Lumisena™ Fungicide Seed Treatment

The Most Advanced Seed-applied Technology to Control Phytophthora

Phytophthora is the number-one yield-robbing disease in soybeans. DuPont Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment uses a new class of chemistry and a new mode of action to protect your soybean plants. In multi-year trials, Lumisena™ seed treatment improved plant stands by more than 2,500 plants per acre under heavy pressure and increased yields 1.7 bushels per acre in the presence of Phytophthora versus the existing industry-standard seed treatment*. Lumisena™ controls Phytophthora at all life cycle stages of the disease, resulting is healthier plants and greater crop efficiency. Lumisena™ is the only seed-applied technology that offers protection against Phytophthora with preventative, curative and eradicative activity in soybeans.
