Latitude®

Latitude®, containing the active ingredient Silthiofam, is a specialist fungicide seed treatment for the reduction of the devastating disease, take-all. It has proved cost effective in 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.
