EPA Approves Syngenta's Vibrance Fungicide for More Crops

EPA Approves Syngenta's Vibrance Fungicide for More Crops

Approval allows Vibrance use in 30 additional crops

Syngenta Monday announced it has received federal registration for Vibrance seed treatment fungicide for more than 30 additional crops, including corn.

Vibrance contains sedaxane, which is from the SDHI class of fungicides and is Syngenta's first active ingredient developed specifically for use as a seed treatment.

The chemistry provides strong soil mobility and enhances biotic/abiotic stress management. This results in stronger roots.

EPA approval allows Vibrance use in 30 additional crops

In field corn, Vibrance will be sold in combination with Maxim Quattro seed treatment fungicide. Maxim Quattro currently combines the active ingredients mefenoxam, fludioxonil, azoxystrobin and thiabendazole. With the addition of sedaxane, the Vibrance/Maxim Quattro combination will provide strong Rhizoctonia activity.

In addition to field corn, Vibrance received EPA approval for sweet corn, popcorn and forage corn, as well as sorghum and dry beans. The EPA previously approved Vibrance for use on cereals, soybeans and canola.

Vibrance is already available as part of the following solutions: Avicta Complete Beans applied with Vibrance, and CruiserMaxx Beans applied with Vibrance in soybeans, CruiserMaxx Vibrance Cereals and Vibrance Extreme in cereals, and Helix Xtra applied with Vibrance in canola.
