GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, – Syngenta announced CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Potato insecticide/fungicide seed treatment is now available for purchase, following its registration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It contains Vibrance fungicide seed treatment, the latest addition to the Syngenta Seedcare potato portfolio.

Led by Vibrance RootingPower, the link between stronger roots and higher yield potential, CruiserMaxx Vibrance Potato combines the power of three industry-leading fungicides for Rhizoctonia, Helminthosporium and Fusarium protection. Additionally, Cruiser® insecticide seed treatment provides exceptional protection against key insects, including Colorado potato beetles, aphids, potato leaf hopper and potato psyllid. It also delivers the Cruiser Vigor Effect, an increased level of plant vigor and health beyond the standard plant response to an insecticide.

“Potato growers looking to start strong with the most comprehensive insect and disease protection available for their young crops while boosting their root health can rely on CruiserMaxx Vibrance Potato,” said Kris Pauna, Seedcare commercial product lead, Syngenta. “This combination will help potato growers enhance germination, increase vigor and improve stand establishment, while improving size and tuber distribution to maximize quality yields.”

CruiserMaxx Vibrance Potato aids in wound healing and suberization, and has excellent handling and application characteristics in all temperatures and treating conditions. It has low dust off without the need for additional polymers or additives.
