protect your soybean field from sudden death syndrome and nematodes

Product Information

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

ILeVO seed treatment is the only product that offers effective protection against Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) and nematodes in the seed zone, resulting in healthier plants and higher yield potential.

  • In 6 years of testing with 337 comparisons, ILeVO provides an average yield increase of 4.7 bu./A vs fungicide/insecticide base with a positive yield response 84% of the time. The yield advantage from ILeVO increases with higher levels of foliar SDS symptoms.

SDS continues to be a major issue in soybean-growing regions. 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.

ILeVO is the only product that protects against both the root rot and foliar phases of SDS, making it the most complete SDS protection available on the market. In fields that have been infected with SDS, ILeVO has been shown to be effective in helping minimize the impact of the disease on yield loss.

Nematodes cause significant yield loss every year across all soybean-producing geographies. Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) causes more yield loss in soybeans than any other pest. Complementing nematode-resistant soybeans with ILeVO adds another level of protection that results in reduced nematode damage and increased yield potential.

ILeVO protects against key pests in opposing weather conditions. While nematode damage increases in hot, dry conditions, SDS thrives in cool, wet conditions. With ILeVO, your soybean crop is protected against both.

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 provides broad-spectrum nematode protection 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 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 SDS symptoms by protecting against root rot from the fungus that causes SDS.
