ADAMA, a global crop protection producer, has introduced SORATEL, a new fungicide engineered to protect Canada’s most important crops from disease. Soratel is registered for use on canola for Sclerotinia control, wheat and barley for Fusarium, and a variety of other crops and diseases. Soratel contains the active ingredient prothioconazole and is powered by the new ASORBITAL formulation technology, a novel, proprietary formulation technology that delivers improved penetration efficiency and systemic movement in the plant.

Asorbital formulation technology combines a unique mix of solvents and surfactants that helps increase efficacy while reducing environmental impact. This means more protection can get into the plant faster, with less run off and environmental degradation. According to ADAMA, with Mother Nature being so unpredictable, and the spraying window being so small, this technology is a breakthrough for Canadian farmers.

“Soratel provides preventative and corrective activity against disease infections, and as it is a pre-mixed formulation there is no need to add an external adjuvant,” says Cornie Thiessen, general manager with ADAMA Canada, in a press release.

Soratel will not be combined with any grower programs or bundled offers in order to make it a simple, economical choice for everyone who wishes to use it. To learn more and/or to see the full portfolio of ADAMA fungicides, visit adama.com/canada/en/crop-protection/fungicides/soratel
