guelph, ont. / Bayer CropScience is introducing Titan Emesto, a complete liquid insecticide and fungicide potato seed-piece treatment for protection against major insects and diseases. Titan Emesto features a new coloured formulation to ensure growers can uniformly and safely apply it to potato seed-pieces to maximize pest control and yield potential. “The product provides excellent fusarium protection, superior seed-borne rhizoctonia control, good activity on silver scurf and unsurpassed insect control,” a company release says.
“Titan Emesto is a co-pak of Titan, the broadest-spectrum potato seed-piece insecticide, and Emesto Silver, a new potato seed-piece fungicide with two new modes of action protecting against major diseases,” says David Kikkert, portfolio manager, horticulture, Bayer CropScience. “Growers will benefit from the outstanding protection provided by Titan Emesto against fusarium tuber rot including current resistant strains, seed-borne rhizoctonia, silver scurf, Colorado potato beetle, leafhopper, aphids and flea beetle, and reduces the damage caused by wireworms.”
Low dose rate
“To achieve optimal disease and insect control, growers must ensure good uniform coverage of the potato seed-piece,” says Andrew Dornan, field development rep, Eastern Canada, Bayer CropScience. “Our coloured formulation is a unique feature making it easy for growers to see and experience the difference Titan Emesto makes.”
