Syngenta has announced the trade name for its newest fungicide Orondis which contains the active ingredient oxathiapiprolin.
A Syngenta press release says Orondis offers a highly effective approach to disease management.
Growers will soon have an opportunity to experience good protection against economically devastating diseases, including late blight, downy mildews, and root and stem rots witnessed in field trials.
- A new mode of action (FRAC Group U15) with no known cross-resistance to other products;
- Systemic, translaminar movement and redistribution to protect developing leaves;
- Excellent preventive fungicidal activity;
- Rainfastness within 30 minutes of application;
- Flexible application methods and tank mix compatibility;
- Efficacy at very low active ingredient rates and demonstrated crop safety; and
- The ability to act as a foundation fungicide in integrated pest management programs.
Syngenta says Orondis brings a paradigm shift in Oomycete disease control with 10-100 times lower active ingredient rate and consistent efficacy.
Syngenta is seeking Orondis product registration for use on vegetables, potatoes, and tobacco.
If granted, Orondis fungicide would offer U.S. growers effective control of economically important soil and foliar diseases caused by Oomycete fungi in vegetables, potatoes, and tobacco.
