Industry-Leading Control from Deltapine
Why Growers Should Expect and Reject Nematode Pressure
Deltapine® cotton offers the strongest nematode protection on the market, thanks to new generations of Nematode Resistant (NR) varieties and the access to new NemaStrike™ Technology, an innovative nematicide by Acceleron® Seed Applied Solutions.
Root knot nematodes and other nematode species feed on the roots of cotton plants, reducing plants’ ability to absorb water and nutrients, and exposing vulnerable root systems to secondary infections. And the damage is often invisible, while above-ground symptoms — if they appear — are misdiagnosed as nutrient deficiency, disease, or drought.
Nematode pressure exists in a range of soil types across the Cotton Belt and robs growers of up to 10.7* percent of yields. Learn how Deltapine helps growers protect their seed — inside and out.
Broad-Spectrum Seed Treatment Technology
NemaStrike Technology by Acceleron® Seed Applied Solutions provides broad-spectrum nematode control against multiple nematode species including — but not limited to — RKN, Lance & Reniform.
NemaStrike Technology is a nematicide that stays in the root zone for up to 75 days to protect crops as they grow. Plus, it has demonstrated consistent yield protection in hundreds of field trials, over three years of testing, in all soil types and levels of pressure. Contact your dealer for more information.

Don’t Let Nematode Damage Catch You By Surprise
The only reliable method for assessing nematode pressure is soil sampling, and management techniques like crop rotation aren’t enough to control most species effectively.
