Sugar beet is one of the crops most responsive 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.

Sugar beet crops function best with a clean canopy free of disease. Fungicides play a vital role in promoting this performance. By protecting the canopy from the damaging effects of disease plants can continue accumulating sugars for longer and are also more capable of withstanding the effects of drought. Bayer’s fungicide Escolta has been shown to increase yields through improved disease control.
Conviso One is the dedicated herbicide for weed control in Conviso Smart sugar beet varieties. Containing two highly effective acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibiting herbicides, Conviso One controls a range of grass- and broad-leaved weeds through contact and residual activity with only a single application.
Our patented Double-A technology optimises both the spectrum of weeds controlled and the contact effectiveness of Betanal maxxPro to ensure that it gives you outstanding weed control in sugar beet.
