New Fungicide for Late Blight

-

Syngenta has announced that Orondis fungicide has been approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first fungicide in the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee’s (FRAC) group U15. Pending state registrations, Orondis could be available for the 2016 season in the United States. Orondis contains the active ingredient oxathiapiprolin and offers a new mode of action for control of economically important soil and foliar diseases caused by oomycete fungi in potatoes and other crops. Syngenta secured a license to develop and market products containing oxathiapiprolin from DuPont in 2013 and has exclusive rights in North America for foliar and soil use on vegetables, potatoes, tobacco, and other specialty crops.
