Strategic Crop Protection Helps Maximize Potato Yield

A strategic crop protection program will help maximize potato yield and grower profitability. DuPont potato experts Greg Simonson and Jeremy Boyer describe options for effective disease, insect and weed control throughout the potato growing season and the impact on yield.

A disease-control program that employs DuPont™ Vertisan® and Tanos® fungicides in sequence, alternating with other modes of action, will help provide control of most major potato diseases, including white mold, Botrytis, early blight, late blight, brown spot and black dot so potato crops can reach their yield potential.

DuPont™ Matrix® SG herbicide is a proven weed-control solution that provides both foliar and residual activity in soil to help keep potato fields clean and competitive weeds under control to support potato yield.

Manage threats from insects that hurt quality and yield and can transmit disease with DuPont™ Avaunt® insecticide. Avaunt® controls damage from worms including Colorado potato beetle, leafhoppers, potato psyllid and more with lasting protection.
