Improved Sucker Control
A newly TRB passed suckeride trialed is Flumetralin Duo which is an emulsifiable concentrate locally systemic and contact growth regulator consisting of 13,5% Flumetralin and 30% N’decanol.
On going trials have been conducted on a commercial farm in Banket and here are the findings:
Two applications were applied, the first application using a 5 cup per plant (75 lts of mixture per hectare) ¾ of the way up the plant just before topping and another 5 cup over the top on completion of topping.
Initially after application, the sucker showed burn in the heart and distortion in the small leaves. However, after a few weeks, most of the distorted suckers had been burnt out completely.
