Desica is an effective potato vine killer for use in seed and table potatoes. Leaf kill is rapid (3-4 days) with kill of stems taking place gradually (10-14 days), creating conditions that closely approach 'natural' maturity. At recommended rates, Desica also desiccates weeds that are present, increasing harvest efficiency. Stopping growth of potato tops also helps reduce the incidence of tuber rot. (2/case)

Product benefits

  • Tubers of top-killed potato plants mature naturally, developing a thicker and more scuff-resistant skin
  • Desiccated potato vines pass more easily through harvesting equipment
  • Reduces late-season transmission of diseases due to less skinning
  • Works on contact and is rainfast in 15 minutes
