Farmers looking to control disease and fungus in a variety of crops will soon have a new fungicide option in their arsenal. Syngenta is offering Miravis fungicide with a new active ingredient, Adepidyn, which is currently pending Environmental Protection Agency approval.
Syngenta says Miravis provides the following:
- Activity against leaf spots and powdery mildew
- Efficacy against botryis, sclerotinia and corynespora for grape, peanut and potato growers
- Control of fusarium, including fusarium head blight (scab) in cereals
“Not only will Adepidyn fungicide provide exceptional control of common yield and quality limiting diseases, but it will also deliver crop enhancement benefits in row crops that growers have seen with our other products,” said Eric Tedford, technical product lead at Syngenta.
Once the product is through regulatory approval multiple brands in different crops will be available. Formulation brand extensions for corn, grapes, peanuts, potatoes, soybeans, wheat and other crops will be announced in 2017.
