Nematodes: Nufarm Gains Multi-State Approvals for Trunemco Technology for Grains, Cotton

Soybeans infested with root knot nematodes.

Nufarm Americas Inc. announced today that Trunemco, its new seed-applied nematode management technology, has now been approved in 28 states.

Following EPA approval of Trunemco in May, state approvals already include several soybean, corn and cotton states impacted by nematodes. Among those: Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri and Texas. More states are pending and updates on new state registrations can be viewed here.

Nufarm-exclusive Trunemco is an anticipated new nematode management technology because of its ability to provide a leading level of protection and higher yield profiles in soybeans, cotton and corn. Trunemco will be available for crop year 2020 and is expected to help seed treatment programs achieve better nematode management efficacy and consistency, according to a company press release.

“As nematodes begin to develop resistance to many nematode-resistant varieties, growers may not realize they aren’t fully protected,” explained Tom Kroll, Nufarm seed treatment product and technical services manager.

Trunemco seed-applied treatment is a patented technology that primes plant physiology, activating the natural nematode barriers that optimize protection. Its biochemical and microbial activity provide a dual defense, inside and out, against nematode feeding and establishment. Trunemco protects against nematode damage while supporting root health and seedling vigor to help plants thrive, delivering higher yields, the company noted in the release.
