Excitement Builds in Advance of Fungicide Launch

Product Update
Solatenol at Cereals 2016

A trip of a life time to the first home of Syngenta’s new SDHI fungicide SOLATENOL™ is up for grabs this summer.

Having launched at Cereals 2016, and continuing throughout the summer at their Innovation Centres and Platform Sites, Syngenta are running a prize draw competition, with one lucky pair winning the chance to visit South America, the first continent to launch SOLATENOL™. Opportunities to get involved and enter the competition this summer are available at Syngenta’s demo sites throughout June and July, where hopeful winners will need to answer a simple question about SOLATENOL™.

“After an 11 year journey from lab to field, SOLATENOL™ was launched in 2014, in Brazil for use on soybean, sugarcane, maize, beans and cotton to control rust and soy disease,” explains Andrew Curtis, fungicide campaign manager at Syngenta.

“The launch of SOLATENOL™ is something we are extremely proud of as a global company, and there is a lot to see and learn from what growers across the globe and trials in Europe have already achieved. The summer events are the perfect opportunity to experience SOLATENOL™ first hand, at a local level and understand how it has already been delivering and the potential of the fungicide active in the UK market."

SOLATENOL™ consistently performs well as a fungicide providing complete leaf protection inside and outside the leaf,” he explains. “This once in a lifetime trip is an opportunity not to be missed. Even if you’re not the main prize winner, there are plenty of mini prizes also up for grabs,” adds Mr Curtis.
