Syngenta develops new nematicide and fungicide technology platform

Syngenta unveiled the new TYMIRIUM™ technology platform brand this week. In a press release, the company says it is a novel nematicide and fungicide technology under development for both seed- and soil-applied uses.

TYMIRIUM™ technology is said to be 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, Syngenta says 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.
