BELGRADE, Serbia – December 7, 2021 - Corteva Agriscience announced today that Serbia has approved the registration of a product with Inatreq™ active.
Univoq® fungicide with Inatreq active, now approved for sale and use in Serbia, is a new fungicide that offers exceptional curative and protectant control on all Septoria strains, supporting a long-term sustainable fungicide strategy on farms. It uses the patented iQ-4 formulation which deliver improved performance and empowers Univoq fungicide to stick to and spread across the leaf.
Univoq fungicide will be available for sale in Serbia in 2022. Inatreq active is already approved for use in cereals in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Republic of Ireland, the UK and Greece, with the registration process continuing across Europe and in other key cereal growing areas.
Inatreq active offers outstanding biology performance, and its novel 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.
Massimo Amadio, Country Leader, Corteva Agriscience, said: “Corteva Agriscience is recognised as having one of the brightest innovation pipelines in the industry, and this development will provide Serbian farmers with another tool to help control Septoria, the biggest disease affecting wheat yields.
“Resulting from the work of Corteva Agriscience researchers, this new fungicide will meet the challenges of sustainable management while also providing farmers with innovative solutions to help them better protect their crops.”
Corteva Agriscience Serbia Regulatory Manager Ivana Denić said: “This is the first new cereal fungicide from our pipeline and a clear signal of our intention to deliver the best chemistry to our customers, helping farms to deliver their goals of being profitable and sustainable for the future.
“Thanks to the natural origin of Inatreq active, we are also helping to meet consumer demands for more sustainably produced food1, alongside other innovations.”
Univoq fungicide provides long term protection against disease, helping cereal crops maintain healthy green leaves to increase yield.
