Disease Management

Australian potato crops are susceptible to a variety of diseases that can significantly impact on yield and quality. To prevent and minimise losses, intervention is often necessary and growers need to be equipped with the latest knowledge and techniques.

Syngenta provides growers with a number of effective solutions to help manage diseases in-furrow and during storage.  Between Amistar and Ridomil Gold, Syngenta has got your crop covered when it comes to disease protection.

Weed Control in potatoes

The benefits of effective weed control in potato crops are many, including better use of available nutrients by the crop, resulting in increased yields and profits. It is important to remember that the adoption and implementation of effective, long term, weed control strategies that have an integrated and planned approach and do not rely solely on the use of herbicides to control weeds will give the best crop results.

Desiccation and post-harvest

Desiccation of potato vines prevents late blight fungus on the vines from infecting the tubers, thus removing a potent cause of rot and waste in storage.
