The product is comprised of naturally-occurring microbes, which provides for easy handling for seed treaters, requiring standard personal protection equipment.

In a 2017 trial, retailers in the Midwest and the South saw greater than 90% seed coverage, under a wide range of cold and warm conditions when treated.
Research trials that included known SCN infestations showed a 1.83 bu. per acre response to Aveo EZ added to the base treatment. Aveo EZ is available as a standalone product, and it can easily be added to Intego Suite soybeans with a minimal adjustment to the treater settings. To learn more at www.soybeanprotection.com.
