Common disease and pest found on potato crop
Late blight (Phytophthora infestans)
Known as the most devastating disease of potatoes, late blight can completely destroy the crop and affect potato tubers and therefore brings significant economic loss for growers.
Zampro®is recommended to prevent late blight on potato, to be used as the first spray on the crop which helps to provide a strong start for maximum crop quality hence relieves growers of the worry about the disease.
Thrips cause direct damage by feeding on the potato leaves and sucking out their contents.
Use Kotetsu®, a unique pro-insecticide that has a novel mode of action that interferes with respiration by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation. It is effective against potato thrips that are resistant to organophosphates, carbamates, pyrethroids and chitin-synthesis inhibitors.
