Miravis will be the brand name of Syngenta‘s new fungicide product line. It is the first in a new chemical group using the active ingredient, Adepidyn, to control some of the most destructive diseases.
Once regulatory approval is granted, the product can be used to fight against leaf spots and powdery mildew, offer high efficacy for crops with limited options, and deliver groundbreaking control of Fusarium and Fusarium head blight in cereals.
“Not only will Adepidyn fungicide provide exceptional control of common yield and quality limiting diseases, but it will also deliver crop enhancement benefits in row crops that growers have seen with our other products,” said Eric Tedford, technical product lead at Syngenta. “This chemistry and its performance in field trials has been impressive and I think growers will be excited when they see the Miravis family of products in action at our Grow More Experience sites in 2017.”
The company will announce multiple brands in the Miravis line after registration is received. Look for specific formulations for corn, soybeans, wheat, peanuts, potatoes, grapes and other crops in 2017.
