Crop Fodder beet, sugar beet
Diseases Controlled Rust, powdery mildew, cercospora, ramularia leaf spot
Product Type Fungicide
Active Ingredient Cyproconazole 160 g/L
Trifloxystrobin 375 g/L
Formulation Type Suspension concentrate
Pack Size 5 litres
Application Rate/Timing Apply 0.35 L/ha.
Apply at the onset of disease. Escolta will give most effective disease control when applied as the diseases first become active in the crop and before disease becomes established. It will give prolonged protection from re-infection, but a second spray may be applied 3-4 weeks later if crops are at risk from later attacks.

TECHNICAL UPDATE: In 2018/19, Cercospora resistance to Qol fungicides was found in beet crops in a small number of NZ locations. If Cercospora resistance is present in your crop, and conditions favour disease development, Escolta may not always provide control, but it will continue to control other important diseases, leading to profitable yield increases.
Water Rate Ground: Apply at least 200 litres of water per hectare
Aerial: 80 L/ha
Withholding Period Fodder Beet/Sugar Beet: 42 days
No. Applications/Season Maximum two per season
