BASF confirms Canadian Xemium OK for maize and soybeans
BASF has just confirmed the Canadian approval of its fluxapyroxad (trade-marked as Xemium)-based fungicide, Priaxor (fluxapyroxad 167 g/litre + pyraclostrobin 333 g/litre), for use on maize and soybeans.It is also registered for use on small-grain cereals and grasses grown for seed production. Priaxor is recommended for use at 0.225-0.3 litre/ha on small-grain cereals and grasses, 0.3 litre/ha on maize, 0.24-0.45 litre/ha on soybeans. The Canadian authorities approved six fluxapyroxad-based fungicides, including Priaxor, in September 2012 (Agrow No 648, p 20). BASF confirmed the registration of its first fluxapyroxad-based product, Priaxor DS (fluxapyroxad 250 g/litre + pyraclostrobin 250 g/litre), for use on field peas, lentils and chickpeas last November (Agrow No 654, p 19).
