Syngenta launches Exempla fungicide for sclerotinia control
By Top Crop Manager
Nov. 17, 2015 - Syngenta Canada Inc. has launched of Exempla, a new fungicide designed to help canola growers in Western Canada manage sclerotinia stem rot – one of the most destructive diseases affecting this crop.
Exempla is a liquid, pre-mix formulation that delivers both preventative and curative activity via two modes of action – difenoconazole (Group 3) and azoxystrobin (Group 11) – and is also part of an effective resistance management strategy.
Growers can also take advantage of the fungicide's flexible application timing, which supports spraying by ground or air between 20 per cent and 50 per cent flowering.
In large-scale field trials conducted by Syngenta, Exempla proved to have very good activity on sclerotinia under a variety of conditions and disease severities.
In addition to sclerotinia control, Exempla is also registered for control of blackleg and alternaria black spot – both of which are important canola diseases that can affect seed quality and cause significant yield losses.
Exempla will be available for purchase in dpring 2016.
