Syngenta Launches Isopyrazam With First Registration In The UK

BASEL, Switzerland, March 31 --
  • Broad spectrum fungicide with new mode of action
  • Applications on multiple crops; initial launch on cereals
  • Complements Syngenta's world-leading fungicide portfolio

Syngenta announced today the first European registration of the new fungicide isopyrazam, which is expected to enhance significantly its market position, notably in cereals.

Isopyrazam will deliver outstanding performance on a wide range of diseases in many crops. Registrations will be sought globally for fruits and vegetables as well as for cereals.

John Atkin, Chief Operating Officer of Syngenta Crop Protection, said: "This initial launch in barley will set new standards of disease control and yield response, improving grower profitability. Isopyrazam will play an important role in reinforcing Syngenta's global leadership in fungicides."

Isopyrazam will be sold in the UK on winter and spring barley, under the brand BONTIMA®, for use in the 2010 season.
