Syngenta revealed exclusively to AgroPages the launch of the fungicide Orondis Ultra in Portugal.

According to the manufacturer, the product is ″a giant step in the prevention of downy mildew″ in tomatoes – which is a very vital crop for the country.

The company confirmed to AgroPages its ambition to continue to be the ″reference in the industrial tomato market″.


The new Orondis Ultra is a specific fungicide against downy mildews (oomycetes) because it contains mandipropamide and oxathiapiproline. The latter is an active substance from a new chemical group with a new mode of action.

According to Syngenta, this dual technology works synergistically, effectively protecting leaves, fruits, and new tomato plants even at very low doses (12-20 grams/hectare/year).

Combining the mode of action of the two active substances, Orondis Ultra acts translaminarly on plant leaves with a systemic effect, resisting washout by rain from 1 hour after application.


″It is an excellent tool to integrate into a fungal resistance management strategy,″recommends the manufacturer.

According to them, applications of Orondis Ultra must be carried out preventively, from vegetative development to the beginning of maturation, with an interval of 7 to 10 days.

″Orondis Ultra is a diamond that we place in the hands of the farmer, with its young and powerful molecule – oxathiapiproline – and, therefore, we must preserve its effectiveness, always positioning it in a preventive way,″ explains Nuno Zibaia, Technical Manager Syngenta Customer Account for Ribatejo.


Syngenta holds a 20% market share in tomato crop protection solutions for the industry in Portugal.

″Our portfolio of solutions responds to market needs, we have the best team and business partners. We want to continue to be the reference in tomatoes for the industry″, says Paulo Machado, Commercial Director of Syngenta in Portugal and Galicia.

In industrial tomato technical conferences carried out by Syngenta, the results of a spraying test were revealed, in which it was concluded that a 25% reduction in the volume of syrup, with the same dose of active substance, does not affect the effectiveness of plant protection products applied, and even so the environmental impact is reduced.
