Syngenta gets EPA approval for Solatenol fungicide

Syngenta said Monday its succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide Solatenol has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The first significant sales in the U.S. are expected in the 2016 season.

Solatenol has already been launched in Latin America as Elatus, offering growers a solution for soybean rust, a devastating disease which can significantly impact yields. It achieved sales of more than $300 million in its first year in Brazil.

In the U.S., those products 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.

Solatenol has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance since it is the market’s most effective SDHI chemistry offering broad-spectrum control of damaging foliar diseases and soil pathogens as well as significant resistance management benefits.Regulatory approvals are pending in several markets, including the European Union.

Syngenta is an agriculture company helping to improve global food security by enabling farmers to make better use of available resources.
