New stimulant rate

GROWTH stimulant Maxicrop Triple has new recommendations for use in potatoes. Growers with low tuber setting varieties should use the new rate 10 days before, and again at, tuber initiation. Later sprays mixed with blight fungicides then promote bulking.

On prolific varieties the first two sprays are replaced by little-and-often use later to encourage bulking. Use at the end of the season can delay senescence and extend bulking, Maxicrop adds. &#42
