Proven Potato Products

Broad-spectrum preventive and curative protection

Fontelis logo

Fontelis® fungicide is a balanced fungicide with residual, preventive, and post-infection activity for potatoes. Its powerful and consistent field performance on early-season, broad-spectrum disease control for black dot, rhizoctonia, early blight, powdery mildew, brown spot and botrytis protects your field. Use Fontelis at or near row closure during mid-season applications for white mold control.

Stops soil-borne diseases for improved root health

Bexfond logo

Protect the root zone and improve plant development in your potato crop with Bexfond® biological fungicide. Bexfond creates a bio-barrier that shields roots from harmful soil-borne pathogens like Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia and Fusarium, ultimately resulting in better root development, plant growth, and crop yield.

Broadleaf weeds and grass control

Matrix SG logo

Rapid work and residual control is what to expect when using Matrix® SG herbicide. It delivers long soil residual pre-emerge efficacy on henbit, marestail, pigweed, kochia, lambsquarters and barnyard grass with post emergent control of many grasses, chickweed, mustards, chickweed, and several nightshade species. MatrixSG has flexible tank mix compatibility and is safe for the crop providing multiple opportunities to deliver the outcomes you need.

Cost-effective nematode control

Vydate C-LV logo

“Carbamate kick” plant growth effect isn’t the only benefit of using Vydate® C-LV.  A fully-systemic insecticide/nematicide that provides protection against damaging nematodes, such as root knot and stubby root, as well as excellent control of foliar pests such as aphids, Colorado potato beetle and lygus. Mostly applied via chemigation in potato crops, Vydate CLV also provides excellent in-season flexibility for nematode protection and is one of the only products on the market capable of handling infestations throughout the complete growing season.

Quick, lasting control of destructive pests

Delegate WG logo

Take control of multiple pests at once with Delegate® WG insecticide, including Colorado potato beetle, potato psyllid, worms (loopers, armyworms) and thrips. As a member of the spinosyn class of chemistry (IRAC Group 5), Delegate WG controls pests like no other class of chemistry used in potatoes, providing both residual and knockdown via chemigation or foliar applications.

Win the battle against insects

Transform WG logo

Transform® WG insecticide uses a unique class of chemistry, Isoclast™ active, a group 4C member of the sulfoximine class of chemistry, to support farmers in the control of aphids, lygus bugs, leafhoppers, planthoppers, mealybugs, scale insects, and whiteflies. Transform WG is effective at low use rates and delivers excellent knockdown and residual control. Additionally, Transform WG has minimal impact on beneficial insects and predatory mites and fits into IPM programs. 

Plant parasitic nematode control increasing root and soil health

Salibro logo

Nematode feeding on potato roots reduces the vigor of the plant and causes blemishes on tubers. This can lead to a severe reduction in tuber quality and marketability. Salibro nematicide with Reklemel active offers quick and effective protection from plant parasitic nematodes such as root-knot and stubby root. This new and unique mode of action offers superior protection to crop yield and quality. without disrupting the healthy balance of beneficial organisms in the soil. Salibro also offers exceptionally high compatibility with soil health, including beneficial nematodes, beneficial soil fungi and soil bacteria – a key differentiator from other nematode control products on the market today.
