WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 19 Bayer CropScience • (866) 992-2937 • www.cropscience.bayer.us V+M Solution V+M Solution is a nematode management program that combines the wide-spectrum nematicidal activity of Velum Prime with the sustained in-season nematode protection of Movento to guard against nematodes. Both Velum Prime and Movento are easy to handle, can be integrated with existing in-season crop management systems and offer the additional benefits of disease and insect management. Additionally, V+M. Velum Prime nematicide is a solution for nematode and disease management and should be applied early in the potato-growing season via overhead chemigation to help provide higher yields through suppression of nematodes and disease. Velum Prime has been shown to be effective against a wide range of plant-parasitic nematodes with its unique mode of action. Movento insecticide provides protection from nematodes through convenient in-season applications that improve crop quality and return on investment. When sprayed on the leaf surface, Movento penetrates the leaf cuticle, where it becomes fully mobile within the plant. Movento then moves from the leaves to the roots. After being exposed to Movento, juvenile stage nematodes are no longer able to develop, thereby reducing populations. AMVAC Chemical Corporation • (323) 264-3910 • www.amvac-chemical.com ReTurn XL AMVAC recently announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Rotam North America to market and sell ReTurn XL insecticide/nematicide. With the active ingredient oxymyl, ReTurn XL provides suppression of nematodes and controls Colorado potato beetle, leafhoppers and other sucking and chewing insects. It includes two-way foliar and soil systemic activity for above- and below-ground protection, making it an excellent pest management option for potato growers. Below-ground, ReTurn XL provides suppression of Columbia root knot, lesion and stubby root nematode. Above-ground, it provides secondary insect control and is compatible with potato psyllid control programs. It also suppresses purple top and zebra chip diseases and does not cause secondary pest flares. AMVAC now offers a more comprehensive nematode management plan with Vapam or K-Pam applied in the fall or early spring, followed by ReTurn XL in crop. FMC Agricultural Solutions • (215) 299-6000 • www.fmccrop.com Ethos XB Growers can now get the broadest spectrum of in-furrow defense against disease and soil insects with Ethos XB insecticide/fungicide. Ethos XB is a first-of-its-kind in-furrow solution that offers the broadest spectrum of seedling defense against soil pests and diseases throughout the critical growth stage when most yield potential is set. Ethos XB's convenient, integrated protection combined with liquid fertilizer application creates an environment where seedlings emerge more quickly, more uniformly and with the vigor to optimize productivity. Ethos XB defends against armyworms, grubs, stalk borer, corn rootworm, root aphid, sugarcane beetle, cutworm species, seedcorn beetle, wireworms, grape colapsis and seedcorn maggot. Disease defense includes Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Phytophthora FMC Portfolio Beleaf 50 SG insecticide helps control both piercing and sucking insects. Coragen insect control handles immature and adult stages of key Lepidopetran pests, delivering fast and long-lasting control, acting fast to rapidly paralyze insects after application. Exirel insect control offers unique, cross-spectrum activity on a broad spectrum of pests including aphids, psyllids and Colorado potato beetle while also having a low impact on many beneficials. Avaunt insecticide offers fast protection from yield-robbing pests including European corn borer, cabbage looper and potato tuberworm. Oro Agri • (559) 442-4996 • www.oroagriusa.com Prev-Am Prev-Am is a three-in-one insecticide, fungicide and miticide. It is a contact pesticide that can be applied throughout the season without danger of resistance buildup and is perfect for controlling pre-harvest insect and disease infestations. With a short REI and PHI, Prev-Am is a versatile alternative to conventional pesticides and is ideal for IPM and sustainable farming practices. Prev-Am's desiccating properties result in quick knockdown of insects and mites, typically within two to 24 hours. The water-repellent layer protecting most insects loses its effectiveness when they come in contact with Prev-Am. This allows the active ingredient to penetrate and destroy the soft, living tissues underneath. The insects and mites are then exposed to the loss of body fluids, causing death. As a fungicide, the Prev-Am spray solution breaks down the protective membranes of the superficial fungal mycelia and spores, allowing the active ingredient to penetrate and destroy the living tissues underneath. This exposes the organism to the drying effect of the atmosphere and also causes collapse within two to 24 hours. Plant tissue damaged by the fungus may also dry out and prevent further spread of infection, but healthy tissue is not affected at the recommended application rate.
