Cambridge, 19 June 2012
Growers will have the chance to compare SDHI fungicides in wheat at risk from high levels of disease at each of Bayer CropScience’s demonstration days, which are taking place across the country in June and July.
Trials have been set up at each site to allow growers to see for themselves the performance of Bayer’s new SDHI wheat fungicide, Aviator235Xpro (bixafen + prothioconazole), and compare it with other disease control programmes.
This season has been a true test of the new fungicide’s disease control abilities, says Mike Abram, the firm’s PR & Communications manager. “This will be a brilliant opportunity for growers to see how Aviator235Xpro performs in a high pressure disease situation, and how it compares with other products applied in commercially relevant programmes.”
The demo days will also give growers the chance to discuss with members of the Bayer team other crop production issues, such as how to combat increasing grass weed resistance and how Bayer can help growers avoid barley yellow dwarf virus problems.
Dates and venues for the demos are as follows:
Refreshments and either a hog roast or barbeque are available at each event, which also qualify for BASIS and NRoSO professional development points.
