Trivapro® fungicide delivers consistent gains in back-to-back years

  • Trivapro fungicide from Syngenta shows its value two years in a row
  • Even under low disease pressure, Trivapro helps improve yield and ROI
  • Trivapro-treated plants recover quicker from drought stress

GREENSBORO, N.C., US, Feb. 26, 2018 — With preparations for the 2018 growing season in full swing, input decisions like whether to invest in a fungicide are top of mind for growers across the U.S. With back-to-back years of proven yield benefits, Trivapro® fungicide from Syngenta is a product to consider no matter the conditions Mother Nature presents this season.

In 2016, Trivapro significantly improved yields in high-disease environments, combatting Southern rust, Northern corn leaf blight and gray leaf spot in corn, frogeye leaf spot in soybeans and stripe rust in wheat.

However, the 2017 season was a drier year with pockets of drought, so disease pressure throughout the Midwest and South was variable and on average lower than the previous year. These conditions provided the opportunity for users to see the plant-health benefits and ROI Trivapro delivers, even under unpredictable disease pressure.

“If growers compare the Trivapro label to competitors’, they’ll see that Trivapro contains Solatenol® fungicide and two other proven active ingredients. This combination provides extended residual activity, unmatched disease protection and exceptional plant-health benefits,” said Eric Tedford, Syngenta technical fungicide lead.

Derek Petersen, a retailer with CHS Magnolia in Southwest Minnesota, said of his corn trials, “Toward the end of July, the leaves were starting to roll up, but where we applied Trivapro, they seemed to recuperate faster.”

Even with low disease pressure, Petersen reported an average 10 bushel-per-acre (bu/A) increase in his corn trials and an average 6 bu/A increase in his soybean trials, versus untreated.

Further south, growers and retailers also experienced the value of Trivapro on their corn acres:

“A 10-bushel yield increase will cover the cost of application of the fungicide,” said Jeremy Sollberger, a retailer with Southern States in Campbellsville, Kentucky. “With Trivapro, we’re seeing a 20-plus bushel increase, so that’s $70 in the producer’s pocket. I don’t know what else they’re going to do during the season to put $70 in their pocket.”

“The consistency from Trivapro in back-to-back years has given retailers and growers more confidence when incorporating it into their management plans and recommendations,” said Brett Johnson, Syngenta fungicide product lead.
