Further reason to use Betanal maxxPro in 2016

The particularly cold and wet March and April experienced this year has  resulted in the majority of drilling being later than it has been for many years across a range of soil types. As it eventually warms up this will mean that the beet will be growing more quickly than they have for many years as herbicides are being applied. To make the most of this rapid growth and get off to the best possible start it is important to select a herbicide that is kind to the crop to minimise any crop check. It is also important to make sure a highly effective herbicide is used to control weeds from the start of the programme.
