BASF has launched an SDHI fungicide, Allstar (fluxapyroxad, trademarked as Xemium) for control of rhizoctonia in potatoes. The active is also available for use in cereals.
BASF campaign manager Matthew Goodson said: “It produces brighter, more uniform potatoes with fewer skin blemishes, making them more widely marketable.”
Allstar is kind to crops, he added. “This is useful when you want to get the crop out sooner.”
Smooth flow formulation technology also makes it easy to apply, said Mr Goodson. “It is stable in dilution with smooth flow characteristics to minimise wear and reduce blockages.”
