Seed treatments are now packed full of protection, and the beefed-up Acceleron for soybeans from Monsanto is no exception. Acceleron for soybeans includes fungicides, an insecticide and a plant health agent. For soybeans, Acceleron’s fungicides are pyraclostrobin and metalaxyl to provide control of seedborne and soilborne diseases, including those caused by Pythium, Fusarium, Phytophthora and Rhizoctonia. The product contains the insecticide imidacloprid for protection against early season insect pests, including aphids and bean leaf beetles. This product and Acceleron for corn were widely used in 2010.
