Protect Your Field from Sudden Death Syndrome

Product Information

The results are clear ILeVO® leads to greater soybean yields.

ILeVO seed treatment is the only product that offers effective protection against soybean SDS and nematodes in the seed zone throughout the critical growing period.

  • 2016 SDS university trials across 7 locations with 3 varieties per location reported an average yield increase of 4.7 bu./A vs. fungicide/insecticide base, with yield increases greater in fields with higher levels of disease infestation.
  • 296 side-by-side demo trials reported an average yield increase of 3 bu./A with a positive yield response at 74% of locations.

ILeVO protects against early-season infection, so your plants will be healthier and perform better, even in the absence of foliar SDS symptoms. Once the soilborne fungus causing SDS is present in a field, it does not go away and can be spread by soil movement to neighboring fields.

For the best in soybean protection, pair ILeVO with Poncho®/VOTiVO® for unmatched control of the SDS fungus, nematodes and insects.

Key Benefits

  • Effective protection against SDS and Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) – SDS and SCN are two of the top yield robbers in soybean production. ILeVO kills all nematode species in the seed zone.
  • Increased yields – trials show yields are 2-10 bushels per acre higher when ILeVO is used, depending on nematode pressure and SDS incidence or severity.
  • Early plant protection – because seeds are protected from early-season SDS infection, there’s no need to delay planting.
  • Increased plant performance – ILeVO has been proven to help produce stronger, healthier plants, even in the absence of foliar symptoms of SDS.
