Nufarm announces EPA approval of Trunemco™ seed-applied technology for nematode management
[May 16, 2019] Morrisville, N.C. – Nufarm Americas announced today the EPA approval of Trunemco™, a new seed-applied nematode management technology that provides higher yield profiles and less nematode damage in soybeans, cotton and corn.
Trunemco seed-applied treatment is a patented technology that primes plant physiology, activating the natural nematode barriers that optimize protection. Its biochemical and microbial actives provide a dual defense, inside and out, against nematode feeding and establishment. Trunemco protects against nematode damage while supporting root health and seedling vigor to help plants thrive, delivering higher yields. Trunemco also provides handling ease through its low use rate, caution signal word and compatibility with most seed treatments.
“As nematodes begin to develop resistance to many nematode-resistant varieties, growers may not realize they aren’t fully protected,” explained Tom Kroll, Nufarm seed treatment product and technical services manager.
Established in Australia more than 100 years ago, Nufarm is recognized as one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of crop protection and seed treatment in the world. As the US manufacturing landscape narrows, Nufarm is committed to bringing innovation and choice to seed companies, distributors, retailers and the growers they serve.
