Syngenta receives first isopyrazam product approval
Syngenta has been granted its first approval of a fungicide based on its new active ingredient, isopyrazam, which the company trade marks as IZM. The UK Chemicals Regulation Directorate registered the combination fungicide, Bontima (isopyrazam 62.5 g/litre + cyprodinil 187.5 g/litre) earlier this month for use on barley to control “all major foliar diseases”. The company aims to introduce the product for the 2011 season. Isopyrazam is an SDH respiration inhibitor and was granted provisional approval for use on wheat and barley in January.
