In conjunction with the brand launch, the company also introduced Zorvec® Encantia® fungicide - a new international award-winning disease control product with a favourable environmental profile - to Myanmar's vegetable farmers.
Corteva represents the combined strengths of DuPont Crop Protection, Pioneer and Dow AgroSciences, which listed on the New York Stock Exchange on June 1, 2019, creating a market-shaping, standalone, pure-play agriculture company with leading positions in Seed Technologies, Crop Protection and Digital Agriculture.
Ms Farra Siregar, Managing Director of ASEAN, Corteva Agriscience, said, "Corteva Agriscience brings together three businesses with deep connections and dedication to generations of farmers. With a balanced portfolio of agriculture solutions, 200 years of combined agronomic expertise and an unparalleled innovation engine, we aim to catalyze action with all stakeholders in the food system to champion inclusive agriculture and to help ensure a secure supply of healthy and sustainable food for Myanmar and the rest of this region. We are committed to contributing our agronomic expertise and technical capabilities to support Myanmar's farmers, as well as working with all stakeholders in the food system to strengthen food security."
"We are pleased to bring to Myanmar farmers our new multi award-winning disease control solution Zorvec® Encantia®, a fungicide which offers an outstanding new mode of action in controlling diseases that are resistant to other products in the market," said Ms Rachel Lomibao, Country Head of Myanmar, Corteva Agriscience. "This demonstrates our continued commitment to bringing the latest and most relevant farming technologies to help farmers grow better. With Zorvec® Encantia®, Corteva intends to re-shape how farmers grow their vegetables by helping them protect their yields especially during challenging weather conditions," she added.
Zorvec® Encantia® is based on Zorvec® active (oxathiapiprolin), which is the first member of a novel class of fungicides to control diseases caused by oomycete pathogens. Zorvec® offers an unmatched combination of consistency and longer-lasting disease control, helping farmers yield healthier crops. It can be used every season to attain better crop yields, even in challenging conditions.
