The EPA has granted registration to new Contend fungicide from Syngenta for control of pink and gray snow mold.
Contend delivers unique, multi-targeted control for more than 120 days by combining four active ingredients, including Solatenol, a new active ingredient for the turf industry, according to the company. The new fungicide operates in three Fungicide Resistant Action Committee codes for a well-rounded countrol, and is made up of two separately registered products, Contend A and Contend B, used in combination to treat three acres.
Syngenta says, Solatenol, a third generation SDHI developed by Syngenta, binds strongly to the plant’s waxy layer and slowly penetrates the plant tissue for long-lasting pathogen defense. This binding, plus translaminar activity, offers quick uptake for superior protection. By combining Solatenol with three trusted active ingredients, Contend provides powerful protection against multiple stages of disease development.
