Our product range, based on active ingredients such as mancozeb, chlorpyrifos, 1,3-dichloropropene and maleic hydrazide, has been developed to address many of the most commonly occurring threats to yield and profitability in UK potato production.
Use the options on the left of this page to find further information about the biology and control of potato blight, cutworm and potato cyst nematode and for advice about suppressing sprout production in stored potatoes and reducing the burden of volunteer potatoes in following crops.
Arable advisors are aware of following crop restrictions associated with arable herbicides. Herbicides used in grassland also have following crop restrictions, but it is less well known that there are restrictions on the use of manure and slurry from animals fed with grass treated with some herbicides.
Products containing active ingredients that have the potential to be found in manure and slurry have label warnings limiting the use of that manure and slurry. Aminopyralid-containing products, e.g. Forefront* and Pharaoh*, have such warning phrases.
Potato growers and livestock farmers may not be aware of these limitations.
