Syngenta Crop Protection announced today that Quilt Xcel fungicide received a Section 3 registration from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Quilt Xcel is a systemic fungicide containing the Power of Two active ingredients to provide both curative and preventive disease control. As the next evolution of elite systemic fungicides, Quilt Xcel offers growers a new standard for long-lasting control of challenging diseases and optimized Plant Performance.

“As the global leader in fungicide development, we are excited to offer the best choice for the most advanced disease control” said Jamie Eichorn, fungicide brand manager with Syngenta Crop Protection. “With Quilt Xcel, our goal is to protect the investment the grower has already made with seed and crop protection inputs, and to help maximize his yield through broader-spectrum disease control and optimized Plant Performance.”

Quilt Xcel offers long-lasting residual control and broad-spectrum disease control, while optimizing the benefits of Plant Performance. These benefits can lead to healthier plants that produce higher yields due to enhanced drought tolerance and better photosynthetic efficiency essential to maximizing yield.

In addition to corn, Quilt Xcel received registration on almonds, bananas, berries, bulb vegetables, carrots, celery, cereals, cranberries, filberts, grasses, mint, pecans, pistachios, rice, sorghum, soybeans, stone fruits, strawberries, and tree nuts.
