Australian Authority to Greenlight Syngenta Fungicide
ChemChina reported that the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) will approve the registration of Syngenta’s foliage fungicide MIRAVIS in April 2018.
MIRAVIS is Syngenta’s new foliar fungicide for preventing black shank and white spot diseases of canola, and its active ingredient is ADEPIDYN (pydiflumetofen). It is the first SDHI (succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor) fungicide under the new chemical group – FRAC Group 7.
Angus Rutherford, head of Syngenta products, says the new fungicide is expected to bring significant benefits to Australian canola growers. MIRAVIS greatly surpasses current industry standards in the prevention and control of black shank disease. Local tests show that, in comparison with Prosaro and Aviator Xpro, the yield can increase by 10% to 15%, with growers’ input-output ratio significantly increased.
MIRAVIS has excellent surface tension, rapid absorption and great dispersibility in plants, which can provide efficient and long-term protection under different conditions.
