Seed treatments also offer great convenience to the farmer as these treatments are normally more complete and easy-to-apply. This presentation will review a number of new active ingredients that have come into the market recently or that will soon appear—offering control of new pest targets or alternative actives and rotation partners for currently controlled pests.
