Syngenta launches co-pack of Apron Maxx with Intego

To aid in the control of seed- and soil-borne disease, Syngenta has released Apron Maxx with Intego
for western Canadian pulse growers.

“The Apron Maxx with Intego co-pack recognizes the growing concern around Aphanomyces among pulse growers,” Nathan Klages, Syngenta Canada's product lead for seedcare and inoculants, said. "Through this new, convenient offering, we’re addressing the need for management tools for Aphanomyces together with a broad-spectrum, disease-control program as part of a complete pulse Seedcare product.”

Apron Maxx with Intego controls soil-borne diseases including Aphanomyces, Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia. Aphanomyces, which affects field peas, chickpeas, dry bean and lentils, thrives on waterlogged soil. Researchers believe it is more prevalent because of increased wet weather on the prairies during the last few years.

The active ingredients in Apron Maxx, Fludioxinil and Metalaxyl-M fungicides, are designed to control seed rot both in the pre-emergence and post-emergence stages. Intego is a fungicide designed to control Pythium, the suppression of Aphanomyces and Phytophthora.

Apron Maxx will be packaged as two 10-liter  jugs of Apron Maxx with two 605-millileter containers of Intego. It will be available for purchase in time for the planting season.
