Bayer has become the general partner of Potato Russia 2021, held on August 6 in the Moscow region.
The large-scale open-air exhibition complex included a demonstration field, where more than 80 varieties of potatoes of European and Russian selection from 11 originators were presented. Bayer has taken it upon itself to protect all plantings from pests and diseases by developing an effective treatment scheme. The task was brilliantly completed, despite the fact that the weather conditions in the region were not developing in the most favorable way.
Commenting on the implemented experience, the company's specialists noted that today Bayer offers a wide range of modern solutions in the field of protecting potatoes and vegetables from economically significant harmful objects, and each agricultural enterprise can choose from this list the products that best meet its requirements.
As you know, the volume and quality of the crop largely depends on how and by what means the pre-planting treatment of tubers was carried out. Bayer offers two star products that are deservedly considered some of the best in the category.
Emesto Quantum®, KS - an innovative systemic-translaminar insect-fungicidal dressing agent to protect potatoes from gnawing and sucking pests (Colorado potato beetle, wireworm, scoopers, beetle larvae, aphids, etc.), as well as from diseases that persist with seeds and in the soil (all forms of manifestation of rhizoctoniasis , silver and common scab, fomoz, alternaria and rubber rot of potatoes).
Emesto Silver®, KS - systemic-translaminar fungicidal disinfectant for premium control of rhizoctonia (all forms), fusarium, silver scab, anthracnose, phomosis, rubber rot.
Both drugs contribute to the development of a secondary root system, an earlier laying of nodules; have a powerful stimulating effect on the plant.
Timely and competent protection of plantings from diseases is no less important when growing potatoes. Bayer's portfolio includes a large selection of fungicides, from which the company's experts especially highlight the means that ensure the control of the widest possible range of diseases.
An example of such a drug is Antracol® - contact fungicide that protects potatoes and vegetables from late blight, peronosporosis, alternaria, anthracnose. Due to the presence in the composition of Zn ++ in an accessible form, the drug stimulates the processes of biosynthesis in the plant. The use of this tool helps to increase the yield of crops and the quality of the final product.
The innovative systemic fungicide is also well known to many farmers. Infinito®, perfectly proven in the fight against all types of late blight.
Agronomists are also interested in a new drug in the line - Luna® Tranquility. Its main function is to control the widest range of fungal diseases in vegetable and fruit crops. Effective in the fight against Alternaria and nematode. Fungicide allows you to destroy the causative agents of storage rot during the growing season and before laying in storage, which makes it possible to increase the sales period of products.
The drug contains two innovative antibiotics at once: fluopyram and pyrimethanil. which prevents the development of resistance.
Insecticidal treatments occupy a significant place in modern schemes for protecting potatoes, since pests can cause significant damage to the crop at different stages of its development.
An effective "weapon" in the fight against the Colorado potato beetle, thrips, aphids and scoops is a combined systemic contact insecticide Proteus®.
One of the differences between this drug and its counterparts lies in its preparative form (oil dispersion), due to which the working solution, falling on the surface of the leaves during spraying, is evenly distributed over it.
Another insecticide from Bayer is Biscay® - also acts with a high speed (has a knockdown effect). It is a systemic drug designed to protect cereals and legumes, rapeseed and potatoes from the main pests. Low hazard to pollinating insects.
The line of Bayer products is constantly expanding, and in the near future the company is preparing to offer Russian potato growers two new promising products.
The creation of the first of them - biological bactofungicide - is an important step in the development of a new direction for the company in the production of environmentally friendly products.
The drug has a unique biological mechanism of action, provides complete control of diseases. Safe for pollinators, predators, soil-forming fauna. It integrates well into existing protection systems, mixes with many protection products and microfertilizers. Can be used in organic farming systems.
The second novelty is Bandur® - an innovative pre-emergence herbicide with a broad spectrum of action against annual dicotyledonous and cereal weeds in potato plantings. Advantages of the preparation: low risk of phytotoxicity, especially for varieties sensitive to metribuzin; minimal risk of herbicide aftereffect, including for vegetable crops; effective against a wide range of weeds.
Vegetable and field crops seeds
Bayer is widely recognized in the agricultural community as a manufacturer of crop protection products. But today it also offers consumers a large selection of field seeds and vegetable crops, presenting the well-known European brand Seminis on the Russian market.
Seminis is one of the world's largest seed developers and producers. At the moment, the brand's line includes seeds of more than 20 crops, over 2200 hybrids.
The seeds show excellent results on Russian soil. All guests of Potato Russia 2021 could make sure of this by visiting the experimental plots and the company's stand.
In touch with agricultural producers
Potato Field Day has traditionally been a great success, but Bayer is in no hurry to say goodbye to its participants. Over the past two years, when the possibilities for holding face-to-face events have noticeably decreased, the company, striving to maintain maximum openness for agricultural producers, has seriously expanded its presence in the Internet space and even created a potato club there: www.instagram.com/potato_club_bayer/ Now information about new products and promotions is quickly posted here, expert opinions are published, and everyone can share their experience of using the products.
