Sprout control: Practical solutions for getting the best out of ethylene and mint oil

Controlling potato sprouting with ethylene and mint oil is requiring a more careful approach to store management, as most potato storage managers know very well after the use of CIPC was banned in the UK.

Interested parties are cordially invited to join AHDB Potatoes’ Sutton Bridge team in the UK on the 9th of March for a webinar to hear about the latest research and top tips on how to get the best out of ethylene and mint oil sprout suppressants.

This webinar will cover:

– Optimising application rates and timings
– Store closure and CO2 levels
– Improving airflow and other store environment measures
– Making ethylene and mint oil work for long-term storage

If you can?t make it for the live webinar, you can still register to receive a recording and links to resources after the event. Cost: Free.
