Syngenta announced today that it has received EPA approval for Orondis, a new high-performance fungicide that has been shown to be very effective in suppressing several important vegetable oomycete diseases. First sales are expected next season.

Data from vegetable trials in our area indicate that this product will offer growers another great tool for managing problematic diseases such as Downy mildew in cucurbits, and Phytophthora capcisi in several vegetable crops.  Lima beans will not be on the label for the initial product launch.
