Corteva Agriscience announced the expansion of its fungicide portfolio in Canada with the launch of Viatude™ fungicide, a new solution to protect against sclerotinia in canola and white mould in soybeans.

Viatude fungicide offers multiple modes of action for resistance management and contains a unique combination of two highly effective active ingredients that includes Onmira™ active, which provides holistic and long-lasting coverage.
