Syngenta receives registration for Solatenol fungicide

September 4, 2015  By Press release

September 4, 2015, Guelph, Ont – Syngenta Canada Inc. recently announced that its first succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) foliar fungicide, benzovindiflupyr – known by the general name Solatenol fungicide – has received registration from Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

Solatenol fungicide is now registered for use in Canada across a wide variety of horticultural and field crops.

According to Syngenta, Solatenol fungicide offers Canadian growers an option for disease control through several features and benefits, including:

  • High potency at lower active ingredient rates compared to other SDHI products, delivering long-lasting, reliable disease control
  • Broad-spectrum control of yield and quality-robbing foliar diseases and soil pathogens, including rusts, Septoria, apple scab, powdery mildew and Rhizoctonia
  • Flexible application timing and tank-mix compatibility for optimum crop safety and resistance management benefits
  • Excellent preventative fungicidal activity that delivers consistent performance under a wide variety of conditions

Solatenol will be part of three new fungicide products expected to hit the market Spring 2016.

Solatenol will be offered to growers of pome fruits and blueberries as Aprovia fungicide. Aprovia provides long-lasting, foliar disease control of apple scab, powdery mildew, and Alternaria blotch in pome fruits, as well as leaf rust in blueberries, via translaminar movement through the plant tissue. Aprovia, which will come in a convenient solo formulation, can also be tank-mixed with a number of other products.

In corn, soybeans and wheat, Solatenol will be marketed as Trivapro fungicide, a product that combines the power of three distinct active ingredients – benzovindiflupyr (Solatenol), azoxystrobin and propiconazole – to provide preventative, curative, and long-lasting protection against the most common leaf diseases and rusts.

“Growers can expect a step change in disease control when they use products containing Solatenol fungicide,” said Eric Phillips, product lead for fungicides and insecticides with Syngenta Canada. “This registration exemplifies our commitment to developing innovative crop protection products to help growers maximize their profit potential.”
