BASF launches Cevya fungicide in Canada

BASF is introducing Cevya fungicide, now registered in Canada for horticultural use in 2020.

 

Unlike other demethylation inhibitors (DMIs) in the market, Cevya fungicide is the first isopropanol-azole, a unique chemistry that helps ensure excellent binding capacity and adaptability through its molecular flexibility. This offers control even on plant pathogen strains that are insensitive to DMIs.

 

“Cevya fungicide is a systematic fungicide providing preventative and post-infection control of key diseases for growers challenged with resistance and seeking to maximize their yields,” said Trevor Latta, brand manager for corn, soybeans and horticulture, BASF Canada. “The fungicide controls biotypes that may have developed resistance to other Group 3, 7, 9 and 11 fungicides.”

 

Pome fruit growers can expect control against existing DMI-resistant apple scab while providing additional control options for powdery mildew. For growers seeking confidence to control early blight in potatoes, the application of Cevya fungicide provides a higher level of control over other chemistries that are losing their efficacy on isolates of the early blight pathogen.

 

The addition of Cevya fungicide to BASF’s portfolio provides grape growers a unique binding DMI option for control of powdery mildew.

 

Growers can learn more about Cevya fungicide and all other BASF Agricultural Solutions products by contacting their local BASF representative or by visiting AgSolutions.ca/horticulture.

 

Cevya fungicide is not for sale or use in Ontario (pending pesticide classification).
