Elatus Plus hits the ground running

Published on 12/12/2018

And that was in a growing season characterised by low disease pressure.
Elatus Plus is a solo SDHI fungicide for wheat, offering a new level of control of Septoria and rust, with the flexibility to add the best DMI mixing partner.
Syngenta’s John Yates says by the time it was ready for market launch in New Zealand, most channel agronomists had had at least two seasons to see how well the product performed in the field, and were confident enough to recommend its use.
“And despite it being a low disease pressure year, those growers who used it were impressed enough to say they are going to use it again this year, according to a research survey carried out by Syngenta earlier this year,” Yates says.
The survey showed 95 per cent of growers who used Elatus Plus last season said they would use it again this season.
Interestingly, over 50 per cent of growers who did not use Elatus Plus last season said they planned to use it this season.
Comments from growers were very positive, with one leading mid Canterbury arable producer describing it as the best: “It’s very strong on rust. In wheat, it’s a cornerstone fungicide for us at T2 when the flag is out.”
Yates says grower feedback has also highlighted the flexibility of Elatus Plus with another grower pointing out it gives the flexibility to mix with whatever triazole fungicide they want to use.
Elatus Plus was registered just in time to launch at the FAR CROPS Event in December 2016, and will be featured again on the Syngenta site at CROPS 2018.
“If you are attending CROPS 2018 on 5 December at the FAR Chertsey Arable Site, Syngenta invite you to drop in for a free bacon sandwich and barista coffee, and to see Elatus Plus in action,” Yates says.
