Tips on using Nemathorin to control nematodes in spuds

British growers using Nemathorin for the first time this spring to control nematodes in potato crops are being urged to carefully follow the guidelines on its safe use, writes Richard Allison in a Farmers Weekly article.

The loss of Vydate (oxamyl) means potato growers have just two options for managing nematodes: Velum Prime which, according to the label, is effective against potato cyst nematodes (PCN), and Nemathorin (fosthiazate), which lists both PCN and free living nematodes on the label.
