Greensboro, North Carolina (September 15, 2015)--Syngenta announced today that its newest succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide Solatenolฎ has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is now available in four product offerings, pending individual state registrations. Already a blockbuster performer for the company elsewhere in the world, Solatenol fungicide is now available for use by U.S. growers on a wide range of crops.
Growers can expect a step change in disease control from all the products containing Solatenol, with the added benefit of crop enhancement in the row crop market, said Steve Eury, fungicides product marketing lead for Syngenta. These valuable new products demonstrate the continuing commitment Syngenta has to producing innovations that help growers maximize profits.
Solatenol fungicide offers U.S. growers of a dozen major crops an outstanding new option for disease control through several features, including:
The most potent SDHI available with longer-lasting residual control
Broad-spectrum control of profit-robbing foliar diseases and soil pathogens, such as rusts, Septoria, leaf spots, Southern stem rot (white mold), apple scab, powdery mildew, early blight and Rhizoctonia
Flexible application timing and tank-mix compatibility for optimum crop safety and resistance management benefits.Solatenol fungicide is now available for a wide range of crops including:
Corn, soybeans and wheat
In corn, soybeans and wheat, Solatenol will be marketed as Trivapro fungicide, a product that combines the power of three distinct active ingredients Solatenol, azoxystrobin and propiconazole to provide three dimensions of protection against diseases, such as gray leaf spot, stripe rust and Southern rust through:
Protection of new growth through xylem mobility
Creation of a disease shield with translaminar movement
Binding to the waxy layer for extended stay-put protection
These three modes of action make Trivapro the longest-lasting and hardest-working fungicide available for corn, soybean and wheat growers. It is the first product for the U.S. market specifically designed with crop enhancement benefits to change the equation on weather variability. Trivapro protects plants from multiple sources of stress and competition by:
Slowing water loss to conserve soil moisture and increase water-use efficiency, and
Maximizing the suns energy for extended grain/pod fill resulting in bigger ears, more kernels, stronger stalks and pods, reduced lodging, and fewer volunteer crops, for increased yield potential
Trivapro provides improved, broad-spectrum control of many diseases, including:
In corn - common rust, Southern rust, Northern corn leaf blight and gray leaf spot
In soybeans - Frogeye leafspot, brown spot, aerial web blight, and anthracnose
In wheat - leaf rust, stripe rust, stem rust, Septoria, glume blotch, kernel blight and powdery mildew
In recent field trials, disease incidence data illustrated on average 14.5 percent less gray leaf spot incidence in corn treated with Trivapro versus current standards and 3.3 percent less common rust incidence . Trials also consistently demonstrated increased yield potential versus current grower standards.
Apples, grapes and pears
Solatenol will be offered to growers as Aproviaฎ fungicide in apples, grapes and pears. Aprovia:
Provides a step change in apple scab control versus current standards
Tank mixes well with other products
Exhibits no russeting
Allows flexible application timing
Can be used at low rates
Offers a convenient solo formulation
Aprovia provides control of apple scab, powdery mildew, fly speck and sooty blotch.
In fruiting vegetables and cucurbits, Syngenta will sell Aproviaฎ Top fungicide, a product combining Solatenol fungicide and difenoconazole, one of the leading triazoles in the world. Aprovia Top helps maximize yield potential and crop quality by:
Providing the long-lasting residual control that growers demand via its rainfastness and ability to move throughout sprayed leaves, and
Acting as a resistance management option combining two powerful modes of action to help manage disease resistance
Key diseases controlled by Aprovia Top include:
In cucurbits - powdery mildew and gummy stem blight
In tomatoes - Septoria, Alternaria, anthracnose and powdery mildew
Elatusฎ fungicide, a combination of Solatenol fungicide and azoxystrobin, provides peanut growers with the disease control they need to maximize yield potential and their return on investment. Elatus provides application flexibility and reliable, long-lasting residual control of yield-robbing peanut diseases, such as Southern stem rot (white mold), leaf spot, limb rot and rust.
Elatus will also be sold as an in-furrow product for improved disease control in potatoes. Both Solatenol fungicide and azoxystrobin are very active against Rhizoctonia species, providing excellent disease control and optimizing yield and quality, resulting in:
Uniform crop stand
Enhanced crop health
Optimized tuber size and quality distribution
