Jul 19, 2007Syngenta Names Two New Fungicides
Syngenta Crop Protection announced brand names for its newest fungicides, both of which target diseases which often develop on vegetables and fruits during the growing season. These two products, as well as other new technologies and best practices, will be shown at Syngenta plot tours taking place this summer and fall.
Revus, a foliar fungicide, is intended for use as a preventive spray against downy mildew diseases on lettuce, brassica crops, onions, grapes and cucurbits. Revus Top will control late blight and early blight on potatoes and tomatoes. The fungicide bonds to the wax layer of plants, providing Revus and Revus mixtures consistent disease control even under extreme weather conditions.
The second of the new fungicides, Inspire, uses a triazole mixture proven effective in other countries. Inspire and Inspire mixtures will provide broad spectrum control of leaf spots and powdery mildews while acting as resistance management tools in the pome fruit and vegetable industries.
The Knowledge Exchange Site plot tours are being held nationwide. The events are designed to bring growers, pest control advisors and other key influencers together with Syngenta personnel to foster a true educational and informational exchange.
