Sugarbeet growers will soon be spraying for cercospora leaf spot. “Farmers in the Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative area will start their spray program likely in the last week of June, which is right around the corner,” said Ken Deibert, technical service representative, BASF. “Cercospora recommendations have been tweaked. We’ve learned a lot over the years and the more preventative farmers can be in managing cercospora, the better success they’ll have at the end of the day.” BASF has a new fungicide called Provysol to help growers prevent cercospora. “There are a few components that make this fungicide different from others and we’re excited to have this product in the marketplace.” Hear the story.
