Syngenta announces EPA registration of game-changing fungicide Adepidyn®

  • Adepidyn® fungicide will be marketed under the Miravis® line of brands, with five separate product offerings for growers of crops as diverse as corn, soy, wheat, peanuts, vegetables and grapes

  • Unique carboxamide fungicide sets a new standard for power, spectrum and stamina 

  • New Miravis product line delivers exceptional control of the most damaging diseases growers face and plant-health benefits to help maximize quality, yield and potential return on investment (ROI)

  • First sales targeted for late 2018 and early 2019


GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, May 24, 2018 – Syngenta announced today its latest carboxamide fungicide (SDHI mode of action) – Adepidyn – has been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Formulated in five products under the Miravis brand family, Syngenta will make Adepidyn fungicide broadly available in the U.S. in late 2018 and 2019, subject to state approvals. Containing unmatched potency within the carboxamide class of chemistry, each product in the Miravis range will set a new standard for disease control and potential ROI.

“Adepidyn fungicide is the third new fungicide Syngenta has brought to market in the last three years, in keeping with our commitment to provide growers with the tools they need to help make their operations more efficient and profitable,” said Steve Eury, fungicide product marketing lead at Syngenta. “With Adepidyn fungicide we have applied our expertise in fungicide development to combine the best features of previous products into a single active ingredient, delivering a more complete combination of power, spectrum and stamina.”

The Miravis line of products will be offered to growers in a wide range of crops, from corn and soybeans, to wheat, peanuts, grapes, vegetables and potatoes through five distinct brands: 
  • Providing the most powerful activity among all chemical classes against leaf spots and powdery mildew 

  • Offering high efficacy against difficult-to-control diseases where growers have limited options, including Botrytis, Sclerotinia and Corynespora, which cause significant yield loss in crops as diverse as grapes, peanuts and potatoes 

  • Delivering groundbreaking control of Fusarium head blight (head scab) in wheat 


The Miravis line of products will be offered to growers in a wide range of crops from corn and soybeans to wheat, peanuts and grapes, vegetables and potatoes through five distinct brands: 

Miravis Ace – Wheat

Miravis Ace fungicide, created for wheat, will be a new mode of action available for Fusarium head scab control, offering growers a valuable new tool in the fight against the disease. 

Miravis Top – Soybeans

Miravis Top fungicide has been formulated specifically for the disease spectrum Southern soybean growers battle, including: strobilurin-resistant and susceptible frogeye leaf spot, target spot and Septoria brown spot. 

Miravis Neo – Corn and soybeans

Miravis Neo fungicide will offer superior control of the most damaging corn diseases, such as gray leaf spot, Northern corn leaf blight and rusts (common and Southern). In soybeans, Miravis Neo will offer growers a new tool for white mold, frogeye leaf spot and Septoria leaf spot. In addition to outstanding disease control, Miravis Neo delivers excellent plant-health benefits to help crops reach full yield potential. 

Miravis – Peanuts

Containing Adepidyn fungicide, Miravis fungicide is a game changer against early and late leaf spot, providing unmatched potency and extended control. When combined with proven performer Elatus® fungicide, introduced by Syngenta in 2016, growers can feel confident they have achieved the longest-lasting, most potent leaf spot and white mold control available. 

Miravis Prime – Specialty and vegetable crops 

Miravis Prime fungicide will be marketed for use on grapes, potatoes, cucurbits and fruiting vegetables. Miravis Prime provides excellent performance in spray programs for several difficult-to-control, economically damaging diseases including Botrytis in grapes, early blight in potatoes and gummy stem blight in vegetables.

Regardless of which Miravis brand growers use, they can expect to benefit from the visibly powerful performance enabled by Adepidyn fungicide. 

“As we’ve developed the Miravis brands in the U.S., what has stood out in hundreds of trials is how powerfully and consistently they perform regardless of crop or geography,” Eury said. “It’s going to be very satisfying to show our grower customers what these new products can do for them.”
