Advice

Do you need specific advice about seed rates, fertilisers or agronomy? Ask your local supplier or Meijer contact.

  • Do not neglect blight program because of Acoustic’s strong blight resistance, especially late in season where tubers may be affected. Best approach is to consider Acoustic’s resistance as a useful ‘safety net’ in high pressure seasons or where conditions don’t allow for regular applications.
  • Susceptible to Fusarium dry rots.
  • Sensitive to Sencorex (Metribuzin) when applied post-emergence.
  • Do not cultivate on common scab prone soils.
