The new Segovis fungicide has received federal registration from the Environmental Protection Agency. 

The Syngenta brand raises the standard for control of downy mildew and Phytophthora spp. on ornamentals crops, trees and shrubs in greenhouses, outdoor nurseries, shade and lath houses, retail nurseries and commercial landscapes.

“Its long-lasting protection and reliable performance make Segovis a critical tool for controlling downy mildew and Phytophthora spp.,” Howard Jaekle, fungicide brand manager for Syngenta, said. “With a new active ingredient, growers can better manage resistance concerns by using Segovis in rotation programs, especially those focused on preventing impatiens downy mildew, which is still problematic for many operations.”

The fungicide saves growers money while providing extra benefits like four-hour restricted entry interval and signal word on the label, as well as excellent partnership with other fungicides to better control downy mildew and Phytophthora spp. It can be applied as a follar spray or drench.

“Segovis has shown excellent performance controlling both aerial and soil-borne Phytophthora as well as many diseases caused by downy mildew fungi,” Nancy Rechcigl, Syngenta's field technical manager, said. “Its new mode of action and strong systemic movement allow Segovis to provide extended protection against these key diseases.”
