The article reports on the availability of Syngenta's Spyrale sugar-beet fungicide in Great Britain. The fungicide contains difenoconazole plus fenpropidin and gives growers a new mode of action against rust, powdery mildew and ramularia, as well as the persistence to maintain leaf growth into the autumn. An added benefit of the product is its effect on extending crop greening. The recommended maximum dose rate for Spyrale is 1 liter/hectare and up to two treatments per crop are allowed.
