The Miravis brand from Syngenta is one that is making an impact on growers in the southeastern region of the United States. Syngenta Agronomy Service Representative Wilson Faircloth was at the 2020 Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Growers Conference, where he shared information about three different Miravis products.
“2019 had a lot of challenges,” said Faircloth. “For those of us in the Deep South, we were recovering from a hurricane, and then beyond that we had drought and/or wet weather, so having products like the Miravis family that have extremely long residual activity gives growers a lot of flexibility. So if it’s raining too much, they’ve got the confidence to know that they can’t get back into the field, but my fungicide is still holding. These products certainly help out when our backs are against the wall.”
Faircloth said the advantages of the Miravis family of products include lengthened spray schedules and fewer spray applications due to extremely long residual control on foliar diseases. Miravis, Miravis Prime and Miravis Top are all registered and available for the 2020 growing season. Contact a local Syngenta representative for more information.
