 What to do?

  • Galmano® has proven foliar activity delaying the yellow rust infection cycle and making subsequent foliar treatments both more effective and easier to time
  • Once established in a crop, rust infections are much more difficult to eradicate often requiring higher rates or rust specific products and probably greater cost
  • Although not a label claim, a useful effect on brown rust has also often been seen in commercial conditions
  • For 2nd and continuous wheat crops Galmano will also reduce infection by take-all, increasing yield and quality
