SUGAR BEETS

This sugar beet program is intended for informational use only. For the best possible results tailored to meet your needs and soil type, check with your AgPro™ representative for specific recommendations.

Ground Application/Pre-Plant

Fall ground application:

32 to 64 oz. of RECLAIM per acre (2.5 - 5 L/Ha).

 

Spring ground application:

32 to 64 oz. of RECLAIM per acre (2.5 - 5 L/Ha).

GOAL:

Prepare soil for planting by stimulating air and water management.

REASON:

Fall application with spring follow up give the best yields. RECLAIM mediates the effects of sodium and residual chemical toxins on plants and stimulates soil microorganisms. Sugar beets are susceptible to alkali/high sodium conditions in the field which will damage yields and sugar content.

At Planting

Spring – (If fall applied) 16 oz of RECLAIM per acre (1.25 L/Ha) over row

GOAL:

Stimulate strong initial root growth and disease resistance.

 

REASON:
Young beet plants need a strong dose of phosphates to trigger strong root growth. RECLAIM stimulates soil activity allowing break down and absorption of the phosphates

Hail Recovery

16 to 32 oz FOLIARPLEX per acre (1.25 - 2.5 L/Ha)

GOAL:

Provide a coating and protection for broken cell walls where disease can enter.

REASON:

This mix will help heal the plant and keep disease down while plant closes open lesions, the gateway to disease. High nitrogen will spark leaf growth and plant recovery.

Herbicide Spray Program

Apply 16 fl. oz. phLAME per 100 gallon tank mix with contact herbicides (0.5 L per 375 L).

Fungicide Spray Program

Apply 16 to 32 fl. oz. SS 9 per 100 gallon tank mix with fungicides (0.5 - 1 L per 375 L).

Insecticide Spray Program

Apply 5 to 10 oz SPREADER STICKER per 100 gallon tank mix with insecticides (150 - 300 mL per 375 L).

NOTE ABOUT SPRAYING

We strongly recommend using an adjuvant with your spray program. AgPro™ specialty surfactants (SS 9, SPREADER STICKER, phLAME) have proven cost effective with spray applications of chemicals (fungicides, herbicides, pesticides) to allow lowest label rates with better results. The synergy can add potency and extend the chemical life and have allowed some growers to experiment and get exceptional results with well under label rates.

 

Please ask your AgPro™ representative for the appropriate product for your needs and grower’s experiences in your area.
