ABSTRACT
The article provides information on efforts to give better protection to brassica varieties. While both seed and crop protection companies workhard to help growers, they've mostly worked in isolation from each other, Syngenta AG's field vegetable technical manager, Jon Ogborn, suggests. A new broccoli variety, RBR150, would have been scrapped due to its susceptibility to the disease white blister. But trials indicate improved disease control from a chemical Amistar, according to S& G Seeds' trials officer, Mike Molyneux. Amistar provides a new mode of action, in addition to current standard metalaxyl. In addition to that article provides information on how to use pesticides to prevent diseases.
