Protective Arma

ADDING adjuvant Arma to autumn triazole sprays can boost phoma and light leaf spot control, says Richard Newman, technical director of adjuvant specialist Interagro.

In trials, crops have responded particularly well to the triazole fungicides, flusilazole and tebuconazole, with substantial increases over untreated rape where Arma was included in the fungicide mix.

Arma improves deposition, spreading and penetration of the spray and aids rainfastness, says Interagro.n
