Welcome to our new website!

Advisory Blog

12 months ago, we promised additional support for ornamental growers and we alluded to this a few weeks ago, and now, here it is. Our brand-new website with a host of features to help you to get more


The Advisory Blog

The fact you're reading this means you've found our blog, welcome. We frequently publish detailed articles on compatibility and mixing, the Art of Application, product development and how we get products to market, plus so much more. 


Product range

Of course you will find all the information you need on our product range including their labels and safety sheets, this will get updated frequently so make sure you bookmark the page. 


The Art of Application

A series of videos with our Technical Manager, Glenn Kirby, who talks you through the details of spray applications and lots more. As a company, Syngenta have a long history when it comes to maximising spray applications on farm. Remember the Sprays and Sprayers event? That was us. Heard of the Spray Dudes? That’s Syngenta too. The Farm Spray Operator of the Year? Well, you get the message. So, grab a coffee, sit back and listen to Glenn's dulcet tones and see if there are changes you can make to get more from your spray applications.


The Advice Hub

This is the big one, our showstopper. In here, you really will find the backbone of what makes Syngenta Ornamentals your partner in the greenhouse. Using adjuvants and curious about our new product, Stena? There's a series of FAQ's and introduction video to guide you through, believe us, this isn't our first shot at adjuvants in Syngenta, a bit like spray applications, we know what we're talking about, and we LOVE to share that information. 

Over the past few weeks we’ve talked a lot on the blog about resistance management and how important it is. Well, luckily for you we have even more information on how you can navigate this maze of technical information. We bring you a host of resistance management tools. Ever wondered about the life cycle of botrytis and how you can slow it down? Click through to our Life Cycles Explained which has nine different pests and diseases for you to explore.

It doesn’t stop there… make sure you check out (and print to keep…) our resistance management schemes. These feature every active ingredient available to treat a particular disease, like powdery mildew for example, is mapped out alongside it’s FRAC or IRAC code, helping you to plan your spray programmes.

If you’re tired just reading all of this, let alone exploring it, you’ll be pleased to know there is more to come. There is a real wealth of information here, so much for you to benefit from. But there is more... Waiting in the wings is the PotCast. A monthly podcast that will feature in depth discussions about getting the most from our products, how to get more from your spray applications and interviews with industry experts. Whichever way you look at it, there is just more coming from us to help you.  

And if that wasn’t enough, check out our weather page as well, just because you can.

So navigate through our site, absorb the info, sign up for automatic blog updates if you don't already get them, follow us on all the social media channels but most of all we want to hear from you. What else do you want to see? What's missing? How else can we help you and your crops? We look forward to hearing what you think.
