Syngenta learning module details better Fusarium head blight control

  • Module explains how Miravis® Ace fungicide provides superior control of Fusarium head blight
  • Mobile-friendly format enables convenient access for completion on-the-go
  • CEU credit available for completing 15-minute module and short quiz

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, September 18, 2018Syngenta has released a new learning module to provide retailers, applicators and growers with information about Miravis® Ace fungicide, which delivers groundbreaking control of Fusarium head blight (head scab) and Septoria leaf spot. Miravis Ace features Adepidyn® fungicide, an SDHI mode of action recently registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and will be available for sale in the 2019 season.

The interactive, mobile-friendly learning module consists of four parts that provide an overview of Adepidyn fungicide, Miravis Ace, application timing and performance. A variety of comparison images and graphics demonstrate the effectiveness of Miravis Ace versus competitive brands, when applied at flowering and at 50 percent head emergence.

Miravis Ace“Wheat growers are well aware of the problems head scab brings to their fields and how tight the application window can be,” said Eric Tedford, technical product lead at Syngenta. “With Miravis Ace, we wanted to provide them with a fungicide that not only brings a new mode of action to the fight against head scab, but brings more potency, which can enable more application flexibility compared to other products.”

The learning module demonstrates the unique ability of Miravis Ace to enable head scab applications as early as 50 percent head emergence. Users will learn how Miravis Ace gives wheat growers a head start on head scab control and how its additional benefits for Septoria leaf spot control can help drive yield and reduce DON levels.

After completing the learning module, participants can take a short quiz to test their knowledge and receive CEU credit.
