BASF gets first Initium approval

BASF has been granted the first approval for its fungicide, Initium (ametoctradin). Romania granted the approval in record time, BASF says. The triazolopyrimidine fungicide is to be sold as Enervin for use on grapevines and as Zampro for use on vegetables against late blight ( Phytophthora infestans) and downy mildews. The active ingredient has been trade-marked as Initium. “Because of the very favourable environmental profile of Initium, the products were authorized in the record time of four years,” Roland Ringel, head of global development for Initium, says.
