Beck’s Escalate® with Nemasect® is an elite seed treatment comprised of 12 active ingredients that controls at least 16
different diseases, insects, and nematodes. That’s more than any competitor’s standard seed treatment package. New for
2021, we added a sixth fungicide for improved emergence and vigor under cold conditions.
Benefits of Nemasect™
With a 90% win rate versus standard treatment, Nemasect™ adds a second mode of action to Escalate to kill insects and nematodes, as well as protect and improve yield.** ** Nemasect delivers an additional 12.2 Bu./A. yield protection advantage in corn. Test results from two-year field trials at 50 locations (2016 and 2017) vs. competitive standard. Corn trials were conducted in nematode infested fields in NE, MN, MO, IA, IL, IN, OH and AL.
Seed Treatment Stewardship
Seed treatments provide farmers with an economical means of protecting seeds and seedlings against early-season insect pests and diseases. This results in stronger and more uniform stands, healthier plants and higher crop yields. It is essential that those who treat, handle, transport, and plant treated seeds manage them properly and in accordance with label instructions to minimize the risk of pesticide exposure to humans and the environment.
