Just think: for every hectare of oilseed rape you grow this season, you’ll produce 0.15 tonnes of seed or £55 per hectare more* than if you use the nearest competitor. 100 hectares? That’s £5,500 simply for using the right seed treatment.
Added to which you’ll have the reassurance of label-approved control of aphids that spread TuYV (Turnip Yellows Virus), together with effective flea beetle protection.
With Modesto you’ll gain higher seed and oil quality from a bigger, healthier OSR crop. Your advisor will be pleased to give you further details. Meanwhile, just click the link above.
*12 independent trials, Modesto + HY-PRO Duet (2005-09) OSR vauled at £354/tonne
Trials with Modesto over 4 years have consistently shown highly economic yield increases compared to not using an insecticide seed treatment. With current oilseed rape price levels, Modesto gave a positive benefit in 19 out of 21 trials, and an average benefit worth around £150 per hectare.
In comparison with the other seed treatments available, Modesto plus HY-PRO Duet gave the highest yields and on average 0.15 t/ha over the thiamethoxam (TMX) -based comparison.
This difference between treatments was recorded from12 independently conducted trials, a demonstration of the consistent levels of establishment, and good early pest and disease control, including TuYV, given by Modesto.
