Syngenta has unveiled the Tymirium technology platform brand. It is a novel nematicide and fungicide technology under development for both seed- and soil-applied uses.
Tymirium technology is a great example of Syngenta investing in innovation to provide farmers with tools that help them maximize their yield in a sustainable way.
Based on the active ingredient cyclobutrifluram, Tymirium technology provides long-lasting protection against a broad spectrum of nematode pests and diseases across all major crops and geographies. Nematodes not only attack crops but also open a path to further fungal infection. Tymirium technology offers excellent control of both nematodes and soil-borne diseases, especially Fusarium species. By protecting the root mass, Tymirium technology plays a critical part in enabling no-tillage and conservation-tillage practices.
Jon Parr, President Global Crop Protection, said: “We are investing significantly in soil health at Syngenta, and the development of the Tymirium technology is a major step forward in this space. It will give farmers the freedom to maximize their yields without having to compromise on sustainability.”
The first launches of Tymirium technology-based products are planned for Latin America in 2021 / 2022. Further registrations across a broad range of crops world-wide are expected over the next five years.
