When FMC’s Lucento fungicide is approved for use later this year in corn, soybeans and peanuts, it will offer a new, effective tool for managing fungicide resistance.
“The first thing that sets Lucento apart is the triazole part of that chemistry, that flutriafol,” said FMC Technical Service Manager Matt Wiggins during a recent field day in Sparks, Georgia. “You’re getting the most systemic, longest-lasting residual triazole in the market.”
Wiggins says Lucento is flutriafol plus the SDHI bixafen, which adds additional leaf spot and rust control and helps control resistance. “Now we’re fighting those hard to control diseases with multiple modes of action and we’re seeing a pretty good yield boost with it,” Wiggins added.
Lucento is expected to receive approval by the end of this year to be available for growers in 2019. Learn more in this interview – Matt Wiggins, Technical Service Manager, FMC
