Bayer presents new Galmano ST formulation in Chile
Bayer CropScience has presented its broad-spectrum systemic fungicidal seed treatment, Galmano 500 FS (fluquinconazole 500 g/litre), for use on wheat in Chile. The suspension concentrate formulation holds 16% more active ingredient than the existing formulation, Galmano Plus 450 FS, and is for the control of stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis), leaf rust (P triticina) and powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis). It is immediately released from the seed after sowing, forming a protective cover as the seed germinates. Sales will commence next month.
