ILEVO® Seed Treatment


The proven winner against both SCN and SDS


SCN is a widespread pest threatening soybean yield potentials across the Midwest. See the sampling results in your state.



Don’t let weather threaten up to 30 percent of your yields. Soybean cyst nematode damage increases in hot, dry conditions, while SDS thrives in cool, wet conditions. ILEVO seed treatment keeps your soybean crop protected against the unpredictability of each season.
