Syngenta Crop Protection, part of Swiss-based agtech group Syngenta has announced Plinazolin technology, a new active ingredient with a novel ‘Mode of Action’ (IRAC Group 30) for insect control
Syngenta said that the Plinazolin technology delivers a new standard of performance, particularly against pests for which existing products no longer can provide effective control. It provides an effective solution in resistance management strategies and aims to replace older, less effective chemistries. The sunlight stability and rain-resistant properties of Plinazolin technology allow for longer spray intervals and fewer applications aimed at improving crop productivity and quality.
“The launch of this new technology is a result of our ongoing commitment to investing in the long-term development of innovative and effective solutions that increase crop productivity in an environmentally sustainable and responsible way. It’s exciting that growers in Argentina will be the first to benefit,” said Jon Parr, president, Global Crop Protection at Syngenta.
“Pests and diseases are a continually evolving threat, and the changing environment makes it even harder for farmers to grow their crops. Delivering farmers state-of-the-art and efficacious solutions to safeguard their crops is precisely what Syngenta Crop Protection is all about,” he added.
The technology aims to deliver unprecedented insect control on stinkbugs, mites, thrips, caterpillars, flies, and beetles. The company said that the product will be commercialised in more than 40 countries and for usage in over 40 crops, including soybean, corn, rice, coffee, cotton, and a wide range of fruits and vegetables. The technology also has the potential to be used in forestry and professional pest management programs, and as a seed treatment application.
