Rhizoctonia is a serious issue for sugarbeet growers. According to Vive Crop Protection President Darren Anderson, AZteroid FC Fungicide is an azoxystrobin. “Azozystrobins are well known as the best way to control rhizoctonia for beet growers,” said Anderson. “There has never been a way to apply it with your starter fertilizer at planting. With our product, we can take advantage of this amazing chemistry and rhizoctonia control and the fertilizer at the same time.” The ability to mix this fungicide with fertilizer and crop protection products offers more flexibility, which is important to growers.
