Greensboro, North Carolina (May 24, 2010)--Syngenta Crop Protection today announced the federal EPA registration and California Department of Pesticide Regulation approval of Quadris® Top fungicide for use on tomatoes and potatoes in California. Quadris Top contains the active ingredients azoxystrobin, a strobilurin fungicide, and difenoconazole, a triazole fungicide. State registrations or specific crop and/or pest uses may still be pending in certain states. Check with your state regulatory agency to determine registration status.
“With two active ingredients, Quadris Top offers growers a high level of activity and reliability for complete control of many important plant diseases on a wide range of crops,” said David Laird, Syngenta fungicide brand manager. ”Its low-use rates and application flexibility also make it an effective product in any line-up and a great addition in many Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.”
Quadris Top provides high intrinsic activity, excellent rainfastness and rapid uptake with translaminar movement of difenoconazole and xylem-mobile movement of azoxystrobin.
“We are excited to add Quadris Top to the Syngenta product portfolio. Through our commitment to research and development, and passion for the agriculture industry, we are able to introduce products like Quadris Top that provide dependable, broad-spectrum disease control,” Laird said.
In addition to providing quality products to help growers achieve optimal results, Syngenta is also investing in the future of agriculture by collaborating with youth education organizations, such as 4-H and the National FFA Organization, and sponsoring such FFA programs as the American FFA Degree, Ag Ambassadors, Chapter Leadership Continuums, Agriscience Fair and Blue Jacket Program. Syngenta also provides scholarship opportunities to agriculture-focused high school and college students.
