Quality Fungicide Solutions in Crop Protection from Farmoz

Supplier News

Farmoz encourages resellers and growers of the crop industry to carefully watch their cereal crops for fungal diseases, such as Yellow Spot, Stripe Rust, Barley Leaf Rust and Net Blotch.  The wet spring and summer, from South Australia and through to southern Queensland, increases the chances of fungal disease outbreaks.

“After good rainfall, growers are planting big areas of wheat and barley.  So it is important to get on the front foot with fungal disease control early in the season,” says Andrew Horsfield, General Manager – Technical and Development, of Farmoz.

“Under the right conditions, fungal diseases can spread very rapidly, so resellers have the opportunity to assist their customers by encouraging them to check their crops and having the right fungicides available for keeping diseases at bay.”

Farmoz has a range of crop protection products to help counter these fungal diseases, with fungicides such as Farmoz’s Soprano (expoxiconazole), Orius (tebuconazole) and Bumper (propiconazole).
