UK: Bayer to increase quantities of its potato herbicide ‘Artist’

Bayer is to increase the quantities of its potato herbicide Artist (flufenacet + metribuzin) this season in response to greater industry demand. The demand arises from an increasing frustration in the lack of effective options for tackling harder-to-control weeds, such as annual meadow grass (AMG) and cleavers. A situation compounded by tightening restrictions on products, such as linuron, previously seen as offering useful pre-emergence control. Artist, with its co-formulation of flufenacet and metribuzin not only provides effective control of these difficult weeds, but also offers long-lasting residual control and good crop safety. Bayer root crop product manager, Edward Hagues said the interest in Artist has been rising for several years.
