Guelph, Ontario, Canada
- Miravis® Bold fungicide now available for Sclerotinia stem rot management in canola
- Miravis® Duo now registered in potatoes and several specialty crops
- Miravis® Prime label expanded to include additional horticulture crops
Syngenta Canada today announced key additions to the Miravis® fungicide product lineup that will help growers protect yield and quality in an even broader range of crops.
Miravis® Bold offers powerful, consistent Sclerotinia control in canola
Miravis® Bold fungicide provides growers with a new tool for managing Sclerotinia stem rot – one of the most destructive diseases in canola. Miravis® Bold is formulated with ADEPIDYN® fungicide (Group 7), which is highly active on the Sclerotinia pathogen.
A key feature of Miravis® Bold is that it boasts the widest Sclerotinia fungicide application window. The product can be applied as early as 10 per cent through to 50 per cent bloom. This gives growers critical, extra spray days so they can protect more acres.
“With Miravis® Bold, our aim is to bring more flexibility to a grower’s operation without compromising performance,” says Randy Retzlaff, Technical Lead with Syngenta Canada. “In addition, we have seen Miravis® Bold perform consistently – even under significant Sclerotinia pressure – so growers know they are being protected and can maximize yield.”
Miravis® Duo fungicide now registered on potatoes and specialty crops
Previously registered in several vegetable crops, Miravis® Duo can now help potato growers safeguard quality and yield against early blight, in addition to several other costly diseases.
At the core of Miravis® Duo is ADEPIDYN® fungicide along with difenoconazole (Group 3), which provides an added layer of protection and built-in resistance management.
Depending on their geography, potato growers can expect to make multiple in-season applications of a fungicide specifically targeting early blight. With every application of Miravis® Duo, growers can also control brown spot while protecting against Botrytis and white mould. Ongoing changes to the use pattern of multi-site fungicides also means a shift from traditional foliar disease management. The broad-spectrum activity of Miravis® Duo helps fill this gap and is the only non-chlorothalonil fungicide on the potato market offering activity against Botrytis.
“We believe that Miravis® Duo is going to help growers streamline and simplify their spray programs by being able to treat multiple costly threats with one product,” says Janette Stewart, National Horticulture Marketing Lead with Syngenta Canada.
In addition to potatoes, Miravis® Duo is now registered in bulb, root and brassica vegetables, along with ginseng and stone fruits.
Miravis® Prime label expanded to include additional horticulture crops
Initially registered in grapes and leafy greens, the new Miravis® Prime fungicide label expansion now encompasses strawberries and highbush blueberries.
Miravis® Prime combines ADEPIDYN® and fludioxonil (Group 12) for built-in resistance management and long-lasting control of key diseases, such as Botrytis fruit rot and Grey mould.
“Berries infected by fruit rot diseases can’t be sold, and decay often takes place during storage and transport,” explains Stewart. “Miravis® Prime provides a higher level of in-season disease protection as well as increased berry shelf-life compared to the standard fungicide program.”Source : Syngenta
