Syngenta receives EPA approval for Orondis fungicide

Syngenta recently announced that Orondis fungicide is now approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use as the first fungicide in the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) Group U15.

Pending state registrations, Orondis is expected to be available for the 2016 season.

The fungicide contains the active ingredient oxathiapiprolin and offers a new mode of action for outstanding control of economically important soil and foliar diseases caused by Oomycete fungi in vegetables, potatoes and tobacco. 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.

Orondis will be marketed as three multi-packs of separately registered products to customers:
• Orondis and Ridomil Gold fungicide for control of soil-borne Oomycete diseases in vegetables and tobacco. 
• Orondis and Bravo fungicide for control of downy mildew and late blight in potatoes and vegetables. 
• Orondis and Revus fungicide for control of downy mildew and late blight in leafy vegetables, potatoes, tobacco and other vegetables.
  
Premix products will be developed combining these products and, when approved by the EPA and states, will be sold under the following brand names: Orondis Gold fungicide (Orondis and Ridomil Gold); Orondis Opti fungicide (Orondis and Bravo); and Orondis Ultra fungicide (Orondis and Revus).
