Syngenta Canada launched Miravis, a lineup of five fungicide products that can be used on wheat, canola, pulses, corn, and fruit and vegetable crops.

The products contain the adepidyn fungicide, a new active ingredient from Syngenta and a Group 7 fungicide belonging to the carboxamide chemical class.

The chemical structure of adepidyn, according to Syngenta, protects against a broad range of key diseases, including Fusarium head blight, Alternaria leaf spot, Aschochyta, Sclerotinia and Botrytis.

Two brands are of interest to fruit and vegetable growers: Miravis Duo and Miravis Prime.

Miravis Duo brings together technical fungicides adepidyn and difenoconazole (Group 3) for the broadest disease control label in cucurbit and fruiting vegetables. The fungicide is designed to help growers manage early blight, powdery mildew and Alternaria leaf spot in addition to several other important diseases.

Miravis Prime combines adepidyn and fludioxonil (Group 12) for effective control of Botrytis grey mould, a disease that can cause severe yield losses and substantially reduce quality in grapes.

Syngenta says they will begin introducing the Miravis fungicide lineup in parts of Canada in 2020.
