Syngenta announced today the launch of VIBRANCE™, a proprietary seed treatment fungicide based on the new active ingredient sedaxane. VIBRANCE, which has been tailored specifically for the seed treatment market, protects major crops against a wide range of diseases carried in soil and air as well as against seed infection. Its properties also result in outstanding protection of the entire plant root system.
John Atkin, Syngenta COO, said: “Research is increasingly focusing on the ability of roots to efficiently use water and nutrients as a key to further improvements in crop productivity. VIBRANCE is a major step towards integrated root health solutions and will play an important role in enforcing Syngenta‟s global leadership position in seed treatment.”
Recent results in the field demonstrate that VIBRANCE delivers enhanced root health leading to improved crop performance under a wide range of conditions. VIBRANCE is now available in Argentina for the coming growing season. It will be combined with other Syngenta Seed Care compounds as a complete solution for cereals. Further registrations across all major crops worldwide are expected over the next two years.
