Clariva Elite Beans -Seed Treatment |Syngenta

Season-Long SCN Management

Protecting against soybean cyst nematode (SCN) just got easier with Clariva® Elite Beans seed treatment. Clariva Elite Beans is an easy-to-handle premix of Clariva pn nematicide and CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® seed treatment and is the next generation seed treatment to Clariva Complete Beans*. Unlike any other seed-applied soybean seed treatment on the market, Clariva Elite Beans provides season-long activity against SCN.
Recent Iowa State University research supports the addition of nematicide seed treatments to SCN management plans. More than 95% of SCN-resistant varieties contain the genetic source PI88788. Because SCN has adapted to this resistance, nematologists recommend using an integrated pest management program to better manage SCN. By combining cultural practices, such as non-host crop rotation, with proven seed treatments, you can extend the life of SCN-resistant seed genetics.


What Sets Clariva Elite Beans Apart?

  • Offers the only season-long, lethal SCN activity
  • Delivers an average yield increase of 2.7 bu/A compared to an insecticide/fungicide seed treatment alone; in some fields, yield increases of more than 10 bu/A have been observed
  • Enhances the performance of SCN-resistant seed varieties that are facing overuse
  • Provides superior protection against damaging insects and diseases during the critical early-growth stage
  • Optimizes the RootingPower of Vibrance and the Cruiser® Vigor Effect for better emergence, stand, stress tolerance and overall performance
  • Improves treater efficiency with little to no thickening with an enhanced formulation 
  • Reduces impact from sudden death syndrome (SDS) and other SCN-related diseases
    - Can be combined with Mertect® 340-F fungicide for increased activity against SDS

“With Clariva Elite Beans seed treatment* we don’t have nearly as much risk planting early in cold weather. We’ve seen that the plants get off to a better start. The root mass is stronger. We haven’t had the need to replant. That saves a lot of money and a lot of time.”

“SCN is building resistance to some of the traits in soybeans, so we’ve had to move on to other things to help us control the pressure. We’ve been very pleased with the results from Clariva Elite Beans seed treatment*. We’ve picked up several bushels an acre by switching to Clariva Elite Beans.”


*This grower used seed treated with Clariva Complete Beans, a combination of the separate products found in the Clariva Elite Beans premix.

Plant Vigor

Clariva Elite Beans** (right) protects vulnerable seedlings during their critical early-growth stages. SCN can stunt plant development as seen in the plants treated with Acceleron® + ILeVO® seed treatment (middle) and the untreated check (left). Source: Syngenta trials, 2017, Stanton, MN

Root Health

Clariva Elite Beans** (right) is powered by the unique RootingPower of Vibrance fungicide and the Cruiser Vigor Effect. These two components help optimize soybean yields when compared to Pioneer Premium Seed Treatment® (second from right) and a generic blend (second from left). SCN can damage the roots, making it easier for other diseases to further infect the seedlings, as seen in the untreated check (left). Source: Syngenta trials, 2017, Kinston, NC.

Poor stand and emergence are two above-ground symptoms of an SCN infestation in fields. As seen in the photo, plants treated with Clariva Elite Beans** (left) have more even emergence and plant vigor than the untreated check (right).

Plant Stand

Clariva Elite Beans** is the only seed-applied nematicide premix with lethal, season-long SCN activity. SCN infestations can affect plant stand, as seen in the photo of the untreated check (left).

Stress Tolerance

Greater root mass helps provide better stress tolerance throughout the season. Early-season root loss is often never recovered, leading to smaller root mass with lower stress tolerance. In-house trials at Syngenta show the root difference between Clariva Elite Beans** (left) and Acceleron® + ILeVO® seed treatment (right). Source: Syngenta trials, 2017, Stanton, MN.

Root Health

Healthy root systems are crucial for plants to reach full yield potential. Early-season root loss is often never replaced, leaving reduced root mass season long, limiting your yield potential. As seen in the photo, plants treated with Clariva Elite Beans** (left) have more vigorous root systems than the untreated check (right).
