Seed treatments help to protect sugar beet crops in order to maintain plant populations and yield potential. CRUISER FORCE treated sugar beet seed combines two highly reliable actives to prevent damage from soil pests and foliar aphid attacks.

When it comes to the benefit of fungicide applications, the BBRO 2106 Sugar Beet Reference Book states that ‘on a typical crop harvested in November the first spray provides a 6% yield increase, on average. The second spray provides an additional 7% (a 13% increase from a two-spray programme at 2016 beet price of £20.30 would provide an increased revenue of £185/ha based on a 70t/ha crop).’

ARMURE is relatively new fungicide for UK sugar beet offering control of Powdery Mildew, Rust, Ramularia and Cercospora.
