The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed to approve the new fungicidal active ingredient benzovindiflupyr and registration of Syngenta’s Elatus Ace Fungicide.
Syngenta Australia Pty Ltd has applied to the APVMA for registration of the new product Elatus Ace Fungicide, containing 250 g/L propiconazole and 40 g/L benzovindifupyr, as an emulsifiable concentrate.
Benzovindiflupyr is a preventative fungicide belonging to the pyrazolcarboxamide chemical class. Elatus Ace Fungicide is proposed for the control of certain fungal diseases in wheat and barley. It is applied at the first sign of disease. Depending on the disease being targeted, this may be during tillering or stem elongation. A repeat spray 21 to 28 days later may be required.
Elatus Ace Fungicide is currently registered in Argentina for use in barley and wheat. Registrations in Turkey and Uruguay (use in wheat and barley) are pending and there are plans to register Elatus Ace Fungicide in Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay for use in cereals.
100g/L benzovindiflupyr emulsifiable concentrate products are registered for use in Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Sweden and United Kingdom for use in cereal crops such as barley, rye, triticale, wheat, oats and spelt. In Canada this formulation is registered for use in a large number of crops including barley and wheat and in the USA for a large number of crops including cereals.
A wettable granule formulation containing 150 g/kg benzovindiflupyr + 300 g/kg azoxystrobin is registered in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Paraguay, USA and Uruguay for use predominantly in wheat, barley, soybean and corn.
