Inspire XT Fungicide Receives Federal Registration for Sugarbeets

Syngenta Crop Protection.

Greensboro, North Carolina (February 23, 2009)--Syngenta Crop Protection today announced the United States Environmental Protection Agency registration of Inspire® XT fungicide for use on sugarbeets. Inspire XT replaces Inspire® SB and controls Cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew, two very damaging sugarbeet diseases. State registrations are still pending in certain states. Check with your state regulatory agency to determine registration status.


“By combining difenoconazole and propiconazole into one product, we’re able to offer sugarbeet growers improved disease control,” said David Laird, fungicide brand manager at Syngenta. “By combining two triazoles, this product offers robust, broad spectrum disease control.”

The combination of these two active ingredients provides users with long-lasting control of Cercospora leaf spot and powdery mildew due to translaminar and xylem-systemic activity. Both active ingredients have preventive and curative properties that give growers flexibility in application timing. Inspire XT offers a short 12-hour Restricted-entry Interval (REI) and a variety of application methods.

“Following the successful introduction of Inspire SB to the sugarbeet market, Syngenta is eager to get this new, enhanced product to growers. We believe that Inspire XT will become an integral part of sugarbeet disease management,” said Laird.

Inspire XT is another way Syngenta Crop Protection, Seed Care and Syngenta Seeds/Hilleshög use their combined 100-plus years of experience providing cutting-edge innovation to the sugarbeet industry.
