Syngenta gets EPA registration of fungicide Adepidyn

Syngenta’s latest carboxamide fungicide (SDHI mode of action) – Adepidyn – has been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Formulated in five products under the Miravis brand family, Syngenta will make Adepidyn fungicide broadly available in the U.S. in late 2018 and 2019, subject to state approvals. Containing unmatched potency within the carboxamide class of chemistry, each product in the Miravis range will set a new standard for disease control and potential ROI.

“Adepidyn fungicide is the third new fungicide Syngenta has brought to market in the last three years, in keeping with our commitment to provide growers with the tools they need to help make their operations more efficient and profitable,” said Steve Eury, fungicide product marketing lead at Syngenta. “With Adepidyn fungicide we have applied our expertise in fungicide development to combine the best features of previous products into a single active ingredient, delivering a more complete combination of power, spectrum and stamina.”

The Miravis product line has been designed for exceptional performance against the most difficult-to-control diseases to benefit growers by:

  • Providing the most powerful activity among all chemical classes against leaf spots and powdery mildew
  • Offering high efficacy against difficult-to-control diseases where growers have limited options, including botrytis, sclerotinia and corynespora, which cause significant yield loss in crops as diverse as grapes, peanuts andpotatoes
  • Delivering groundbreaking control of Fusarium head blight (head scab) in wheat

The Miravis line of products will be offered to growers in a wide range of crops, from corn and soybeans, to wheat, peanuts, grapes, vegetables and potatoes through five distinct brands.

Miravis Prime – Specialty and vegetable crops

Miravis Prime fungicide will be marketed for use on grapes, potatoes, cucurbits and fruiting vegetables. Miravis Prime provides excellent performance in spray programs for several difficult-to-control, economically damaging diseases including Botrytis in grapes, early blight in potatoes and gummy stem blight in vegetables.

Regardless of which Miravis brand growers use, they can expect to benefit from the visibly powerful performance enabled by Adepidyn fungicide.

“As we’ve developed the Miravis brands in the U.S., what has stood out in hundreds of trials is how powerfully and consistently they perform regardless of crop or geography,” Eury said. “It’s going to be very satisfying to show our grower customers what these new products can do for them.”
