Syngenta Unveils Quilt Xcel Fungicide For Cereals

Ready for next season's fight against rust, mildew, tan spot and foliar diseases.

Published on: Nov 17, 2011

Small grain producers fighting tough diseases in cereals will have new tactics available in 2012 with Syngenta's Quilt Xcel fungicide.

The longer-lasting, broader spectrum compound combats yield-robbing diseases in wheat, barley and triticale with a combination of Quadris and Tilt fungicides – known by Syngenta as "The Power of Two". Quilt Xcel offers increased levels of  azoxystrobin, a respiratory inhibitor that prevents energy production in fungal cells, and systemic-xylem mobility for better protection.

Syngenta says Quilt Xcel gives excellent flag leaf defense when applied between Feekes Growth Stages 8 and 10.5, and helps ensure maximum grain fill.

Quilt Xcel is effective on rusts, powdery mildew, tan spot and Septoria.
