*The increase in yield is based on a comparisons against an SPD at 16 trials sites drilled after mid-October 2017. The value has been calculated before the additional average £10/ha VIBRANCE® Duo cost over an SPD has been applied. Costs are based on a grain price of £172.50 per tonne.

Approved for use in winter wheat, winter triticale, winter rye and spring oats, VIBRANCE® DUO is the first UK seed treatment to use Syngenta's all new SDHI fungicide, sedaxane. Sedaxane not only provides outstanding control of key establishment diseases, but trials have also shown that it can substantially boost early root development. By combining sedaxane with fludioxonil VIBRANCE® DUO brings a whole new perspective to crop establishment success.
Improved speed of emergence
If you're delaying drilling for improved black-grass control, even into November, VIBRANCE® DUO can help get your crop up and away to allow optimal establishment. Have a look at this video and see the improvement that VIBRANCE® DUO can bring against a triazole-based seed treatment.
Better establishment through broad spectrum disease control
While fludioxonil is noted against Fusarium and Microdochium, sedaxane adds even more power against Microdochium, packing a double punch against the UK's major establishment risk. These are in addition to combined activity against bunt and loose smut. Plus, sedaxane brings new powerful activity against Rhizoctonia.
Better roots for scavenging for moisture, nutrient uptake and resilience
Combined with excellent disease control and crop safety, the added benefit of enhanced root growth enables the crop to establish closer to its full genetic potential. Research at Nottingham University using a three-way sedaxane mixture in spring wheat showed extra root mass remained visible at GS55, even in the absence of disease.
