Sowing seed treatment for lettuce and endive

Lettuce and endive

In the cultivation of lettuce and endive, 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 lettuce and endive, these major fungi are treated with Maxim® 480FS. Both FarMore® Technology seed treatment products ensure that the germinating seed develops into a strong plant: the basis for a good lettuce and endive yield.
