Potato agronomy is changing. Every new season brings new challenges – from new disease strains and pest pressures, to the loss of active substances, and tightening specifications for quality. We at Bayer are focused on providing solutions to the crop protection challenges you may face in growing quality, profitable potato crops.

Preparing for the new season

There are few sights as rewarding as a well-established potato crop that has just reached canopy complete. But getting there takes a lot of planning and there are many challenges from nature and the weather on the way. We at Bayer can help, with the key issues of tuber treatment, tackling weed competition and building a sound foundation of blight protection to see the crop safely to canopy complete, and beyond.

Grower and agronomist reports suggest 2017 was a particularly bad year for tuber blight, with a widespread belief that it was most likely due to the arrival of a new blight strain, 37_A2 (also known as ‘Dark Green 37’). Found to have a reduced sensitivity to fluazinam, how growers protect crops from 37_A2 and its zoospores that are responsible for tuber blight will determine whether this season is more or less successful than last.
