1.5L per 100 kg of seed

Application Method

Commercial Seed Treatment

Application Information

  • Helix Vibrance is available only in commercial seed treatment facilities and is sold on pre-treated seed
  • On-farm seed treatment is not permitted for canola

Use Restrictions

  • Treated seed must not be used for food, feed or for oil processing
  • Open transfer of the Vibrance component is permitted. Transfer of the Helix component must be in a closed system.  Closed mixing and treatment of Helix Vibrance is required.
  • All bags containing treated seed for sale or use in Canada must be labeled or tagged as follows: “This seed has been treated with the insecticide, thiamethoxam and fungicides, difenoconazole, metalaxyl-M and S-isomer, fludioxonil and sedaxane.  Wear coveralls over a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, socks, shoes, and chemical-resistant gloves when handling treated seeds, planting, and during maintenance, clean-up, and repair. In addition, wear a properly fit-tested NIOSH-approved dust mask rated N95 or higher when handling treated seeds (includes loading and unloading). Use only closed-cab planting equipment. Gloves and a dust mask do not need to be worn when inside the closed cab. Do not use for food, feed or oil processing. Store away from food and feed.

This product contains a pigment that will adequately colour the treated seed.  However, users are responsible for ensuring that the treated seed, when dried and ready for bagging, has an unnatural colour. If the pigment contained in the formulation does not colour the seed adequately, additional colourant must be added to the mixture while treating the seed. Follow instructions on the colourant package for mixing. Regulations pertaining to colouration of treated seed enforced under the “Seeds Act” must be strictly adhered to when using this product.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 4 insecticide; Group 3, Group 4, Group 7 and Group 12 fungicides

Mode of Action

The active ingredient in Vibrance is sedaxane, a mode of action which: 

  • Defends roots against certain diseases carried in soil and air as well as against seed infection with best in class Rhizoctonia activity;
  • Combines systemic movement with ideal soil mobility;
  • Provides long-lasting protection of the entire root system through all critical crop development stages and under a wide range of environmental conditions;
  • Belongs to the Pyrazole-Carboxamide class of chemistry – a new succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) class of fungicides.
    • Metalaxyl m = Group 4 = phenylamide – targets RNA polymerase I
    • Fludioxonil = Group 12 = phenylpyrroles – affects signal transduction
    • Sedaxane = Group 7 = succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor – affects respiration
    • Difenoconazole = Group 3 = triazole – inhibits sterol biosynthesis
    • Thiamethoxam = Group 4A = neonicotinoid – affects nerve action

Resistance Management

For resistance management, Helix Vibrance contains a Group 4 insecticide and Groups 3, 4, 7 and 12 fungicides. Any insect or fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Helix Vibrance and other Group 4 insecticides or Groups 3, 4, 7 and 12 fungicides.  A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these insecticides and fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide and fungicide resistance:

Where possible, rotate the use of Helix Vibrance or other Group 4 insecticides and Groups 3, 4, 7 and 12 fungicides with different groups that control the same insects or pathogens.

Insecticide and fungicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

Monitor treated insect and fungal populations for resistance development.

Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pests problems in your area.
