Flexible drift retardant designed for use with potato blight fungicides said to reduce drift and maximise coverage

A flexible drift retardant, specifically designed for use with blight fungicides, could play an important role in keeping potatoes disease free this spring, according to adjuvant and biostimulant experts, Interagro.

Keeping late blight out of potatoes is a season long campaign for growers and one that seems to be getting tougher as the years go by. With resistance to fluazinam and a regular shift in blight populations, a robust resistance management strategy which improves coverage is essential to safeguard crops and chemistry, believes Stuart Sutherland, technical manager at Interagro.
