Syngenta announced today that MIRAVIS has received registration from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).
MIRAVIS is expected to significantly benefit Australian canola, potato and grape growers, according to Syngenta Product Lead for MIRAVIS in Australia, Leandro Posteraro.
“MIRAVIS offers a significant improvement in control versus industry standards for blackleg in canola, early blight (Alternaria) in potatoes and powdery mildew in grapes,” Leandro said.
“These three pathogens are among the most common disease challenges growers face in the respective crops, and we have seen that MIRAVIS delivers a powerful solution.
“Local field trials have demonstrated impressive results that will translate to a strong return on investment for growers in commercial crops.
“MIRAVIS visibly delivers powerful and dependable performance that you can see when you walk into the crop.”
Syngenta Territory Head – Australasia, Paul Luxton, said MIRAVIS is another example of Syngenta bringing innovative new technology to the Australian market to benefit local growers.
“MIRAVIS is a global product that we have locally tried and tested in Australian conditions,” Paul said.
“This focus on local research and development delivers to Australian growers a world-class solution that is locally relevant and environmentally proven.”
“This is part of our broader focus of being a research and development leader in Australia to help growers produce crops more efficiently with greater yield outcomes.”
First sales are expected in the 2018 canola season in Australia.
