SALTRO™ contains the novel active ingredient Pydiflumetofen branded as ADEPIDYN™. The molecule belongs to the chemical class of the Succinate Dehydrogenase Inhibitors. SALTRO™ is an ideal partner for Syngenta’s leading seed applied fungicide portfolio especially for canola, oilseed rape, soybeans and rice. Key targets are Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) caused by Fusarium virguliforme on soybeans, black leg on canola/oilseed rape caused by Leptosphaeria maculans and Bakanae on rice caused by Gibberella fujikuroi. In addition, SALTRO™ is very safe for seeds and the emerging seedlings promoting a rapid and strong emergence under a wide range of environmental conditions.

SALTRO™ contains Pydiflumetofen which belongs to the chemical class of the Succinate Dehydrogenase Inhibitors (SDHI)
Mode of
Pydiflumetofen blocks the SDH (Succinate Dehydrogenase also referred as Complex II or succinate-ubiquinone oxidoreductase) in the respiratory chain in the
mitochondria of fungal cells
Portfolio FitComplements the performance of the seed applied fungicide technologies like APRON® XL (Mefenoxam),DYNASTY® (Azoxystrobin Technology), VIBRANCE
(Sedaxane), MAXIM XL (Fludioxonil); and others
TargetsSudden Death Syndrome in soybeans caused by Fusarium virguliforme, Seed-borne and early foliar blackleg in canola and oilseed rape caused by Leptosphaeria maculans (Phoma lingam), Bakanae disease on rice caused by Gibberella fujikuroi
SymptomsSoybeans: Sudden Death Syndrome
First symptoms seen as interveinal leaf chlorosis and necrosis, Diffuse chlorotic mottling and crinkling of the leaves which will fall leaving only petioles
SDS also turns stem cortical tissue tan to light brown in color, Symptoms appear suddenly, late in the season generally during ower and pod production
Rotted roots and loss of vigor. Blue masses of spores (macroconidia) around the taproot just below the soil surface are a clear indication of SDS
Canola/Oilseed rape: Blackleg
Cotyledons develop grey circular leaf spot with tiny dark fruiting bodies of the fungus, Sudden seedling death, Internal blackening at the base of the stem causing
yield loss without external signs, Dark cankers from internal infection cause plants to lodge and die, Shrivelled seeds
Rice: Bakanae diseases
Disease infects roots and crown, Abnormal seedling elongation, Thin and chlorotic leaves, Reduced number of tillers, Causes wiry adventitious roots
Main cropsSoybeans, canola and oilseed rape, rice, others
GeographySALTRO™ is registered in the US, Australia and Canada in canola and oilseed rape and will be registered in the EU and in rice producing countries.
Date of first launch2019/2020 treatment season in US
and Main
SALTRO™ provides protection against SDS in soybeans, SALTRO™ provides protection to cotyledons against early blackleg infections in canola/oilseed rape
seedlings. Allows for optimal seedling stand and improves plant survival. Reduces blackleg internal stem infection providing an increase in crop yield
SALTRO™ offers excellent Bakanae disease control in rice, SALTRO™ has excellent compatibility with other disease control technologies
