Syngenta Crop Protection announced brand names for its newest fungicides, both of which target diseases which often develop on vegetables and fruits during the growing season. These two products, as well as other new technologies and best practices, were showcased at nationwide Knowledge Exchange Site plot tours held throughout the summer and into the fall.
Revus™, a new foliar fungicide, is intended for use as a preventive spray against downy mildew diseases on lettuce, brassica crops, onions, grapes and cucurbits. Revus Top™ will control late blight and early blight on potatoes and tomatoes. Due to the ability to bond quickly to the wax layer of plants, Revus and Revus mixtures offer consistent disease control even under extreme weather conditions.
The second of the new fungicides, Inspire®, uses a triazole mixture proven effective in other countries. Inspire and Inspire mixtures will provide broad spectrum control of leaf spots and powdery mildews while acting as resistance management tools in the pome fruit and vegetable industries.
“The development of Revus and Inspire reflect the Syngenta commitment to continually meeting the specific needs of growers, both now and in the coming years, in order to enhance the way they farm,” said David Laird, Syngenta fungicide brand manager.
Revus, Revus Top and Inspire are not currently registered for use or sale in the United States.
The Knowledge Exchange Site plot tours were held nationwide. The events were designed to bring growers, pest control advisors and other key influencers together with Syngenta personnel to foster a true educational and informational exchange.
“By giving our customers the opportunity to preview the technical and performance aspects of Revus and Inspire prior to U.S. registration, Syngenta is able to gain the feedback required to better meet grower needs,” said Laird.
