Syngenta gets 1st Brazil fungicide OK for cane rust
Syngenta has gained the first registration in Brazil for a fungicide to control orange rust ( Puccinia kuehnii) on sugar cane, the company says. The authorities have granted it a use extension for its fungicide, Priori Xtra (azoxystrobin + cyproconazole). Priori Xtra is already used on soybeans against Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi). The product was introduced in Brazil for use on soybeans in 2004 ( Agrow No 441, p 21).
