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 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.
A broad spectrum pyrethroid insecticide for the control of aphids, caterpillars and a range of other pests
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.
