DuPont Zorvec now registered in the U.S.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted registration approval for a new DuPont disease control active ingredient, oxathiapiprolin, which DuPont Crop Protection will market under the trademark Zorvec.

DuPont Zorvec is the first member of a new class of fungicides which represents a step change improvement in disease control for growers of potatoes, grapes, vegetables and other specialty crops, according to the company.

“DuPont Zorvec has unique properties which will deliver visible results for growers. It will change everything about the way farmers view disease control,” said Rik Miller, president of DuPont Crop Protection. “Zorvec is another powerful tool from DuPont Crop Protection’s discovery pipeline that will help address the challenge of producing high-quality crops to feed a growing world population.”

Pending regulatory approval, DuPont Crop Protection plans on launching DuPont Zorvec disease control in several countries including Mexico, China, and Australia later this year.

Through a previous agreement, DuPont has granted a license to Syngenta to develop products containing DuPont’s fungicide oxathiapiprolin. Under the terms, Syngenta will receive exclusive rights for foliar and soil uses on all crops in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
