Cheminova takes over BASF's Sovran in US

BASF has granted exclusive US distribution rights to its strobilurin fungicide, Sovran (kresoxim-methyl), to Cheminova. The product is used to control powdery mildew, Botrytis spp and other diseases on crops such as grapevines, cucurbit vegetables, pome fruit and pecans. BASF has been selling Sovran in the US for over a decade, but many uses were duplicated by the introduction of its second-generation strobilurin, pyraclostrobin, in 2002 ( Agrow No 410, p 21). Cheminova sees the acquisition of distribution rights to Sovran as being an important step in expanding its portfolio of proprietary products for the US market. Cheminova’s fungicide range includes Topguard (flutriafol) and Koverall (mancozeb).
