Potency and persistence are invaluable traits for a fungicide, whether it’s designed for row crops, fruits or vegetables. Aprovia® and Aprovia® Top fungicides from Syngenta not only offer strong levels of protection. They also help growers manage resistance challenges, too.

“If you overuse one mode of action, you’re begging for resistance,” says Craig Austin, Ph.D., an agronomic service representative for Syngenta.

Aprovia and Aprovia Top fungicides from Syngenta, which help control fungal diseases in a wide range of specialty and vegetable crops, contain Solatenol, the most potent SDHI fungicide on the market.

“There’s zero tolerance for apple scab in fresh-market apples, and Aprovia is a game-changer,” says Austin, who adds that Aprovia also controls powdery mildew and cedar apple rust. “Solatenol is the warhead that’s incredibly potent and persistent in Aprovia, which you apply at bloom to get your crop off to a good start.”

Aprovia Top combines two different modes of action, including Solatenol and difenonconazole, one of the best triazole chemistries available, says James Hadden, Ph.D., technical product lead for fungicides at Syngenta. “Aprovia Top is an effective resistance-management tool, plus it gives a one-two punch to fungal diseases like gummy stem blight, which can be devastating in watermelon production.”

“The Syngenta portfolio of fungicides allows retailers and growers to mix and match the best solutions for their needs while managing for resistance.”

Last year’s weather in certain regions across the country tested the strength of crop disease-control programs, Austin notes. “Growers who struggled with wet conditions in many areas in 2017 saw the value of fungicides,” Austin says. “The Syngenta portfolio of fungicides allows retailers and growers to mix and match the best solutions for their needs while managing for resistance.”
