Miravis® Prime fungicide is now available in California


Powered by Adepidyn technology, Miravis Prime offers more powerful performance and long-lasting control of economically challenging diseases in grapes and other specialty crops to drive higher marketable yield potential 

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, June 2, 2020Miravis® Prime fungicide – developed by Syngenta to deliver powerful, broad-spectrum disease control in grapes and other specialty and vegetable crops – is now registered for use in California. 

“Specialty crop producers – particularly grape growers – need the power that Miravis Prime brings to the field and vineyard,” says Raj Iragavarapu, Syngenta product marketing lead for fungicides. “With dual, highly efficacious active ingredients, Miravis Prime controls those difficult diseases that impact their marketable yield opportunity. The result: crops are cleaner and greener.” 

The combination of fludioxonil and Adepidyn® technology in Miravis Prime can help California growers recharge their spray programs and maintain effective control of difficult diseases such as Botrytis and powdery mildew in grapes, early blight in potatoes, and powdery mildew in cucurbits. Adepidyn technology needs fewer in-season applications to deliver long-lasting disease control and increase marketable yield potential.

Since Miravis Prime received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2018, growers report performance that enhanced their marketable yield and increased their earning potential.

“As we have introduced the Miravis brands in the United States, what has stood out is how powerfully and consistently this family of brands performs, regardless of crop or geography,” says James Hadden, fungicide technical lead at Syngenta. “California specialty crop growers need what Miravis Prime can do for them.”

Miravis Prime’s powerful active ingredients deliver on several levels to help boost crop performance. These include:
  • A visible plant health boost through protected photosynthetic capacity, long-lasting water-use efficiency and prolonged greening
  • Heavy accumulation into the wax layer and translocation through the leaves for extended residual control
  • Stable, even distribution on the leaf surface to put up multiple barriers against infection
  • Flexibility to complement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) spray programs
  • Long-lasting disease control that results in higher marketable yield potential and a more efficient harvest
Miravis Prime fungicide helps control Botrytis and powdery mildew in grapes.
