Attacks of Alternaria have already started to hit potato crops, at the same time as blight outbreaks have reached record levels for early season infection.
New Syngenta potato application trials have identified potential innovative design features that could further enhance consistent spray deposition through the crop canopy, as well as improved drift control to provide more spraying opportunities.
Potato crops have enjoyed extremely good growing conditions across most of the UK this season – providing there has been ample irrigation available and they have been effectively protected from the extended periods of extremely high blight pressure.
This Nemathorin Stewardship has been created to provide
growers and opertors with the necessary knowledge to make
safe and effective applications of Nemathorin.
