Crusade improves coverage in minutes, boosts blight control by 19%

on Wednesday, 28 June 2017.

Adjuvant Insight June 17

Spray coverage is one of the key factors of the blight control programme that needs to be improved to protect potato crops against the new, more aggressive blight genotypes 13_A2 and 6_A1. The new genotypes tend to produce sporangia earlier and in greater numbers. Any weak spots in haulm protection from poor coverage are likely to result in scattered infection across the crop which in turn moves the risk of tuber blight to the whole crop.

Boosts effectiveness of partner fungicides increasing blight control by average of 19% & yield by +2.2 t/ha

  • Reduces drift, delivering optimum dose to target
  • Improves coverage for full haulm protection
  • Improves rainfastness, maintaining tight spray intervals
  • Aids delivery of fungicide into leaves and stem
