Further expansion of SOLATENOLTM fungicide in Europe


  • New registration in Germany received
  • Basis for ELATUS™ Era and ELATUS™ Plus fungicides
  • Delivers outstanding control of major cereals diseases
  • First sales in Germany in 2017 season

Syngenta announced today that the registration of its SDHI fungicide SOLATENOL™ has been further extended in Europe following approval by the German authorities. This most recent registration will allow Syngenta to introduce the products ELATUS™ Era and ELATUS™ Plus to the cereals market in Germany. ELATUS™ Plus is a solo formulation of the active ingredient SOLATENOL™ sold in co-packs with a range of other products. ELATUS™ Era is a combination of the two active ingredients SOLATENOL™ and prothioconazole.

The launch of SOLATENOL™ in Germany for the 2017 season gives growers in another major cereals market access to this leading new technology.  SOLATENOL™ is already registered in France, Croatia, UK, Ireland, Finland, Latvia, Estonia and Austria.

SOLATENOL™ is a carboxamide fungicide offering an unrivaled performance against Septoria and rusts - two important diseases which can significantly impact cereals production. In trials, it has proven to be extremely consistent in providing excellent disease control on all important cereals varieties in a wide range of situations over several years. The product offers outstanding levels of leaf protection resulting in higher yield and return on investment for the farmer.

SOLATENOL™ is also available for use on soybean in Latin America and on a wide range of crops in the USA and Canada.
