Syngenta gets approval from Brazilian authorities on its foliar fungicide

BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Syngenta’s breakthrough foliar fungicide, ELATUS, has been approved by the Brazilian authorities. ELATUS is a combination of Syngenta’s new SDHI chemistry SOLATENOL and AMISTAR. It offers unrivaled performance against soybean rust, a devastating disease which can significantly impact yields.

“ELATUS is a powerful addition to our leading soybean portfolio and will be an important part of our integrated offers. Latin American soybean growers now have a new tool to control rust and manage resistance. This will enable them to increase production in response to growing global demand while optimizing their use of natural resources,” said John Atkin, Chief Operating Officer, Syngenta.
