Nematodes live underground and can be difficult to manage or even identify which is a serious issue in crop production. Potatoes are negatively impacted directly by nematodes feeding on roots and tubers and indirectly through transmission of diseases.
Bayer V+M Solution offers growers a cost-effective, convenient solution for nematode management.

V+M Solution is a nematode management program that combines the wide-spectrum nematicidal activity of Velum® Prime with the sustained in-season nematode protection of Movento® to guard against nematodes.
Both Velum Prime and Movento are easy to handle, can be integrated with existing in-season crop management systems and offer the additional benefits of disease and insect management.
Additionally, V+M Solution products are not restricted-use, do not require buffer zones and require minimal PPE. The V+M Solution provides nematode protection that results in a higher-yielding, higher-quality, more profitable crop.
