Heritage TL, Syngenta Professional Products, Greensboro, N.C.
Syngenta has developed a liquid formulation of its leading strobilurin fungicide—Heritage—exclusively for the turf market. Heritage TL offers control of the same turf diseases as the original Heritage WG formulation, but with enhanced efficacy and application flexibility.
Research shows Heritage TL has a faster uptake into the leaf, coupled with more uptake from the roots and subsequently greater delivery of active ingredient into the leaves. Heritage TL controls the toughest turf diseases, including anthracnose (preventive only,) Pythium, fairy ring, snow mold, and brown patch.
Heritage is the only systemic strobilurin available to the turf market, resulting in up to 28 days of outstanding preventive control. In addition, Heritage TL has tank-mixes easily with other products, has no odor, mixes clear into solution, and won’t clog tanks and spray equipment.
Joseph DiPaola, Ph.D., golf market manager and Dave Ross, Ph.D., technical manager of Syngenta Professional Products and Victor Lo, Ph.D., senior staff chemist, Syngenta Crop Protection are responsible for the development of Heritage TL.
Heritage TL required nearly three years of development, and a significant investment of finances and Syngenta’s global resources and expertise.
Syngenta employs 19,000 people in 90 countries. Corporate head-quarters for Syngenta is located in Basel, Switzerland. NAFTA headquarters for Syngenta is located in Greensboro, N.C.
