Post emergence potato spray


The Shire
Jade praxim gosi will be going on taurus. Can see me going till the end of next then they just be up.
Personally, if they were only just through I would still use that mix to avoid reliance on post-emergence options (which are likely to disappoint)... moisture present and warmer weather around the corner equals so many weeds therefore I can't think of anything worse than reliance on Basagran or Titus.

If you are really late you could apply the Gozai on its own, burn the spud tops off, then apply pre-emergence mix a couple of days later.... yes this will set the crop back a bit but potentially worth while if the ground is weedy.


In my experience, the only post-emergence potato herbicide that doesn't consistently disappoint is metribuzin (Sencorex/Shotput). Basagran and Titus aren't particularly effective and can knock the crop too. Obviously this depends on weed spectrum and having a variety you can apply it to post-emergence. If only a small percentage of plants are up I'd go with your pre-emergence option. Of all the potato products, they're some of the safer ones close to emergence.
