The fungicide VELISTA® successfully controls multiple diseases affecting turf through the innovative SDHI mode of action. It is a valuable addition to our portfolio, and can be used in rotation with other fungicides to help manage the resistance of turf grass to other treatments.
Syngenta’s formulation department was quickly able to develop the newly-acquired active ingredient, penthiopyrad, into a product that met the quality and efficacy required by the company and its customers.
VELISTA® has been well accepted by customers in the important golf sector, and sales have outstripped expectations.
