Approval sought for new triazole fungicide#cerealdisease

In a statement the company says it expects the proprietary compound, which it is calling Revysol, to be its new ‘blockbuster’ fungicide from the triazole class.

 

The new active has shown ‘outstanding’ biological performance against a range of pathogens, it is claimed.

 

BASF is aiming for registrations in row and specialty crops.

 

No new molecules with this mode of action have been introduced to the market for more than ten years, says the company.

 

Triazoles are one of the classes of agrochemicals set to be affected by the European Commission’s decision on the definition of an endocrine disruptor, as required in the Plant Protection Products Regulation.

 

However, BASF Crop Protection senior vice president of research and development Harald Rang says the new fungicide has been designed to “meet the highest level of regulatory standards.”

 

Subject to approval, BASF anticipates Revysol will be supplied to growers in customised formulations, with first market introductions expected for 2019.
