Solatenol Fungicide Receives Registration

The breakthrough fungicide gives growers of a dozen major crops a superior, longer-lasting disease control option.

Already a blockbuster performer elsewhere in the world, Solatenol® fungicide, the newest succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide from Syngenta, is now available for use on a wide range of crops including corn, soybean, wheat, peanuts, potatoes, and various fruits and vegetables.

Solatenol fungicide offers U.S. growers of a dozen major crops an outstanding new option for disease control. It is the most potent SDHI available with longer-lasting residual control, and it offers broad-spectrum control of profit-robbing foliar diseases and soil pathogens. Its flexible application timing and tank-mix compatibility help facilitate optimum crop safety and resistance management.

"Growers can expect a step change in disease control from all the products containing Solatenol, with the added benefit of crop enhancement in the row crop market," says Steve Eury, fungicides product marketing lead at Syngenta. "These valuable new products demonstrate the continuing commitment Syngenta has to producing innovations that help growers maximize profits."

Solatenol is now available in four product offerings, pending individual state registrations.

In corn, soybeans and wheat, Solatenol will be marketed as Trivapro fungicide, a product that combines the power of three distinct active ingredients—Solatenol, azoxystrobin and propiconazole—to provide three dimensions of protection against diseases, such as gray leaf spot, stripe rust and Southern rust.

Solatenol will be offered to growers as Aprovia® fungicide in apples, grapes and pears. In fruiting vegetables and cucurbits, Syngenta will sell Aprovia® Top fungicide, a product combining Solatenol fungicide and difenoconazole, one of the leading triazoles in the world.

Elatus® fungicide, a combination of Solatenol fungicide and azoxystrobin, provides peanut growers with the disease control they need to maximize yield potential and their return on investment. Elatus will also be sold as an in-furrow product for improved disease control in potatoes.
