Syngenta's Trivapro Fungicide Available to Western Canadian Growers for 2017


There’s a new foliar fungicide on its way to western Canadian growers.

“Trivapro will be available for use in cereals, soybeans and corn,” explains Syngenta’s Rob Klewchuk, in this following interview. “There’s three active ingredients — three modes of action.”

The active ingredients include: propiconazole (Group 3), azoxystrobin (Group 11), and the new succinate dehydro-genase inhibitor (SDHI) benzovindiflupry (Group 7). The three modes of action allow for broad-spectrum leaf disease control while also mitigating the risk of resistance development.

According to Syngenta, Trivapro Manages:


  • Tan Spot (Pyrenophora tritici-repentis)
  • Powdery Mildew (Erysiphe graminis)
  • Leaf Rust (Puccinia recondita, P. hordei)
  • Wheat leaf rust (Puccinia triticina)
  • Stem Rust (P. graminis)
  • Stripe Rust (P. striiformis)
  • Crown Rust (P. coronata)
  • Septoria Leaf Blotch (Septoria tritici)
  • Net Blotch (Drechslera teres)
  • Barley Scald (Rhynchosporium secalis)


  • Rust (Puccinia sorghi)
  • Grey Leaf Spot (Cercospora zeae-maydis)
  • Northern Corn Leaf Blight (Setosphaeria turcicum)
  • Southern Corn Leaf Blight (Cochliobolus heterostrophus)
  • Eye Spot (Aureobasidium zeae)


  • Frogeye Leaf Spot (Cercospora sojina)
  • Anthracnose (Colletotrichum truncatum)
  • Asian Soybean Rust (Phakopsora pachyrrhizi)
  • Septoria Brown Spot (Septoria glycines)
  • Powdery Mildew (Microsphaera diffusa, Erysiphe pisi, E. polygoni)
  • Suppression of Pod and Stem Blight (Diaporthe phaseolorum)

“Every bit of the product goes to work to either control the fungus or sit in the waxy layer of the leaf and wait for the fungus to come in,” said Syngenta’s Scott Cully. “We’re basically seeing this product last and control disease in corn and other crops for two weeks longer than anything else we’ve ever applied.”

Trivapro will be available to producers in western Canada for 2017. It made its first appearance in the eastern Canada this year.
