32.5 mL/metric tonne of potatoes
The total slurry volume should deliver an application rate of 2 L per metric tonne of potatoes.
Coverage is key. In order for Stadium to be effective, coverage of the entire potato is required. Any untreated areas of the potato will not be protected.
Stadium should be applied as a post-harvest spray on the line after harvest at a product rate of 32.5 mL/ metric tonne. The total slurry volume should be 2 L per metric tonne of potatoes. Treated potatoes should be just barely wet; if they are shiny or water is dripping off of them, the carrier volume is too high.
Application Information (cont’d):
To improve coverage of the entire tuber and reduce waste:
Ensure that potatoes are as free of dirt as possible, tubers are tumbling and/or rotating along a conveyor line as they are treated
Ensure that a full flow of potatoes is maintained on the conveyor, reducing the amount of open space between tubers
Set up a shield to minimize spray drift if operating outside or if using finer spray nozzles
Position the nozzle spray pattern so that Stadium is applied to the potatoes only and not the conveyor sides or shielding
Check for obstructions such as hanging hoses, which can interfere with the spray pattern
Applications of Stadium that occur more than two days after harvest will not be effective at controlling Fusarium.
