Syngenta announced Elatus, what the company sees as a breakthrough foliar fungicide, has been approved by the Brazilian authorities. Elatus is a combination of Syngenta’s new SDHI chemistry Solatenoland Amistar. It offers unrivaled performance against soybean rust, a devastating disease, especially for South American soybean growers.

Elatus is already sold in Paraguay and Bolivia and will be available in Brazil for the next season starting in September. It is a major innovation in soybean rust control, offering around seven to 10 days more control than current standards even in high disease pressure environments. By using Elatus as the mainstay of disease control programs, growers can benefit from more consistent performance, leading to higher and more predictable yields, according to Syngenta.
