Protect Your Potato Yields From Start to Finish

March 2, 2018

Where you start can make a big difference in how you finish. One such example is growing potatoes. Setting a strong foundation at the beginning of the season is a key element in finishing strong with high quality yields.

Rhizoctonia solani is a pathogen that is often present in soil or on seed tubers and can have a major impact on young plants. It causes diseases such as black scurf and stem canker. Wet and cold soils favor disease development, and infection can result in major damage underground. If fungal lesions expand too quickly in relation to plant growth, stolons and stems may be girdled and die.

This agronomic image shows a healthy potato protected by CruiserMaxx Vibrance Potato treatment, compared to an unhealthy, untreated potato.

CruiserMaxx® Vibrance® Potato insecticide/fungicide seed treatment helps growers start strong with insect and disease protection. It provides 3 industry-leading fungicides for Rhizoctonia, Helminthosporium and Fusarium protection plus an insecticide component to protect against key pests through the Cruiser Vigor Effect. CruiserMaxx Vibrance Potato helps enhance germination, increase vigor and improve stand establishment, while improving size and tuber distribution to maximize quality yields.
