" By incorporating COLEOFAR® into my crop management techniques, I very quickly observed visible benefits: visual effect, better growth, etc.” .

The farmer’s objectives

Ensure good crop establishment in order to enable the plant to best express its production potential.

Agricultural practice

The cool and wet conditions experienced in 2013 were not conducive to rapid growth in corn crops. François CAILLON used COLEOFAR® Arable crop T by broadcast application at a dose of 5 litres / hectare in 300 litres of water:

  • Preventively on 8 ha, 5 days after sowing,
  • Curatively on 15 ha, at the 4-leaves stage.

The fact that planting corn followed by oorn meant his field was highly vulnerable to wireworm attacks had to be taken into account. He applied COLEOFAR®, seeking the best application conditions.
