New BASF Fungicides Registered for Use


BASF has announced the full EPA registration of Priaxor™ fungicide and Merivon® fungicide. Both combine the active ingredient from existing products with a new active ingredient in the carboxamide family – Xenium. Priaxor is expected to provide unprecedented disease protection and post-infection disease control from some of the toughest fungal diseases in soybeans. It’s also labeled for use in potatoes and tomatoes. Merivon will do the same for several pome and stone fruit crops – including apples, cherries and peaches.

Three years of in-field research has shown Priaxor delivers consistent yield improvements in soybeans through superior disease control and Plant Health benefits. It also controls some of the toughest diseases threatening potatoes – including early blight and black dot – and tomatoes – including powdery mildew and black mold. BASF says Priaxor has also shown effective disease control in corn against Northern and Southern corn leaf blight, gray leaf spot and common rust.
