Sulfosulfuron for Polish potatoes

SULFOSULFURON, the active ingredient in Monsantos new couch and brome product for wheat (Arable Nov 19), is available as a couch and cleavers product for potatoes in Poland. Applied post-emergence, control of both weeds is claimed to be over 90%, with yield increases over rimsulfuron (Titus) treated plots reported. It is not clear if a UK launch is planned.
