VAYANTIS® is a new, systemic fungicide seed treatment developed to protect corn, soybean, canola, oilseed rape and cereal seedlings from the most important damping off disease caused by Pythium spp. In soybeans it also provides also excellent control of root and stem rot caused by Phytophthora sojae. It contains Picarbutrazox, a novel compound from a novel chemistry class called Tetrazoyloximes. The precise mode of action is still under investigation but novel compared to the current available oomycete chemistries. It has no known cross resistance to any other oomycete fungicide compounds and will play a key role in broadening integrated pest management strategies through multiple, effective
modes of action.
