Most commonly used Downy Mildew protectant fungicides, like copper and mancozeb can wash off with the first rainfall event, leaving grapevines exposed to infection. With REVUS you can have the confidence of up to 21 days reliable rainfast protection, no matter the weather conditions.
New Mode of Action
REVUS fits into a complete Downy Mildew offer from Syngenta including BRAVO® WEATHERSTIK, AMISTAR®, RIDOMIL® GOLD MZ and RIDOMIL® GOLD PLUS, delivering a sound resistance management program.
Unlike other commonly used protectant fungicides such as Copper*, Mancozeb*, Captan* and Metiram*, REVUS offers up to 21 days protection, delivering efficiency in spray application management on the vineyard.
Robust disease control
Local Australian trial results are delivering efficacy on Downy Mildew equal to RIDOMIL GOLD MZ and RIDOMIL GOLD PLUS when applied prior to an infection period, offering unrivalled performance.
The strong binding activity to the leaf surface from the LOK + FLO action, gives you the confidence against Downy Mildew outbreaks, no matter the weather conditions. REVUS is rainfast once spray has dried.
With concerns over mancozeb and copper, you can confidently improve a standard protectant fungicide program by integrating REVUS, knowing it is soft on beneficial insects and has minimal impact on the environment.
REVUS - Frequently asked questions
Why are there two different rates of REVUS on the label?
The two rates are on the label to provide growers with the flexibility to choose the protection period that they want to achieve, and also to suit the conditions at the time of application.
What is the resistance risk of REVUS?
Long-term experience with CAA fungicides (REVUS and Acrobat*) demonstrates that the resistance risk of Plasmopara viticola to this fungicide group is considered to be moderate and can be managed through appropriate use strategies.
What is the Mode of Action (MOA) of REVUS?
REVUS is a highly effective preventative fungicide that primarily inhibits germination of Downy Mildew, preventing penetration into the plant tissue.
REVUS contains the active constituent mandipro-pamid, which is a carboxylic acid amide fungicide. REVUS and dimethomorph (Acrobat*) inhibit the biosynthesis of phospholipids and cell wall deposition.
What is the MOA group for REVUS?
REVUS and Acrobat* belong to the Carboxylic Acid Amides fungicide Group, FRAC Group 40 (CAA-fungicides.)
Is the new growth that occurs after a REVUS application protected against Downy Mildew?
No. There is only one group of fungicide – products which contain phosphorous acid – which will move out of treated leaf through the petiole and into new growth. Fungicides which are labelled as being systemic are generally only either translaminar or xylem mobile, meaning they move in an outwards direction from the point of application
Is REVUS a systemic fungicide?
No, REVUS has translaminar movement meaning it will move through treated plant tissue in a direct line from the site of application to the direct opposite side of the treated plant tissue. This offers protection on the underside of the leaf or the inside of the developing grape berry.
How rainfast is REVUS?
Once dried on the plant, REVUS cannot be washed off the plant (REVUS LOK+FLO™ action) – unlike traditional protectants. REVUS will remain LOK’ed on and FLO in to treated plant tissue to offer control of Downy Mildew, regardless of rainfall.
How compatible is REVUS with other products?
REVUS is compatible with the following: THIOVIT JET®, TOPAS®, PROCLAIM®, AGRAL®, SWITCH®, Mimic*, Success*, Avatar*, Delfin Df*, Dithane Rainshield*, Kocide Blue Xtra*, Legend*, Oxydul Df*, Prosper*, Scala*, Teldor*.
Does capfall reduce the protection offered by REVUS over this growth period?
The translaminar movement of REVUS provides effective protection across both plant surfaces, and even under extreme weather conditions or when caps fall off during the flowering period, you can be reassured that REVUS will move through the cap to protect the berry underneath the cap even after the cap has fallen off.
Do I need to add an adjuvant with REVUS?
REVUS does not require the addition of a nonionic surfactant. However, where necessary for other compatible products, a non ionic surfactant may be used.
