Nematode resistant Oil radish


The new generation of biological nematode control


  • Beet Cyst Nematode control at the highest level, over 90% reduction of Heterodera schachtii (resistance level 1)
  • AMIGO promotes the hatching of the Beet Cyst Nematodes and reduces actively their population to a level under the damage threshold
  • Improved initial development with fast soil coverage for excellent tilth formation and effective weed suppression
  • Intensive root system binds nutrients and protects them against displacement into deeper soil layers
  • Plenty of organic matter promotes the humus balance and activates the soil life

Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 25 - 30 kg/ha
Sowing depth 2 - 3 cm
Sowing period July until September - depending on location! Early sowing increases successfully the reduction.
Fertilization 40 - 60 kg N/ha
Crop protection Usually there is no plant protection required.
Sowing method In order to gain a fast and even development of the oil radish plants, drilling after careful soil preparation is recommended.
