Heads Up® is a biological seed treatment that brings a new mode of action for growers to get a head start against a variety of fungal and bacterial diseases in row and specialty crops. Used alone or in combination with other fungicide / insecticide seed treatments, Heads Up® brings additional, full-season protection to help position your plants to succeed against yield robbing disease pathogens.
Heads Up® Plant Protectant is nationally distributed in the United States and Canada and is the only EPA/PMRA registered seed treatment for suppression of both sudden death syndrome (fusarium virguliforme) and white mold (sclerotinia sclerotiorum) in soybeans.
With more than fifteen years of data, growers across the United States and Canada trust Heads Up® to complete a superior seed treatment program. When combined with other seed treatments and inoculants Heads Up® helps growers achieve stacked modes of action against the toughest diseases, putting them on the right track to achieving higher yields by suppressing soil borne disease and contributing to overall plant hardiness.
