Syngenta announces TYMIRIUM technology brand
- New active ingredient for seed treatment and soil applications with improved sustainability profile
- Broad spectrum control of nematodes and key fungal diseases
- High-performance, easy-to-use, low dose chemistry
Syngenta is proud to unveil 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.
