Syngenta announced today that its newest succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide – Solatenol – has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is now available in four product offerings, pending individual state registrations. Already marketed elsewhere in the world, Solatenol fungicide is now available for use by U.S. growers on a wide range of crops.
Crops in which it will be marketed include: corn, soybeans, wheat, peanuts, potatoes and certain fruit and vegetable crops, including pears, applies and grapes.
In corn, soybeans and wheat, Solatenol will be marketed as Trivapro fungicide, a product that combines three distinct active ingredients – Solatenol, azoxystrobin and propiconazole.
In recent field trials, according to the release, disease incidence data illustrated on average 14.5% less gray leaf spot incidence in corn treated with Trivapro versus current standards and 3.3% less common rust incidence. Trials also consistently demonstrated increased yield potential versus current grower standards, the release noted.
In apples, grapes and pears the chemistry will be offered as Aprovia fungicide. Aprovia provides control of apple scab, powdery mildew, fly speck and sooty blotch.
In fruiting vegetables and cucurbits, Syngenta will sell Aprovia Top fungicide, a product combining Solatenol and difenoconazole, a triazoles.
In peanuts, it will be marketed as Elatus , a combination of Solatenol and azoxystrobin, providing residual control of Southern stem rot (white mold), leaf spot, limb rot and rust, among other diseases.
Additionally, Elatus will be marketed in the potato market as an in-furrow fungicide.
