Syngenta Canada announced today three new additions to their Miravis fungicide lineup, including one for Sclerotinia stem rot management in canola.

Miravis Bold fungicide provides growers with a new tool for managing Sclerotinia stem rot – one of canola’s most destructive diseases. Miravis Bold is formulated with Adepidyn, a Group 7 fungicide, which is highly active on the Sclerotinia pathogen.

A key feature of Miravis Bold is that it offers a very wide application window. The product can be applied as early as 10 per cent through to 50 per cent bloom. This gives growers critical additional 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.”

The new fungicides added by Syngenta Canada also include Miravis Duo for potatoes and several speciality crops and an expansion of the Miravis Prime label to include additional horticulture crops.
