The US Environmental Protection Agency announced on November 15th the registration for commercial use of Kabina 40SC as a seed treatment of sugarbeet seed for protection against seedling Rhizoctonia infestation.  Sugarbeet growers will directly benefit from this seed treatment as Kabina offers seedling protection against Rhizoctonia the first six weeks after planting. BetaShield, Betaseed’s premier line of seed treatment and enhancement products, offers Kabina on all seed sold in US markets.
