DID YOU KNOW?
SHABRAS builds its yield by maintaining a lot of tillers. Feeding these
tillers early on is a key nitrogen timing as SHABRAS quickly reaches stem
extension and therefore utilises the available soil nutrients quickly.
Once at stem extension, SHABRAS will move at an even pace and will reach
major fungicide timings at similar times to JB Diego.
