Syngenta debuts potato storage fungicide in Canada
Syngenta has introduced a post-harvest potato fungicide in Canada based on established active ingredients. Stadium (fludioxonil + azoxystrobin + difenoconazole) controls silver scurf (Helminthosporium solani) and Fusarium spp on stored potatoes. While storage diseases are not curable, pathogens can be controlled by limiting the spread of infection from diseased to healthy tubers, the company points out. Syngenta introduced Stadium in the US last year (Agrow No 670, p 34).
