The Billion Dollar Pest

Coping with Smut

Of all diseases that effect cereals, smut can be the most devastating—especially since affected crops cannot be treated after seeds are planted. Proceed™ seed treatment offers advanced broad-spectrum control against smut for wheat and barley crops, keeping plants safe from planting through harvest.


The global leader in seed treatments, Crop Science delivers the latest seed-applied solutions to market, helping growers maximize their seed investment and improve per-acre profits. These seed treatments protect plants both above and below the ground, starting early in the season and continuing through harvest. They offer advanced protection against nematodes, as well as seed and seedling diseases, increasing crop vigor, stands and yields—and that affects the bottom line.
