Latitude®

Latitude, containing the active ingredient Silthiofam, is a specialist fungicide seed treatment for the reduction of the devastating disease, take-all. A proven, cost effective measure for maximising yield and quality wherever take-all is a problem. Latitude gives the grower a practical tool to aid the management of second and subsequent wheats and barley without any delay to crop emergence. 
Latitude can also be used to maximise the yield and quality of spring wheat where take-all is a problem e.g. after overwintered stubble.

Latitude® protects yield, quality and profit. Check for yourself with the Latitude® Calculator below.
