“Nematodes are undetectable by the human eye, which makes it easy to underestimate the damage they can cause to a corn or soybean plant,” says Scott Beck, president of Beck’s Hybrids. “What makes Nemasect truly different is that it’s not just a nematicide, it also has activity on many soil-dwelling insects. By adding Nemasect to our Escalate seed treatment, farmers will have the best possible protection for their seed at no additional charge.”The broad-spectrum nematicide kills nematodes within 48 hours of application, with residual activity for up to 60 days after planting. It uses multi-site mode of action against eggs and juveniles to ward off resistance. Additionally, Nemasect provides dual modes of action against soil-dwelling insects such as corn rootworm, seed corn maggot, grubs and wireworms.
