“We are pleased to reach this regulatory milestone and get one step closer to providing Revysol fungicide disease control advantages to our customers in North America,” said Paul Rea, Senior Vice President, BASF Crop Protection North America. “Revysol fungicide is an outstanding solution for managing diseases and is set to significantly outperform current products in the market.”
Revysol fungicide is BASF’s newest triazole fungicide and trials have shown exceptional biological performance against several economically significant diseases. Its unique molecule will help enable long-term use of this vital chemistry class as global regulatory pressures increase. Revysol fungicide will complement BASF’s current fungicide portfolio with pre-mixes, offering plant health benefits as well as disease management and control. The fungicide will also provide a new option for the turf and ornamental management and seed treatment markets. In addition, Revysol fungicide will play an important role in integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
“Revysol fungicide will be manufactured at our production facility in Hannibal, Missouri, demonstrating the strategic importance of this fungicide to North American markets,” said Rea. “Our facilities in Hannibal offer the best possible conditions to quickly accommodate this latest innovation from BASF and to meet customer demands.”
“Revysol fungicide is the result of years of research and expertise. It was designed to meet the highest level of regulatory standards while helping growers manage their toughest disease challenges, including resistant pathogens. We will continue to bring innovations to market that support our customers and help to increase their on-farm success,” concluded Rea.
