Established in 1975, Boothmans Agriculture provides reliable, effective agronomic expertise and support to farmers, reinforced by an efficient agrochemical warehousing and distribution service.
In March 2015, the directors of Boothmans Agriculture took the decision to become part of the Frontier Agriculture group. Whilst the business and it’s farmer customers benefit greatly from this joining of forces, it continues to be managed by the Boothman family together with its original core values.
Sulphur and common scab reduction – The Facts
Irrigation is still the main tool some growers have to reduce the incidence of common scab. However, water usage issues have now put the spotlight very much onto alternative methods of controlling scab in potatoes.
Supercharge Your Spraying Water
Spraying hard water, containing dissolved calcium and magnesium ions, locks onto pesticide active ingredients to form insoluble complexes . At this point, the pesticide active ingredient becomes insoluble and cannot be taken up by target plants or insects.
This workshop is suitable for farmers, farm managers and sprayer operators. This annual training event is a highly useful source of information and tool for increasing awareness of best practice regarding pesticide application.
