BASF submits regulatory dossier to European Union for new fungicide

March 17, 2016

BASF has submitted the regulatory dossier for a new active ingredient, Revysol® fungicide, to the European Union (EU). Revysol fungicide, part of the triazole (SBI) chemical class, is expected to be a new fungicide that will play a major part in resistance management. Research of Revysol fungicide shows biological performance against difficult-to-control pathogens in row and specialty crops.

The introduction of Revysol fungicide will diversify products and modes of action available to combat damaging diseases. Over the past 10 years, no new molecule with this mode of action has been introduced to the market, thus raising the risk of resistance. Extensive research has demonstrated Revysol fungicide’s ability to control Septoria tritici and rust in cereals.

“We have applied our deep fungicide expertise and invested best-in-class research to create Revysol fungicide,” said Harald Rang, Senior Vice President of Research and Development, BASF Crop Protection. “Farmers will have a new tool to help ensure their crops will stay disease-free and healthy for a longer period of time, optimizing crop yields and quality of the harvest.”

Pending regulatory approvals, Revysol fungicide will be available in customized formulations to provide farmers worldwide, including the U.S., with high-performing fungicide solutions. First market introductions are expected for 2019 after the first regulatory approvals have been received.

Revysol is a registered trademark of BASF.
