Syngenta’s Trivapro fungicide has farmers excited for the upcoming corn, soybean and wheat growing seasons after the release of first-year trial results show the potential for maximized yield and profit.
Midwest and South trials, which were strained because of heavier than normal disease pressure last year, resulted in high returns when Trivapro was used.
“Everyone knows heavy disease pressure took its toll on corn, soybean and wheat yields in 2015, even those treated with competitive fungicide brands,” Andrew Fisher, fungicide brand manager at Syngenta, said. “Yet, in our Trivapro trials, we consistently saw significant yield results.”
Trivapro uses the active ingredient Solatenol fungicide that is considered the most potent SDHI available. Along with Solatenol, azoxystrobin and propiconazole help Trivapro give growers better than normal protection against rusts, leaf spots and blights.
“We saw intense disease pressure in Illinois corn trials that greatly compromised unprotected crops and those treated with competitive brands, leading to premature plant death,” Scott Cully, Syngenta agronomy service representative, said. “With Trivapro, the plants remained green and alive approximately one to three weeks longer, and the stalks were noticeably stronger. This allowed more time for grain fill as well as improved grain quality and harvestability at the end of the season.”
