Syngenta Secures EU Approval For Next Generation Fungicide
Date:11/13/2012

BASEL, Switzerland, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Syngenta today announced that it has received European Union (EU) approval for isopyrazam, the first active ingredient from its strong pipeline of next generation fungicides. Approval represents a major step forward in the control of a wide spectrum of damaging fungal diseases, including best-in-class performance against Yellow Rust.

Isopyrazam's advanced "double-binding" technology ensures strong adhesion to fungus and to leaf wax, providing long-lasting and durable disease protection.

Under the EU's provisional approval system, British and Irish cereal farmers have for the past two growing seasons experienced the benefits of isopyrazam, which is marketed as SEGURIS in wheat and BONTIMAin barley. These growers have consistently achieved better disease control, which has helped deliver higher crop yields: SEGURIS treatments increase yield by up to two tonnes per hectare versus current chemistries.

John Atkin, Chief Operating Officer, said: "Breakthrough chemical innovation is an enduring part of our integrated strategy. Isopyrazam sets the highest standards for disease control and yield response and this approval means growers throughout the EU can now benefit from this important addition to our portfolio."

Syngenta intends to register a range of products containing isopyrazam in major EU markets for use on cereals and others crops such as oilseed rape, vegetables and pome fruits.

Syngenta is one of the world's leading companies with more than 26,000 employees in over 90 countries dedicated to our purpose: Bringing plant potential to life. Through world-class science, global reach and commitment to our customers we help to increase crop productivity, protect the environment and improve health and quality of life.
