Syngenta UK Limited has received UK approval for its new SDHI-based fungicide seed treatment, Vibrance Duo.
The approval, which covers use on seed of winter wheat, winter triticale, winter rye and spring oats, marks the first UK registration for the company’s all-new SDHI seed treatment active ingredient, sedaxane, explains Mark Bullen, seeds and seedcare campaign manager for Syngenta. In Vibrance Duo, sedaxane is combined with the well-known seed treatment, fludioxonil, as found in Beret Gold, Mr Bullen points out.
“The key benefit of this new seed treatment technology is that trials have not only shown outstanding control of diseases that reduce crop establishment, but also improvements in crop rooting power,” explains Mr Bullen.
A full launch of Vibrance Duo is planned over coming months, at which further information will be provided.
