Throughout June and July Syngenta will be opening their Innovation Centres and multiple trial Platform Sites to give people the chance to see first-hand multiple new varieties up close and in comparable situations, as well as viewing the latest new and exciting developments in the Syngenta product portfolio.
Jason Tatnell, Syngenta’s technical indication expert, explains why this year the demo days are a must attend event. “Within the arable sector there are increasing challenges that growers are coming up against. Our Innovation Centres are designed to give people the opportunity to see first-hand, new technology that can deliver at a farm level.
“The trial work carried out at our trial sites across the country, are designed to answer the questions growers want answered, enabling them to make informed decisions alongside their agronomists.
“And this year, we will be previewing our exciting, new SDHI cereal fungicide, SOLATENOL™, which is an opportunity not to be missed,” he adds.
“SOLATENOL™ was first discovered as a compound with huge potential in 2005. Since then it’s passed through a rigorous testing process, including extensive formulation testing, microscopy and biokinetic studies, and hundreds of field trials.
“The tremendous research and development investment has given us a complete understanding of how SOLATENOL™ works, and why in trials it consistently outperforms current market standards as a T2 fungicide,” says Mr Tatnell.
“Trials in the UK and across Europe show very consistent results. We’ve seen exceptional control of Septoria and rust across various varieties, disease pressure scenarios and geographical locations, and this is down to the technical credentials of the product.
“Attending one of our Innovation Centres, will allow growers to see for themselves how well SOLATENOL™ is performing at a local level, and have any questions answered by your Syngenta area manager.
