BASF presents Initium in Spain
BASF has presented its fungicide, ametoctradin (trade-marked as Initium), in Spain. It is to be the base for a line of new products within the AgCelence brand for the control of downy mildew on fruits and vegetables. The active ingredient gained full EU approval two years ago. AgCelence is marketed as providing benefits beyond crop protection, such as tolerance to stress. BASF made the presentation at this month’s 15th national horticultural sciences congress.
