaxyl (active ingredient in Acquire® fungicide seed treatment) have proven performance as shown in BASF’s current Crop Protection Solutions and SeedSolutions offerings. Seed treatment application with Stamina F3 Cereals has been associated with more rapid and increased emergence of seedlings under certain cold conditions.
“Stamina F3 Cereals helps growers achieve healthier plants beginning with the seed,” said Dr. Gary Fellows, Plant Health Technical Manager for BASF SeedSolutions. “Healthier plants result from improved disease control against a broad spectrum of small grain disease threats, including common root rot and seed and seedling disease caused by Fusarium species and Rhizoctonia solani.”
Stamina F3 Cereals is part of BASF’s growing SeedSolutions portfolio that offers outstanding protection with the best seed vitality and innovative technology, thus fulfilling the needs of both farmers and seed industry partners. In addition to Stamina F3 Cereals, BASF’s seed treatment portfolio includes Charter and Charter F2 fungicide seed treatment formulations for wheat, barley, oats, rye and triticale; Acquire fungicide seed treatment for small grains and other crops; Coronet® fungicide seed treatment for certain vegetable crops; Axcess® insecticide seed treatment for small grains and other crops; Stamina fungicide seed treatment for corn, wheat, barley, peas, beans, sunflowers, lentils, alfalfa and other crops; and Stamina F3 HL for commercial treatment of wheat, barley, corn, sorghum, oats, rye and triticale seed.
