2021 - Unique prothioconazole formulation boosts disease control at T3

ADAMA’s new prothioconazole fungicide, SORATEL, uses a unique formulation to offer improved disease control at T3. 

SORATEL (250 g/l prothioconazole), features ADAMA’s new ‘AsorbitalTM formulation technology which uses two solvents and a built-in adjuvant to improve uptake of the fungicide into the leaf and enables excellent systemic movement of the active ingredient through the plant to the site of action against fungal cells. 

This optimised uptake makes SORATEL the ideal choice at the T3 timing as it ensures improved control of fusarium ear blight and better control of septoria, rusts and mildew compared to the current market-leading prothioconazole product. 

Better than the best 

European trials have shown that, gramme for gramme per hectare, SORATEL consistently and reliably provides a notable improvement in disease control under a range of conditions compared to the current market leading prothioconazole product: in extensive trials, SORATEL has proven to give up to 18% (Maritime conditions) and 13% (UK conditions) more control of fusarium ear blight.

Broad spectrum activity 

SORATEL can be used as a standalone product or as a tank mix partner with other fungicides to deliver a broader spectrum of activity and can be used at a wide range of treatment timings to provide improved protection against a wide range of diseases. 

SORATEL uses ADAMA's unique 'AsorbitalTM Formulation Technology' to provide enhanced uptake and excellent systemic movement in the leaf to deliver superior and consistent control of a range of fungal diseases in cereals at T3
