The Environmental Protection Agency has approved a shorter Restricted Entry Interval (REI) for Syngenta's Revus fungicide. Previously Revus required a 12 hour REI, now it has been reduced to four hours.


Syngenta introduced Revus in February 2008 with the active ingredient mandipropamid, the first mandelamide fungicide on the market, which targets oomycete fungi, including the pathogens that cause Phytophthora blight, late blight and downy mildews. Revus is labeled for use on grapes and vegetables, including bulb, fruiting, leafy and brassica vegetables, as well as cucurbits.
