SyngentaGreensboro, N.C.-based Syngenta and Incotec, which has an office in Salinas, Calif., have teamed to offer dry bulb organic onion seed treated to control maggots.

Incotec, through its wholly owned AgriCoat LLC, will apply Syngenta's FarMore O

100 seed treatment, according to a news release.

The seed treatment targets onion maggots and seed corn maggots, which are soilborne pests.


100 contains the active ingredient spinosad, which has been listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute. The seed treatment also is National Organic Program—NOP—compliant.

Spinosad is derived from the fermentation of the naturally occurring soil organism, Saccharopolyspora spinosa.
