To maximise the quality-enhancing boost of tzt technology and disease control, always use Rudis at the full rate. For control of leek rust in a curative situation or if the crop is very waxy, mixing with an approved sticker/wetter adjuvant may enhance the activity of Rudis.
Important things to remember
Always use full rates to achieve best control levels and good resistance management practice.
Using Rudis as part of a programme
An effective programme has three stages:
Clean start: ensure the best start possible with a clean crop. If any disease has already crept in, use a curative product to clean up. Otherwise maximise the clean leaf with strobilurin-based chemistry for protectant activity and greening/physiological benefits.
Build and protect quality: as the crop moves onto the second spray and beyond, supporting plant growth and development is the priority. Alternating chemistry is essential as part of good resistance management practice.
Secure quality: later in the season maintaining quality and yield until harvest needs attention so that marketable yield and profits can be fully realised. Choosing the right products to prolong healthy appearance and react to late season infections is vital.
Remember to follow FRAC guidelines, especially for strobilurins (QoI) based formulations where only up to 50% of the programme may be made up of these.
