Vine killing, or desiccation, shouldn’t be overlooked. This is
the last step that contributes to tuber uniformity, skin set and
storage quality. Dense foliage, vine growth and late-season
weed development present growers with a less-effective
harvest and the threat of disease transmission. If you’re looking
for a fast-acting product to solve those problems, consider
Reglone® herbicide in your product line up. Reglone offers a
direct and simple solution to the efficacy issue and also aids
in reducing the spread of diseases, such as blight and other
viruses, by quickly burning down foliage and stems.
Harvest quality is a key factor in determining profit, and
growers need a high value product as well as yield. Reglone is
an essential tool to help growers like you plan potato harvest. It
provides skin set in 14 to 21 days, protecting tubers in storage
from moisture loss and reduces the potential for disease
transition to other tubers. And when using Reglone, adverse
weather becomes less of a worry since it works well in cool
weather and is rainfast within 30 minutes of application.
When it comes to burning down potato vines, you can count
on Reglone. You can also count on the resources provided
by Syngenta, including www.potatoes.farmassist.com. It
contains information on the Syngenta potato product portfolio
and other news, like weather, market news and resources.
Providing growers with tools that help produce a successful
crop is a priority at Syngenta, which is why they continue to
add valuable information – like their webinars – to FarmAssist.
Last year, Syngenta hosted webinars on potato desiccation
where a panel of experts discussed Reglone and the benefits
of using a desiccant. Those webinars are on FarmAssist for
your reference under “Education.”
