The article reports on the increase in the options for manipulating crop canopies as a result of the development of the A14049A growth regulator and difenoconazole fungicide for oilseed rape by Syngenta. It explains the findings of the trials conducted for A14049A in two spring periods. It mentions that the growth regulator will get autumn recommendations.
