Sugar Beet

Sugar beet is one of the most responsive crops to good agronomy. And within its agronomy, crop protection is a major contributor to yield and profit. We at Bayer are focused on providing solutions to all the crop protection issues you face in growing sugar beet, be it weed competition, pest damage or disease threats.

Challenge to get the crop established

Sugar beet drilling is commencing, and without any chemical protection from aphids transmitting virus yellows, the challenge is to get the crop established and through to 12 true leaves when the threat from virus yellows diminishes, as quickly as possible. Good weed control is a key part of that puzzle, as well as the need to drill into good conditions and seedbeds. This is the last year of use of desmedipham-containing herbicides, such as Betanal maxxPro, so it is worth considering whether the new weed control system in Conviso Smart can fit your farm needs.
