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 2017, DuPont™ Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment delivered a 1.0 bushel per acre advantage in 638 side-by-side field trials across the top 10 soybean producing U.S. states compared to the industry standard for Phytophthora. In multi-year trials, DuPont™ Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment improved plant stands by more than 2,500 plants per acre under heavy pressure.* DuPont™ Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment controls Phytophthora at all life cycle stages of the disease, resulting in healthier plants and greater crop efficiency. DuPont™ Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment is the only seed-applied technology that offers protection against Phytophthora with preventive, curative and eradicative activity in soybeans.
Soil Inoculated with Phytophthora Lumisena™ vs. Industry Standard Treatment
The benefits of DuPont Lumisena™ are clearly shown with two soybean plants grown in a growth nursery. This side-by-side evaluation of soybeans grown in cups, with a disc inoculated with Phytophthora two inches below the surface, shows the dramatic difference in root development and plant vigor under Phytophthora pressure.
Supporting a Community of Seed Treatment Research Teams Around the World
The DuPont Integrated Seed Science Center (DISSC) conducts rigorous testing and training for DuPont’s seed-applied technologies. DISSC evaluates recipes, product compatibility, plantability, application and seed safety for a predictive, positive experience for growers.

*Data is based on head-to-head comparisons between DuPont™ Lumisena™ fungicide seed treatment (0.568 fl oz/cwt) and metalaxyl (0.75 fl oz/cwt) in the top 10 soybean-producing states through Dec. 12, 2017. Plant stands increased 2,500 plants per acre under heavy Phytophthora pressure versus current FST/IST (including metalaxyl) standard treatment.
