Empowering Agriculture with Effective Weed Control

Revolutionize sugarbeet farming with CONVISO® SMART: advanced herbicide-tolerant KWS varieties paired with CONVISO® ONE, a targeted ALS herbicide.


The new generation Cercospora varieties

CR+: We change the rules.

The new generation Cercospora varieties follows a new rule: A high level of tolerance AND a high performance under both high and low Cercospora pressure.


CR+ Management

CR+ varieties offer new and excitingly strong options to push back Cercospora. In many cases Cercospora spots appear later, the disease progression is slowed down and disease severity is reduced. This allows to rethink Cercospora Management towards a more field-tailored approach.


Virus Yellows

Virus Yellows is one of the most important diseases that affected sugarbeet in the early 70’s. With the introduction of seed treatment insecticides to control the aphids that transmit the disease, Virus Yellows lost its importance for many years.

Nowadays, a combination of mulptiple factors resulted in a coming back of the disease and reintroduced an unwelcomed threat to sugarbeet growers in many countries.
