What You Should Know

NEMATODES COST AN ESTIMATED 10.2% YIELD LOSS IN CORN.

Stealing Your Corn Yields

When parasitic nematodes infect the roots of your corn, they don't just damage the plant, they rob it of nutrients and water from the inside. Because of this, they cost an estimated 10.2% yield loss in corn.

NEMASTRIKE™ TECHNOLOGY STAYS IN THE ROOT ZONE FOR UP TO 75 DAYS.

Broad-Spectrum Control

There are numerous species of nematodes and it's often difficult to know which ones are in your field. The broad-spectrum control of NemaStrike™ Technology targets a wide range of parasitic nematodes. And thanks to its novel mode of action and low water solubility, it stays in the root for up to 75 days defending your corn.

NEMATODES ARE FOUND IN CORN FIELDS — IN ALL SOIL TYPES — ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

An Invisible And Underestimated Problem

The damage caused by nematodes often doesn't show above-ground signs. And when damage does present itself it's often mistaken as drought, malnutrition or disease. The truth is, any harm to roots can limit yield and lead to larger problems.

Common Practices Don't Always Work

Common management practices, including crop rotation, don't provide comprehensive nematode control. Some nematodes feed on multiple crops. So, even though soybeans might be a preferred host, certain nematode species can also thrive in corn.
