Seed treatment for carrots

Carrots

In the cultivation of carrots, seed and soil-borne fungi can cause germination and emergence problems. Immediately after sowing, fungi on or in the vicinity of the seeds come to life. For carrots, these major fungi are treated with Apron® XL and Maxim® 480FS. Both FarMore® Technology seed treatment products ensure that the germinating seed develops into a strong plant: the basis for a good carrot yield.
