(Active substances: Monceren DS - pencycuron, Monceren IM - pencycuron and imazalil)
We have two products under the Monceren name: Monceren DS and Monceren IM. Monceren DS contains pencycuron and is our market-leading potato tuber treatment for the control of Rhizoctonia solani. It is formulated as a powder to give you maximum application flexibility. Monceren DS is the leading product available whether your market is pre-pack, processing or seed potatoes.
Monceren IM also contains imazalil and offers additional reduction of silver scurf.
Monceren DS delivers class-leading control of Rhizoctonia solani. It is active against the most common strains of Rhizoctonia solani in the UK potato crop. Monceren IM provides the same effectiveness together with a reduction of silver scurf. Monceren is easy to apply and increases marketable yield and processing quality.
To get the best from the product, apply Monceren DS at or before planting and Monceren IM immediately before planting. Monceren DS and IM are very flexible and robust treatments that can be applied by any of the established dry powder application methods.
By hand applied to chitting trays sprinkled over the surface. To bulk boxes and hoppers, where it must be sprinkled in layers.
Using a dry powder applicator fixed on the planter ensures that there is no waste. Any powder that does not stick to the tubers falls through the planter into the furrow where it is mixed with the soil and helps to reduce the effects of soil-borne Rhizoctonia.
Monceren DS can be used on seed tubers pre-treated with Fungazil 100 SL* (imazalil) or Magnate 100 SL** (imazalil), but not with any other seed treatments applied following storage. Monceren IM must not be used on tubers pre-treated with any other seed treatment. Use of Monceren DS in sequence with Amistar*** (azoxystrobin) soil treatment is at grower’s risk. Monceren IM must not be applied in sequence with Amistar soil treatment.
