Two new fungicides introduced to protect sugarbeets

SipcamAdvan, based in North Carolina, has introduced two new fungicides for 2015: Minerva and Minerva Duo, intended to combat diseases that can potentially damage sugarbeet crops.

The two products are designed to offer rapid and lasting protection against both Cercospora Leaf Spot and Powdery Mildew.

Minerva, described as an aggressive systemic fungicide, acts by pooling in the plant’s crown area to protect new growth. Minerva Duo is a premix that combines Tetraconazole, the primary ingredient in Minerva, with Triphenyltin hydroxide to provide the ideal amount of protection in one application. Additionally, Minerva Duo meets current University Extension Service resistance guidelines. Both products are suitable for application on the ground, aerially or via chemigation techniques.

SipcamAdvan is a part of the international network of companies that make up the Sipcam Oxon Group, an Italian company recognized for its formulation and manufacturing expertise. Since 1986, Sipcam has offered traditional chemistries to its customers; now, it is expanding its product line by serving as a launch platform for new technologies.

The company uses a distribution-focused marketing strategy to provide traditional chemical and biorational products to the agriculture, turf, ornamental, organic and home and garden markets. It is headquartered in Durham, North Carolina, in the Research Triangle Park area.

Sipcam also participates in the Pest Control and Industrial Biocide markets with its wholly owned subsidiary, Sostram Corporation. Sostram produces and markets pest control products and industrial biocides via both traditional and green products.
