Syngenta is launching two unique fungicides for the ornamental market, each containing a new active ingredient. The EPA has granted federal registration for the active ingredients Solatenol and oxathiapiprolin, with first product sales expected in early 2016. State registrations are pending.


With Solatenol, Syngenta is introducing an advanced generation SDHI (succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor) that offers broad-spectrum control of damaging foliar diseases and soil-borne pathogens.

Oxathiapiprolin, the second new active ingredient, provides control of diseases caused by downy mildew and Phytophthora spp. It is an excellent rotation partner for growers who battle these problematic diseases and face resistance concerns.

“Adding Solatenol and oxathiapiprolin to the Syngenta Plant Protection portfolio gives greenhouse and nursery growers more innovative, effective, and economical solutions for the disease challenges they face,” says Howard Jaekle, Fungicide Brand Manager for Syngenta.

Solatenol will be available to growers as Mural fungicide, which will be a combination with azoxystrobin, another fungicide innovation from Syngenta. Oxathiapiprolin will launch as Segovis fungicide. Both products will be available for sale in early 2016.
