SORATEL features ‘AsorbitalTM’ formulation technology

Comprising a unique combination of two solvents and an adjuvant, this novel formulation, which was developed at ADAMA’s global R&D facility at Neot Hovav, Israel, improves 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.

“Our mission wasn’t simply to bring yet another generic prothioconazole product to the market, but to develop an all-new formulation of this tried and tested active ingredient that offers real and tangible benefits above and beyond those already available from other prothioconazole based fungicides.”
Mel Wardle, ADAMA’s UK fungicide product manager

SORATEL vs. Market leading Prothioconazole

EU 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. Specifically, under UK conditions, trials have shown that SORATEL is up to 13% more efficacious against fusarium than the current market leader, with similar results also reported when used to treat sclerotinia in oilseed rape growing in a maritime climate.
