Syngenta Pipeline Preview: Solatenol Fungicide Coming Soon

Syngenta is awaiting registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of Solatenol®-based fungicides. Available in four formulations for use in vegetables, pome fruit, grapes and row crops, products containing Solatenol will result in improved and longer-lasting residual control of diseases, increased yield potential, and maximum return on investment. A preview of each formulation is below:

·          Aprovia® Top fungicide will offer cucurbit and fruiting vegetable growers a powerful, dual-mode-of-action product for improved control of tough diseases. In an environment of emerging disease resistance, Aprovia Top will offer growers a trustworthy new product that combines the proven performance of a triazole with the latest SDHI chemistry.

 

·          Aprovia fungicide will be targeted for use in grapes, apples and pears. Trials have shown that Aprovia is highly effective in controlling apple scab and powdery mildew. As a solo product, it offers growers greater flexibility for integrating into existing disease-control programs

• Elatus® fungicide is specially formulated for use in peanuts and potatoes. By combining Solatenol fungicide and azoxystrobin technology, Elatus will offer peanut growers excellent control of Southern stem rot and other key diseases, and provide potato growers with a more efficacious dual-mode-of-action, in-furrow product to protect their plants from soil-borne diseases in the critical early season.

·         Trivapro™ fungicide, which will be a combination of Solatenol, azoxystrobin and propiconazole, will be registered for use in corn, soybeans and wheat. Trivapro will offer outstanding application flexibility and improved disease control. It also will provide excellent crop enhancement benefits, such as stronger stalks, better root systems, and improved straw quality and drought tolerance. There is no cross-resistance among the three active ingredients in the fungicide (strobilurin, triazole and the newest, longest-lasting SDHI) making it an excellent resistance-management tool.
