Meristem Crop Performance has received EPA approval for a new formulation of METALAXYL ST fungicide for use in their BIO-CAPSULE TECHNOLOGY™ delivery system. This innovative system aims to provide soybean farmers with a more effective seed protection solution by eliminating the need for traditional liquids and seed treaters.

The combination of METALAXYL ST with the biocontrol PREPHYTE ST offers multiple modes of action and improved seed protection against harmful soil-borne diseases. Research has shown that the BIO-CAPSULE system delivers 10 times the live microbes to the seed compared to conventional liquid seed treatments, making it a significant advancement in seed treatment technology.

Meristem Crop Performance’s Founder and CEO, Mitch Eviston, described METALAXYL ST as the “gold standard” systemic fungicide for controlling various diseases. The company plans to introduce the product in select markets through their REVLINE ® HOPPER THROTTLE™ brand, offering farmers a more convenient and efficient seed protection solution.

The use of polymers and colorants in traditional liquid seed treatments can decrease the efficacy of materials applied, whereas the BIO-CAPSULE system avoids this issue and ensures maximum protection for each seed. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the seed treatment industry and make liquid seed treatment obsolete.

Chris Thrasher, Meristem’s Director of Innovation and Product Management, emphasized the game-changing nature of the BIO-CAPSULE technology, especially in delivering multiple active ingredients to seeds in a viable and effective manner. This advancement opens up new possibilities for improving seed protection and optimizing crop yields.

Overall, the innovative BIO-CAPSULE TECHNOLOGY™ has the potential to transform the way farmers approach seed treatment and protection, offering a more efficient and sustainable solution for soybean growers. By harnessing the power of beneficial microbes and active ingredients, Meristem Crop Performance aims to help farmers achieve higher yields and reduce input costs, ultimately benefiting the agricultural industry as a whole.
