January 30, 2018 [Toronto, ON] –
AZteroid FC fungicide, the only fertilizer-compatible fungicide for sugarbeets is included on American Crystal Sugar Company’s 2018 Ag Gold Standards list for 2018.

AZteroid FC is unique among sugarbeet fungicides because it can be mixed in the same tank with starter fertilizer and applied at plant to control rhizoctonia, and to maximize yield and sugar content.

Vicki Dekkers, Sales Representative at Vive Crop Protection, says, “Being able to mix AZteroid FC with starter fertilizer is a great benefit for sugarbeet growers. It`s so easy to use – no worries about mixing or clogging the sprayer. Taking care of those early-season diseases helps the beets get growing.”

AZteroid FC is one of the first fertilizer-compatible products available from Vive Crop Protection.
