EPA approves Syngenta fungicide

Syngenta's SDHI fungicide Solatenol has received registration from EPA. First significant sales in the United States are expected in the 2016 season.

Solatenol has already been launched in Latin America as ELATUS, offering growers performance against soybean rust, a devastating disease which can significantly impact yields. In the United States, products containing Solatenol will be available for a wide range of crops including corn, soybean, wheat, peanuts, potatoes and vegetables. SDHI chemistry is an important component of Syngenta’s $3.6 billion crop protection pipeline.

Syngenta COO Davor Pisk said: “U.S. growers can expect a steep change in disease control from our range of Solatenol products. These valuable new tools demonstrate our commitment to producing sustainable innovations that help growers combat diseases while maximizing their returns.”

Regulatory approvals are pending in several markets, including the EU. For more information, visit Syngenta's home page.
