Nematodes live underground and can be difficult to manage or even identify which is a serious issue in crop production. Potatoes are negatively impacted directly by nematodes feeding on roots and tubers and indirectly through transmission of diseases.

Bayer V+M Solution offers growers a cost-effective, convenient solution for nematode management.

Dual-Action Protection


V+M Solution is a nematode management program that combines the wide-spectrum nematicidal activity of both Velum® Prime and Velum® Rise with the sustained in-season nematode protection of Movento® to guard against nematodes.

Both Velum and Movento are easy to handle, can be integrated with existing in-season crop management systems and offer the additional benefits of disease and insect management.

Additionally, V+M Solution products are not restricted-use, do not require buffer zones and require minimal PPE. The V+M Solution provides nematode protection to maximize yield potential, crop quality and profit potential.

Velum Rise Advantages

  • Defends against key soil-borne diseases like Rhizoctonia and black dot in potatoes.
  • Suppresses nematodes throughout the entire season for nematode protection.
  • Combines penflufen and fluopyram for powerful, wide-spectrum protection.
  • In-furrow application gives a strong start to the season.

Velum Rise potato fungicide is the newest member in a line of crop protection products designed to ensure your potatoes growth throughout their first 75 days when they are most vulnerable to pests and disease. Check out the full portfolio to see how you can stack your defenses for a strong season.

Velum Prime Advantages

  • More marketable yield
  • Suppresses certain stem and foliar diseases (Early blight, White mold)
  • Low use rates
  • Favorable safety and toxicological profile

The early-season management Velum Prime provides has been shown to protect root health and to help establish the crop. These benefits will provide growers with the confidence that they are increasing their potential return on investment and maximizing their yield potential with Velum Prime.

Movento Advantages

  • Improves potato yield and quality
  • Two-way systemic movement allows for foliar application to protect roots
  • Inhibits juvenile development of nematodes
  • Controls other foliar pets such as aphids, psyllids, and suppresses mites
  • Convenient, in-season tool for nematode management

Movento provides protection from nematodes through convenient in-season applications that improve crop quality and increase potential return on investment.

Trial results from Velum Rise

Bar graph of Velum Rise seed treatment results.

Increase of 24% in marketable yield when using Velum® Rise nematode protectant with Emesto® Silver seed treatment when compared to not-inoculated control.

*Trials by Bayer CropScience and Atlantic Agritech conducted over two years (2022 and 2021) and four sites. All treatments inoculated with Rhizoctonia solani. Emesto® Silver (0.31 fl. Oz per 100 lbs of seed) was applied as seed piece treatment and Velum® Rise (13 fl. oz/A) was applied in-furrow at the time of planting.

Velum® Rise potato fungicide can provide up to $658/A more revenue than untreated control, based on multiple trials.

*Velum® Rise fungicide/nematicide can provide +51 cwt/A or 12.4% more in yield compared to untreated control. Using 2022 U.S. average price per CWT ($12.90) according to USDA NASS National Statistics for Potatoes, the yield impact of Velum® Rise can increase profits up to approximately $657.90/A versus untreated control.


Velum Rise stem stolon canker trial photos vs. UTC.

Velum® Rise fungicide/nematicide decreases stem and stolon canker incidence by 49%.

Tested across four trials, Velum® Rise proved to reduced incidence of stem and stolon canker, a common side effect of Rhizoctonia in potatoes, by 49%.

Potato tubers with and without black scurf.

Velum® Rise fungicide/nematicide alone decreases potato tuber black scurf by 60%.

When paired with Emesto Silver seed-piece treatment, Velum® Rise has shown it can reduced potato tuber black scurf, a side effect of Rhizoctonia solani in potatoes, by 80%.

Velum Rise emergence trial photos vs. UTC.

Velum® Rise fungicide/nematicide can help achieve 2x the emergence.
