Many people currently are asking how to collect nematode samples from strip trials of corn treated with new seed-treatment nematicide products. Avicta® Complete Corn and Votivo™ are the two products commonly being compared. Avicta® Complete Corn, which was widely available to corn producers for the first time in 2010, is a combination of the Avicta seed treatment nematicide (active ingredient abamectin), a seed treatment insecticide and three seed treatment fungicides. Votivo™ is a biological seed treatment containing the bacterium Bacillus firmus that will be available in 2011.
