BASF is to launch a new fungicide in Brazil for the forthcoming planting season, media report. It will be complementary to modes of action already available through the company. The company is reportedly to reveal the fungicide in the coming weeks. The product will be aimed at Asian soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi) control, and has all required registrations. Crop protection manager in Brazil Alexandre Kurosaki, notes its launch will follow on from those of Ativum (pyraclostrobin - trade-marked as F500 + epoxiconazole + fluxapyroxad - trade-marked as Xemium) in the last planting season, and of Orkestra (fluxapyroxad + pyraclostrobin), the previous year. He reportedly cites that Ativum was applied on 200,000 ha of crops in 2016/17, and was the first product with three modes of action on the national market. Orkestra was approved in 2013 as the first carboxamide in Brazil, with an extension to 21 crops two years ago. The planting season starts late in the third quarter.
