New strobilurin metyltetraprole is said to control pathogens resistant to existing strob actives.

The new compound belongs to the QoI group of fungicides and, with the chemical structure tetrazolinone, represents novel chemistry in this group, says a joint announcement from the two companies.

 

The new material is said to differ from existing QoI fungicides in that it controls pathogens that have developed resistance towards strobilurin fungicides currently available on the market.

 

It is said to be highly effective against a broad range of diseases, including septoria leaf blotch in wheat.

 

Pending regulatory approval, market introduction of formulations based on the new compound are expected in the EU from 2022 onwards.
