Syngenta Receives Approval For Fungicide ADEPIDYN In Argentina
Syngenta has announced that MIRAVIS Duo, a combination of ADEPIDYN and difenoconazole, has been approved by SENASA (regulatory authority in Argentina), for use on soybean for late cycle diseases. This is the first registration for a product based on ADEPIDYN, a new fungicide belonging to the carboxamide chemical class.
ADEPIDYN provides a step change in leaf spot disease management and delivers excellent control of powdery mildew. It is highly effective on difficult-to-control diseases such as Fusarium head blight and moulds which cause severe damage to the crop. Syngenta is currently developing several ADEPIDYN based products to address various disease management challenges in soybean, wheat, corn, canola, vegetables and specialty crops around the world.
Jon Parr, President Global Crop Protection, Syngenta, said “MIRAVIS Duo builds on our strong fungicide heritage including ELATUS and AMISTAR Technology. By continuing to deliver industry-leading innovation to growers, we are strengthening our global leadership in fungicides.”
First sales of MIRAVIS Duo are expected in the 2016/2017 soybean season in Argentina. Regulatory approvals are pending in several other markets.
