The Problem

Parasitic nematodes are microscopic roundworms that live in the soil and contribute to over 10% of yield loss experienced in corn, soybean, and cotton production in the United States. Plant parasitic nematodes pierce plant roots, facilitating bacterial, fungal, and viral infections which can lead to poor plant performance.

The Solution

NemaStrikeTM Technology brings game changing technology to the market. There are three simple yet powerful reasons why NemaStrikeTM Technology is the premier choice for nematode control.

  • New chemistry with a novel mode of action (Tioxazafen).
  • Broad spectrum control of plant parasitic nematodes.
  • Longevity – stays in the root zone for up to 75 days of control.

NemaStrikeTM Technology’s innovative new technology, Tioxazafen is a disubstituted oxadiazole which represents a new class of nematicidal chemistry. Tioxazafen is a targeted protein, only affecting plant parasitic nematodes and has no cross activity. Nematodes must pierce the root for control, meaning non-plant parasitic nematodes are not affected.

This broad spectrum technology allows for control of nematodes such as but not limited to soybean cyst nematode (Figure 1), root knot (Figure 2), lesion, lance and reniform. NemaStrikeTM Technology, is unique providing broad spectrum control where competitors can only offer suppression of plant parasitic nematodes.

NemastrikeTM Technology offers a efficacy timeline second to none. Its low water solubility formulation stays active in the root zone for up to 75 days. This allows for nematode control through the 2nd generation.

Results With NemaStrikeTM Technology

NemaStrikeTM Technology usage has a proven track record of reclaiming yield potential. Three years of data show a yield protection performance advantage of 7 bu/acre in corn, 3 bu/acre in soybean, and 80 lbs lint/acre over the competitive standard treatment.

Protecting roots is a key component to farmer success and achieving top end yield goals. Roots allow for the transfer of nutrients and water to the plant from the soil as well as providing a secure anchor to the ground. Yield robbing nematodes are no match for NemaStrikeTM Technology, giving farmers peace of mind that their fields and roots are protected.
