US OKs BASF's Headline plant health claims
The US EPA has sanctioned BASF’s plant health claims for its established fungicide, Headline (pyraclostrobin). It is the first fungicide to have such claims approved by the Agency, BASF points out. Headline is registered for use on more than 90 crops to control over 50 diseases. It boosts yields through disease control but also by improving growth efficiency and tolerance to environmental stresses, BASF says.
