You said it – prevent is the key word here! Many growers find
themselves searching for a late blight remedy during the
growing season. If you’re seeing light to dark green, circular to
irregular-shaped water-soaked spots – late blight is beginning
to infest your potato field. Damp weather is conducive to the
disease and a white ‘downy mildew’ will become present on
the leaf. It’s best to take preventive measures and treat your
crop before infection occurs.
Consider using Revus Top® fungicide from Syngenta. It
contains two highly active ingredients, mandipropamid and
difenoconazole, and has proven excellence in fighting many
diseases, including late blight. Plus, Revus Top is equipped
with LOK + FLO™ technology, and when teamed up with the
two active ingredients, provides unwavering disease control
even in adverse weather conditions. Revus Top absorbs easily
into the leaf and offers protection before the onset of disease.
For the best protection, rotate Revus Top with another fungicide
containing a different mode of action, such as Quadris®,
Quadris Opti®, Bravo Weather Stik® or Omega® fungicides.
