Fungicide resistance is always something to be mindful of. As a seasoned potato farmer, you understand the importance of controlling early blight, but are you using the most effective spray program to manage the disease now and in years to come?

Fungicides remain an effective management tool for early blight, and protecting their longevity will help preserve profit potential in the future. Adding a fungicide with a new and different class of chemistry to your spray program will help manage potential resistance and maximize protection against early blight and other key diseases. Dr. Kiran Shetty, technical development lead at Syngenta, explains in the video below how Syngenta products like Miravis Prime fungicide help to combat resistance.

Miravis Prime, with fludioxonil and Adepidyn® fungicide, works to target a broad spectrum of diseases. In trials, Miravis Prime has demonstrated yield benefits above the current fungicide standard under early blight pressure.

This agronomic chart compares potato fungicides.
