Previously, growers had limited in-season options to protect their potatoes from nematodes. Bayer now offers a solution with Velum Prime, a nematicide with
fungicidal activity that suppresses nematodes, fights damaging diseases and helps provide higher yields. Velum Prime is a wide-spectrum nematicide that can be
conveniently applied during the season through irrigation systems.
