May 7, 2020Syngenta announces new nematicide/fungicide technology
Syngenta has announced a Tymirium, a new novel nematicide and fungicide technology platform under development for seed- and soil-applied usage.
Tymirium is based on the active ingredient cyclobutrifluram. It provides long-lasting protection against a broad spectrum of nematode pests and diseases across all major crops and geographies. Nematodes not only attack crops but also open a path to further fungal infection. Tymirium technology offers strong control of both nematodes and soil-borne diseases, especially Fusarium species.
By protecting the root mass, the technology plays a critical part in enabling no-tillage and conservation-tillage practices.
“We are investing significantly in soil health at Syngenta, and the development of the Tymirium technology is a major step forward in this space,” said Jon Parr, President, Global Crop Protection. “It will give farmers the freedom to maximize their yields without having to compromise on sustainability.”
The first launches of Tymirium products are planned for Latin America in 2021-22. Further registrations across a broad range of crops world-wide are expected over the next five years.
