Orondis Ultra fungicide from Syngenta now available in premix formulation
Syngenta Canada Inc. has announced Orondis Ultra fungicide is now available in a premix formulation for added convenience.
Orondis Ultra combines mandipropamid (FRAC Group 40) with oxathiapiprolin (FRAC Group 49) to provide highly effective and preventative residual protection against late blight (Phytophthora infestans).
Previously, a case of Orondis Ultra contained two components – Orondis Ultra A and Orondis Ultra B – that required individual measuring and tank mixing. Now, the new premix formulation has a single product label, meaning the components no longer require mixing prior to use, and will be available in a 4 x 3.78 L case. This reduces complexity and product handling and also allows growers to cover more ground per case.
Orondis Ultra works through translaminar and acropetal activity, moving across the leaf surface as well as upwards into new growth via the plant's xylem, or water-conducting vessels. Both modes of action protect the plant during periods of active growth.
Orondis Ultra is now also registered for aerial application in potatoes, providing added convenience to growers looking to protect their crop from late blight.
In addition to potatoes, Orondis Ultra can be used on head and stem brassica vegetables, including broccoli and cabbage, bulb vegetables, such as onion and garlic, leafy vegetables, such as arugula and celery, and cucurbit vegetables, including cucumber and squash. See the Orondis UItra label for a complete list of crops and diseases.
Orondis Ultra will be available for purchase as a premix formulation for the 2018 season.
