ASA Weighs in with EPA on Importance of New Tools to Combat

first_imgCiting the importance of new modes of action to combat resistance among fungal disease threats, the American Soybean Association (ASA) submitted comments calling on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to move forward with the registration of Solatenol, a fungicide marketed by Syngenta as Trivapro, and a new tool to combat soybean rust, as well as fungal diseases in corn, wheat and specialty crops.”Solatenol provides growers with a new option among fungicide products, which we are pleased to see. New modes of action like Solatenol and other products like it are critical tools for soybean farmers as we begin to address emerging and evolving threats in our fields, particularly the significant issue of resistance,” wrote ASA. “With more options, farmers can alter their approaches to the rapidly growing challenge of resistance that arises, and we encourage the Agency to move forward on registration of Solatenol to better equip us as we tackle this problem.”For a full copy of the comments, please click here.last_img
