The liquid fungicide is a pre-mix formulation with three modes of action. Vibrance Ultra Potato combines difenoconazole (Group 3), sedaxane (Group 7), and mandipropamid (Group 40). It protects potato seed pieces and seedlings to help ensure strong stand establishment as well as supresses pink rot to help prevent breakdown in storage. In addition, the fungicide controls late blight, Fusarium dry rot, seed-borne silver scurf and seed-borne black scurf, stem, and stolon canker.

“During the cutting and treating phase, it helps prevent the spread of seed‑borne late blight from infected seed to healthy seed. After planting, it moves within the plant, providing protection from diseases such as seed‑borne silver scurf, Fusarium dry rot, and seed-borne black scurf, stem, and stolon canker (Rhizoctonia), as well as suppression of pink rot,” says Shaun Vey, Seedcare and Inoculants product lead with Syngenta Canada.

As per the label, Vibrance Ultra Potato should be applied at a rate of 32 mL/100 kg of seed. Each case contains 4 x 4.8 L + 4 x 0.8 L (colourant) jugs. One jug will treat 330.6 cwt.
