Syngenta launches new foliar fungicide
By Top Crop Manager
March 7, 2016, Ontario – Syngenta Canada has launched Trivapro, a new three-mode-of-action foliar fungicide that will help growers in Eastern Canada target a broad spectrum of major leaf diseases in corn, soybeans, and cereals.
Trivapro is the first foliar fungicide to feature three unique modes of action – azoxystrobin (Group 11), propiconazole (Group 3), and benzovindiflupyr (Group 7 SDHI), known as Solatenol – with each mode of action providing different activity on labelled diseases, and also contributing to the product’s effectiveness as a resistance management tool.
Syngenta field trials have shown Trivapro offers long-lasting residual control of diseases. Solatenol, a key component in Trivapro, does not metabolize as quickly as other active ingredients. This, in combination with the gradual, translaminar movement of Trivapro, makes it ideal for tassel applications in corn, as the active ingredients remain in the plant canopy to provide extended leaf disease control.
The three active ingredients in Trivapro also allow for a wider window of application. Applied early, its long-lasting residual control helps ensure crops are protected late into the season. However, if applied after the onset of disease, the product’s curative activity helps halt further disease development and protect yield potential.
Trivapro has demonstrated strong activity on challenging corn leaf diseases in Canada, such as Northern corn leaf blight (NCLB), grey leaf spot (Cercospora zeae-maydis), and rust (Puccinia sorghi), according to a company press release.
For wheat, oats and barley, Trivapro controls several major rusts, including leaf rust (Puccinia hordei), stem rust (P. graminis), stripe rust (P. striiformis), as well as Septoria leaf blotch (Septoria tritici), powdery mildew (Erysiphe graminis), and tan spot (Pyrenophora tritici-repentis).
In soybeans, Trivapro controls Septoria brown spot (Septoria glycines), Asian soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi), frogeye leaf spot (Cercospora sojina), and pod and stem blight (Diaporthe phaseolorum).
Trivapro will be available for purchase in Spring 2016.
