against early blight.

“Potato growers have
long appreciated the disease control that Bravo delivers and have also long
recognized the advantages of zinc. Bravo ZN brings these benefits together,”
says Fernando Olea, brand manager of fungicides and insecticides with Syngenta
Canada
.

Like Bravo, Bravo ZN is
a broad-spectrum, contact fungicide offering protection against late blight,
Botrytis vine rot and early blight. It is an effective fungicide that should be
incorporated as the base of a preventative program. Bravo ZN includes the
unique WeatherStik™ technology, a surfactant technology from Syngenta, which
maximizes the product’s ability to stick to plant surfaces to better prevent
infection, even after heavy rainfall.

“Mitigating disease
pressure through a strong preventative fungicide program is a crucial component
of maximizing crop performance,” explains Tara McCaughey, technical crop
manager for Syngenta Canada.

For optimal convenience,
Bravo ZN is a liquid formulation, eliminating dust, improving mixability and
eradicating plugged nozzles. It will be available in 2011 in 10 L jugs and 450
L totes.
