Knowing your canola crop is protected from insects and diseases is a peace of mind that comes with no price. Syngenta’s programs give you just that — confidence in your crop.
Helix® Saltro® and Fortenza® Advanced are seed treatment options from Syngenta. Helix Saltro is a foundation seed treatment with the protection you know and trust from Helix Vibrance®. It controls flea beetles, seed-borne blackleg, Alternaria, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Pythium, and seedling disease complex. Helix Saltro is also unique as it is a fungicidal seed treatment for protection from early season airborne blackleg. Fortenza Advanced is an enhanced, add-on seed treatment providing you industry-leading flea beetle protection with the added benefit of cutworm control.
When you use Helix Saltro or Fortenza Advanced, you’re backed by Syngenta’s Canola Seedcare™ Performance Package. That means if you use either treatment according to its respective label, but you still need to spray for insects, Syngenta will reimburse you for a single application of insecticide. For flea beetles, that insecticide is Decis® or Pounce® 385 EC. For cutworms, it’s Pounce 385 EC.

Growers using the Bayer products BUTEO® start and Prosper® EverGol® may be eligible for the BUTEO start Assurance Program. If you experience flea beetle feeding damage of more than 25% on your canola treated with BUTEO start and Prosper EverGol seed treatments at or before the four-leaf stage, you could be eligible for up to a 100% rebate on Decis insecticide.
