US EPA to OK BASF's TrichoPlus biofungicide

The US EPA has proposed the approval of BASF's biofungicide, TrichoPlus (Trichoderma asperelloides strain JM41 R 5.5%), for the control of soil-borne diseases in soil and growing media in commercial greenhouses. It is for the control of pathogens such as Pythium spp, Rhizoctonia spp, Fusarium spp, Sclerotinia spp and Phytophthora spp. The product can be applied as a coarse spray, soil drench or through common irrigation application systems. The registration application was originally submitted by Becker Underwood in October 2012 and the active ingredient was identified as T fertile strain JM41R. BASF acquired Becker Underwood in November 2012 and subsequently provided additional data on the identity of the ai. The EPA officially notified receipt of the application in January 2015. The proposed approval is open to public comment until April 25th.
