Orondis Ultra now in premix

Syngenta Canada has announced that Orondis Ultra fungicide is now available in premix formulation.

 

- Premix formulation provides convenience and ease of use

- Now registered for aerial application in potatoes

- Two active ingredients provide highly effective late blight control in potatoes

Syngenta Canada Inc. is pleased to announce Orondis Ultra fungicide is now available in a premix formulation for added convenience and ease of use.

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).

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.

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.

“Weather conditions in-season can create the conditions needed for late blight to develop and thrive,” explains Eric Phillips, product lead, fungicides and insecticides, with Syngenta Canada. “The new Orondis Ultra premix formulation helps make proactive late blight management more convenient for growers.”

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.
