Difenostar granted EAMU Approval for use on Linseed

Difenostar (active Difeconazole) has been granted an Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU) approval for use on linseed.
Premium Crops' agronomist, Hannah Foxall, says "Difenostar offers growers additional choice of products when it comes to winter fungicide applications. Difeconazole is an important part of the Winter Linseed disease program and acts as a protectant for Linseed over winter from the disease Kabitella Lincola (a Phoma like disease).
With the mild wet winters the past couple of years disease risk is heightened and Difenostar means crops are protected over this risk period."

Desiccation kills any green crop material, eases harvest and ensures the crop is ready to cut at the first opportunity. When making the decision as when to desiccate, it is best to walk into the crop and open a number of bolls to aid the decision-making process. Repeat this across the field to get a sample of the crop. Spotlight Plus does not have the same weed spectrum as Reglone did, and therefore growers should be aware some weeds will not be controlled as well.
