Syngenta Incotec:

First seed treatment insecticide technology for dry bulb organic onions

Syngenta and INCOTEC, through its wholly-owned company AgriCoat, LLC., announce the availability of dry bulb organic onion seed treated with FarMore OI100 seed treatment insecticide technology using AgriCoat organic seed coating technologies.

“The exclusive combination of AgriCoat’s extensive portfolio of organic seed application products and our FarMore OI100 technology offers organic onion growers assurance that their seed is protected from onion maggot and seed corn maggot from day one,” said Chad Shelton, Syngenta Seedcare brand asset lead.

Containing the active ingredient spinosad, an Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) certified biological insecticide, FarMore OI100 technology protects the seed from planting through early stand establishment to provide a good start to the season and a strong foundation for maximum yield. Spinosad is biologically derived from the fermentation of Saccharopolyspora spinosa, a naturally occurring soil organism.

“This unique seed treatment will provide another valuable tool for organic growers to enhance yields and improve the quality of organic onions,” said Brad Kortsen, INCOTEC sales and marketing manager.

FarMore OI100 technology is National Organic Program (NOP) compliant and has received organic certification from Monterey County Certified Organic (MCCO).
