BASF Cotton Seed Treatment Packages

New for the 2021 growing season, BASF’s Prime and Core seed treatment packages give your cotton crop the protection it deserves. These two packages help you realize your full yield potential and include added protection with Copeo® nematicide. Our Prime seed treatment package harnesses the power of F500® fungicide and Xemium® fungicide to protect crops against key early-season seed and seedling diseases. With improved vigor and healthier plants, it defends against damage caused by early season insects and protects your cotton roots from economically significant nematodes. 


The Core seed treatment package is powered by F500 fungicide and provides growers with baseline protection from early-season diseases while also providing the proven protection of Copeo against nematodes. Contact your BASF representative to learn more on the protection you need from seed to harvest.
