Seed treatment for spinach

Spinach

In the cultivation of spinach, 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 spinach, 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 spinach yield.
