Syngenta announced today that it has received US EPA approval for ORONDIS™ a new high-performance fungicide. First sales are expected in the 2016 season.
ORONDIS offers vegetable and specialty crop growers a step change in controlling diseases such as downy mildew and late blight. Its new mode of action complements and expands Syngenta’s market-leading fungicide portfolio and helps address increasing resistance to some products. In extensive trials, ORONDIS has shown unparalleled efficacy at significantly lower rates compared with other fungicides.
Davor Pisk, Chief Operating Officer, said: “ORONDIS is the latest launch from our $3.6 billion crop protection pipeline. It offers growers a highly effective and sustainable tool to combat diseases that can devastate crops and diminish yields.”
ORONDIS contains the active ingredient oxathiapiprolin. Syngenta secured a license to develop and market products containing oxathiapiprolin from DuPont in 2013 and has exclusive rights for foliar and soil use on all crops in North America and for foliar use on vegetables, grapes and other specialty crops outside North America.
ORONDIS has a peak sales potential of more than $150 million. Launches in several major markets and across a range of crops are planned.
