Syngenta Fungicide Gets EPA OK for OrnamentalsSource: Syngenta

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has granted federal registration of Syngenta's new Micora foliar fungicide for use on ornamental crops as well as certain vegetables grown for resale as transplants.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted federal registration of Syngenta’s new Micora foliar fungicide for use on ornamental crops as well as certain vegetables grown for resale as transplants.

Micora contains the active ingredient mandipropamid (FRAC Group 40), a carboxylic acid amide fungicide that inhibits spore germination and delivers both preventive and curative protection.

“Micora brings the performance ornamental growers need against some of their most challenging foliar, stem and root diseases caused by downy mildew fungi and Phythophthora spp., including P. ramorum,” said Scott Lawson, marketing manager for Syngenta. “The new label also gives ornamental and transplant growers the flexibility to use Micora in both greenhouses and nurseries.”

Micora delivers what Syngenta calls LOK + FLO technology to provide immediate and residual protection, adds Nancy Rechcigl, field technical manager for Syngenta. “The molecule adheres tightly to the waxy plant cuticles instantly upon contact, then steadily flows into the plant tissue to provide protection on both sides of the leaf,” she said.
