Syngenta offers new wheat herbicide and fungicide, plus a label expansion update

Wheat growers looking to manage resistance without compromising their crop rotation have a new herbicide to add to their management toolbox.

Syngenta Canada has launched Erebus Xtreme, a grass and broadleaf cereal herbicide that combines Group 2 and Group 4 active ingredients in a pre-mixed liquid formulation.

When using Erebus Xtreme, Syngenta says cereal growers will be able to effectively target a broad range of their most challenging grass and broadleaf weeds – including wild oats, Japanese brome, wild buckwheat, kochia, cleavers, and hempnettle.

Donavan Baer, cereal herbicide product lead with Syngenta Canada, says the new product is “a convenient cross-spectrum solution for growers who want to manage resistance without compromising their crop rotation the following year.”

Erebus Xtreme is a pre-mix liquid formulation of pyroxsulam (Group 2) and fluroxypyr (Group 4) for spring wheat, winter wheat and durum. It’s available to growers for the 2022 growing season.

Syngenta is also launching Miravis Era for fusarium head blight protection in wheat crops, with two active ingredients adepidyn (Group 7) and prothioconazole (Group 3).

Syngenta is also expanding its labels for Miravis Neo  to include cereals and soybeans and Miravis Ace to include oats and barley.

“We are entering a new chapter of advanced disease protection with Miravis® Era at the forefront,” says Sam Livesey, product lead for row crop fungicides, insecticides and plant growth regulators. “Our customers are quickly learning the power adepidyn brings through our other Miravis fungicide brands. Miravis Era is the first product on the market to deliver two highly effective modes of action against FHB.”

Sam Livesey, product lead for row crop fungicides, insecticides and plant growth regulators says Miravis Era will be available in limited quantities in 2022 to growers who are consistently fighting Fusarium head blight and require the most advanced protection.
