This week, Syngenta announced Miravis™ fungicide as the brand name for the fungicide product line containing the new active ingredient, Adepidyn™ fungicide, which is currently under regulatory review.
As the first member of a new chemical group within the carboxamide class, Adepidyn fungicide marks the latest disease control innovation from Syngenta. Aiming to tame some of the most destructive diseases growers encounter, Syngenta leveraged global resources and expertise to design a highly effective active ingredient with multiple benefits. Upon regulatory approval, the Miravis fungicide family of products is expected to directly benefit growers by:
- Providing the most activity amongst all chemical classes against leaf spots and powdery mildew. Combined, these two groups of pathogens are among the most common growers face.
- Offering high efficacy against difficult-to-control diseases where growers have limited options, including Botrytis, Sclerotinia and Corynespora, which cause significant yield loss in crops as diverse as grapes, peanuts and potatoes.
- Delivering groundbreaking control of Fusarium, including Fusarium head blight (head scab) in cereals.
