BASF presents Xemium research in US

BASF presented research on its fluxapyroxad (trade-marked Xemium)-based fungicides, Merivon and Priaxor, at the American Phytopathological Society meeting in Hawaii this month. Merivon is a 1:1 combination of fluxapyroxad and pyraclostrobin (trade-marked F500), while Priaxor is a 1:2 combination of the same active ingredients. Merivon controls diseases such as powdery mildew ( Podosphaera clandestina) on cherries, brown rot ( Monilinia fructicola) on peaches, and scab ( Venturia inaequalis) on apples. Diseases controlled by Priaxor include Septoria spp on cereals and soybeans, and early blight ( Alternaria solani) on potatoes and tomatoes. BASF hopes to receive US approvals for the products in early 2012.
