BASF to debut Xemium in Argentina

BASF is to launch its fungicide, fluxapyroxad (trade-marked as Xemium), in Argentina this year for use on soybeans, wheat and peanuts among other crops. The company unveiled the new active ingredient at a national trade fair in March. Soybean products manager for Argentina Ricardo Paglione says the new mode of action makes fluxapyroxad-based products “as preventive as the best strobilurin fungicides”, and “curative as the best triazoles”. The ai gained US approval earlier this year, where it is to be sold in combination fungicides for use on a range of crops ( Agrow No 640, p 21). Fluxapyroxad received its first approval, in the UK, in October 2011, with further registrations later in the month in France and Germany for use on cereals ( Agrow No 627, p 25).
