New standard for disease control in grapes

Published on 29/09/2023

Introduction of Miravis Prime offers growers a powerful new option at flowering, acritical timing to control botrytis and powdery mildew in a preventative disease control programme.
Miravis Prime contains two active ingredi
ents - pydiflumetofen (Adepidyn technology) plus fludioxonil - in an easy-to-use liquid suspension concentrate (SC) formulation.
The two actives attack fungus at different
sites with contact, translaminar and local xylem systemic movement in the plant.

Adepidyn technology is the Syngenta trade
mark for pydiflumetofen, a powerful new SDHI fungicide that delivers a new standard in disease control, according to Syngenta.

“This is simply the most effective product
we have ever developed for botrytis and powdery mildew control in grapes, and we are really excited to bring Miravis Prime to the market in New Zealand,” says Paul Hassan, technical services lead for Syngenta.

In over 20 efficacy trials in NZ, Miravis Prime has consistently outperformed the
current standards when applied at E-L 25 (80 per cent cap fall).

According to Syngenta, what makes it so ef
fective is the unique fungicidal properties of Adepidyn technology.

In Syngenta laboratory trials, Adepidyn
technology was shown to be 10 times more potent against grape botrytis (Botrytis cinerea) compared to other SDHI fungicides tested.

While Adepidyn technology has excellent
activity against powdery mildew, the addition of wettable sulphur (such as Thiovit Jet) is recommended as best practice for powdery mildew resistance management.

Miravis Prime has built-in resistance man
agement for botrytis as both actives are effective against botrytis at the labelled use rate, therefore no additional mixing partner is required when targeting this disease.

Syngenta says grower feedback from the
past season’s use is extremely positive on efficacy on both botrytis and powdery mildew, while delivering nil residues in wine.

Applied at 100 ml per 100 litres, one applica
tion of Miravis Prime is allowed per season.

It is packed in five litre plastic containers,
which can be recycled through Agrecovery.
