Jan 13, 2022Archive, a fungicide from Syngenta, helps save potato harvest
Potato growers facing post-harvest diseases now have a new option for protection during storage. Archive fungicide from Syngenta preserves potato quality in post-harvest.
“Archive is a powerful pre-mix fungicide that will help growers combat the major storage pathogens that threaten their crop,” Heather Ambuehl, postharvest lead at Syngenta, said in a news release. “This postharvest tool is one growers can incorporate into their decay management strategy.”
This broad-spectrum fungicide, now registered for use in potatoes, combines two unique modes of action for more broad-spectrum disease control and built-in resistance management. Fludioxonil and azoxystrobin fungicides deliver proven, robust protection against silver scurf and fusarium dry rot diseases – pathogens that are of particular concern while potatoes are in storage.
Fludioxonil (FRAC Group 12) is a phenylpyrrole fungicide that provides proven control of some of the most difficult-to-treat storage diseases, such as fusarium dry rot. Azoxystrobin, a Qol fungicide (FRAC 11), effective against all four classes of fungi, brings another mode of action against Fusarium, and provides control of silver scurf.
