The ideal alternative to chlorothalonil in peas and beans

Chlorothalonil (CTL) based chemistry has been a mainstay of disease control in peas and beans for many years so it’s revocation will require a new approach for many.

Signum is a well proven, ideal replacement for CTL in pulses. Signum controls the key diseases in peas and beans and provides the best return on investment compared to alternative options.

Getting the most from Signum

Application should be made before disease is visible in the crop in order to prevent disease establishment and promote improved yield and quality.
