Syngenta launches Miravis fungicides

Miravis fungicide works to protect tomatoes against Alternaria leaf spot.

Syngenta Canada announces the launch of Miravis fungicides, two of which are targeted to horticulture. Miravis Duo is for cucurbit and fruiting vegetables while Miravis Prime is for grapes.

Miravis fungicides are built with Adepidyn, a new Group 7 fungicide belonging to the carboxamide chemical class. Adepidyn is the trademark for the active ingredient pydiflumetofen.

The unique chemical structure of the active ingredient delivers intrinsic activity and long-lasting protection against a broad range of key diseases, including Fusarium head blight, Alternaria leaf spot, Aschochyta, Sclerotinia and Botrytis.

“With each of our Miravis fungicide brands, we are providing farmers with highly effective tools to maximize crop quality and yield,” says Eric Phillips, fungicides and insecticides product lead with Syngenta Canada.

Miravis Duo is for cucurbit and fruiting vegetables, offering Adepidyn and difenoconazole (Group 3) for the broadest disease control label in cucurbit and fruiting vegetables. It is designed to help growers manage early blight, powdery mildew and Alternaria leaf spot in addition to several other important diseases through a SDHI mode of action.

Miravis Prime is for grapes, combining 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. The fungicide can be applied from bud break through veraison, giving growers the flexibility to make a first application at early bloom and a second, subsequent application if conditions favour Botrytis development later in the season.
