First-year users report exceptional performance from Trivapro® fungicide

  • Corn, soybean and wheat growers experienced significant yield boosts with Trivapro® fungicide
  • Trivapro extended residual disease control weeks longer than competitive brands
  • Trivapro was the only fungicide rated excellent for Southern rust control by university extensions including Purdue, Tennessee and Arkansas

GREENSBORO, N.C., US, —With the new growing season around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about inputs for 2017. As growers weigh their fungicide options, Syngenta presents 2016 performance data and testimonials for Trivapro® fungicide to remove any question about which fungicide will help them get the job done.

During its first season of use, Trivapro combatted gray leaf spot, Northern corn leaf blight and rust in several states and helped crops withstand extreme weather like heavy wind, rain and drought. Its long-lasting residual control of diseases and crop-enhancement benefits helped protect leaf integrity, resulting in lengthened grain-fill window and maximized yield potential at harvest.

Across the Midwest and South, Trivapro-treated acres produced:

  • An average of 27 bushels per acre (bu/A) more corn than untreated1
  • An average of 8 bu/A more soybeans than untreated2
  • Between 11 and 27 bu/A more wheat than untreated and competitive brands3

“Despite the adverse weather and other bad conditions we experienced, Trivapro fungicide kept our corn green and healthy,” said Luke Lauritsen, a grower and Golden Harvest® Seed AdvisorTM in Arlington, Nebraska. “We were very happy with its 45-day residual control.”

Even under stress from disease and unpredictable weather, Trivapro-treated fields were stronger and visibly superior to untreated checks and competitive brands. In fact, Trivapro was the only fungicide rated excellent for Southern rust control by several university extensions including: Purdue, Tennessee and Arkansas. Across all registered crops, first-year users experienced this high-level of control from Trivapro firsthand.

Randy James, a wheat grower in Dayton, Washington explained, “Visually, we definitely saw a difference, and then when we looked at the yield, we had a 14-bushel increase compared to Priaxor® and Propi-Star®, the other treatment we used.”

Trivapro contains three active ingredients – azoxystrobin, propiconazole and Solatenol® fungicide – that combine to provide both preventive and curative disease control. Solatenol binds tightly to the waxy layer of the leaf, setting it apart from competitive brands and increasing the length of control through the season.

“In several on-farm trials, Trivapro residual lasted 15 to 20 days longer than competitive brands. That type of result from a fungicide does more than pay for itself; it helps add to your bottom line,” said Andrew Fisher, fungicide brand manager at Syngenta. “Ultimately, if you want to control key diseases and maximize yield in 2017, Trivapro will provide the most value for your dollar.”
