Syngenta Canada announces the launch of Miravis®, a lineup of five fungicide products designed to protect crops against several of the most destructive diseases facing Canadian farmers.
Miravis® fungicides are built with ADEPIDYN®, a new Group 7 fungicide belonging to the carboxamide chemical class.
The unique chemical structure of ADEPIDYN® delivers powerful 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® fungicides are registered in Canada on multiple crops – including wheat, canola, pulses, corn, and fruit and vegetable crops through five distinct brands:
Miravis® Ace – wheat
Developed for spring, winter and durum wheat, Miravis® Ace fungicide brings together propiconazole (Group 3) and a new mode of action with ADEPIDYN® fungicide to manage Fusarium head blight. Miravis® Ace is effective on all significant Fusarium species, with strong preventative activity that protects grain from infection and loss of grade.
Miravis® Neo – corn, chickpeas and field peas
Miravis® Neo is a combination of technical fungicides ADEPIDYN®, azoxystrobin (Group 11) and propiconazole (Group 3). It offers superior control of the broadest range of foliar corn diseases – including grey leaf spot and northern corn leaf blight – and also suppresses Fusarium and Gibberella ear rots through a new mode of action.
Miravis® Neo is also registered in field peas and chickpeas as the first three-mode of action foliar fungicide for pulse crops. It provides preventative, long-lasting protection against key diseases such as Ascochyta and Mycosphaerella blight.
Miravis® Bold – canola
Miravis® Bold contains technical fungicide ADEPIDYN® and delivers consistent, long-lasting control of Sclerotinia, one of the most destructive diseases in canola. Miravis® Bold also boasts the widest application window for a Sclerotinia fungicide, bringing more flexibility to a farmer’s operation.
Miravis® Duo – cucurbit and fruiting vegetables
Miravis® Duo brings together technical fungicides ADEPIDYN® and difenoconazole (Group 3) for the broadest disease control label in cucurbit and fruiting vegetables. Miravis® Duo is designed to help growers manage early blight, powdery mildew and Alternaria leaf spot in addition to several other important diseases.
Miravis® Prime – grapes
Miravis® Prime combines technical fungicides 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.
“Miravis® fungicides will provide growers the confidence to grow their best crop with an advanced level of protection in place,” says Phillips.
Syngenta will begin introducing the Miravis® fungicide lineup in parts of Canada in 2020.
