Syngenta launches seed treatment nematicide

BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Syngenta launched CLARIVA, a proprietary seed treatment nematicide based on the Pasteuria technology acquired in 2012. CLARIVA consists of naturally occurring soil bacteria with a unique, direct mode of action on nematodes - microscopic worm-shaped soil organisms, which cause significant damage to all major agricultural crops.

“Soybean growers in particular have long been searching for additional tools to manage the widespread cyst nematode problem, which in the US alone causes more than a billion dollars of annual yield losses. CLARIVA will take nematode control to a new level and reinforce our global leadership in seed treatment innovation,” said John Atkin, Chief Operating Officer, Syngenta.
