Soybean Seed Treatments

Soybeans should have a “seed treatment” applied similar to our current seed corn treatments.

Value of a soybean seed treatment

  • Higher stand counts.
  • Reduced or controlled early season insect feeding—possible virus control.
  • Higher yield potentials

 Soybean seed treatment should include materials that provide for

  • Early season insect elimination.
  • Early season pathogen reduction.
  • Early season disease control.

You might want to order the last 5% to 10% of your soybean seed order to be non-treated so this seed can be returned.
