Novel mode of action fungicide a ‘game-changer’ for pulse growers

Canadian pulse growers can finally stay a step ahead of stubborn fungal diseases and protect their bottom line thanks to the launch of new Zetigo™ PRM fungicide from Corteva Agriscience™.

Zetigo PRM, powered by Adavelt™ active, a novel Group 21 fungicide active ingredient, provides powerful disease control and elevated resistance management in pulses.

“We’re committed to providing Canadian farmers with the innovative fungicides they need to address the challenges they face today, and in the future,” said Lorelei Yeboah, Portfolio Marketing Manager, Corteva Agriscience. “As the only Group 21 fungicide within the pulse market, Zetigo PRM will be a real game-changer for pulse growers.”

Zetigo PRM promises to shape the future of pulse disease management by providing:

  • Brand new mode of action. Zetigo PRM does not demonstrate any known cross-resistance with other widely used fungicides. This makes it an effective rotation partner in an integrated pest management strategy, and an excellent option to replace existing products that are losing effectiveness due to resistance.
  • Broad spectrum control. Zetigo PRM is not only for lentil growers facing challenging anthracnose incidence – the potential for Adavelt active in other pulse crops against other diseases is huge. As the first broad-spectrum picolinamide fungicide for use against Ascomycetes pathogens in over 30 crops, Corteva expects to add new pulse crops (along with new diseases controlled) to the label in time for the 2024 growing season.

Why use Zetigo™ PRM fungicide?

  • Provides multiple effective Modes of Action for true resistance management
  • Helps to preserve critical fungicide actives for an effective fungicide rotation
  • Delivers excellent performance on anthracnose in lentils

Zetigo PRM is currently available to lentil growers across western Canada. To protect your crops today and prosper tomorrow, talk to your local Corteva territory manager about adding the new fungicide to your pulse disease management plan.
