Strobs for oats

SYNGENTA strobilurin fungicides Acanto (picoxystrobin) and Amistar (azoxystrobin) are now approved for use on winter and spring oats.

Diseases covered on the labels for both products include crown rust and powdery mildew.

In trials, a reduced rate, two-spray programme of Acanto boosted yield by 1.5t/ha over untreated. &#42
