Only SMART KWS varieties are tolerant to the highly effective herbicide CONVISO® ONE. The combination of SMART KWS varieties and the herbicide CONVISO® ONE will help to catch the full benefits of the new system – the CONVISO® SMART system.
The CONVISO® SMART system is an alternative to classic weed control.
In situations where labor force or machine capacity is limited in spring CONVISO® SMART might be a suitable alternative, limiting herbicide applications in sugarbeet to only two.
In fields with a high weed beet infestation CONVISO® SMART can be the once in a livetime opportunity to bring it back in to beet production.
Looking at pellet materials, pellet size, treatments or outer color - SMART KWS seeds will have the same characteristics like classic seeds. There is no need for technical adaptation or changes of equipment and machinery.
CONVISO® ONE is a post-emergence herbicide that can be used as split or single application with maximum dose limited to 1L/ha per year. Additionally CONVISO® ONE can be used in tank mixtures or sequences with other products to adapt the system for specific conditions (e.g. tall weeds, weed resistance management) or weather situations (e.g. long lasting drought).
As a general rule, overreliance on the same herbicide mode of action increases the selection pressure and might lead to the development of herbicide resistance overtime. Within a crop rotation several measures are available to reduce this risk proactively.
