Corteva Agriscience Inatreq™ Active Approved in Belgium

Naturally Derived Fungicide Provides Cereal Farmers with First Unique Target Site for Septoria in 15 Years

BRUSSELS, October 20, 2020 – Corteva Agriscience announced today that Belgium has approved the registration of an Inatreq™ active product.

Questar™and AquinoTM fungicide with Inatreq™ active, now approved for sale and use in Belgium, are a new, naturally derived fungicide that offers market-leading curative and protectant control on all Septoria strains, supporting a long-term sustainable fungicide strategy on farms.

These products will be available for sale in Belgium in time for the 2021 growing season. Inatreq is already approved in France and the Republic of Ireland, with the registration process continuing across the Europe region.

“Ultimately, this new solution will help control Septoria, the biggest disease affecting wheat yields and of greatest concern to farmers,” said Corteva Agriscience Benelux Director Wim Boudeling. “Resulting from the pioneering work of Corteva Agriscience researchers, this new fungicide will meet the challenges of sustainable management and respond to our farmers' desire for innovation to help them better protect their crops."

Inatreq offers outstanding biology performance, and its unique target site for Septoria gives farmers a new tool to help manage the disease, as it shows no cross-resistance to existing cereal fungicide chemistries. Farmers also will benefit from its flexible application characteristics and consistent, broad-spectrum performance.

“Inatreq is the latest solution coming from our robust pipeline of innovative technologies,” said Susanne Wasson, President, Crop Protection Business Platform, Corteva Agriscience. “We’re excited to continue building on our portfolio of natural products. Thanks to the natural origin of Inatreq, we are also meeting European consumer demands for more sustainably produced food.”1
