New crop protection products for soybean growers and specialty fruit growers from BASF Crop Protection have been approved for use. The EPA gave its final approval to the two fungicides today.

One of them is Priaxor™ (active ingredients: pyraclostrobin + fluxapyroxad, 1:1 ratio) for soybeans.

BASF technical marketing manager Nick Fassler says a new active ingredient, Xemium® (fluxapyroxad), is added to BASF’s Headline® fungicide, which soybean growers are familiar with in the Midwest.

Fassler says Priaxor™ has been tested in soybean crops for the past three years and will give growers consistency.

"What we’ve seen in our replicated research with universities as well as contract researchers and on our own farm sites is improvement in that performance so that the percent of time we’re improving yield above and beyond the untreated check,” Fassler tells Brownfield Ag News, “What we’ve seen in the past in these trials is about a 4% improvement over Headline® so we’re really comparing that to the standard in the marketplace.”

Priaxor™ for soybeans and Merivon® (active ingredients: pyraclostrobin + fluxapyroxad, 1:2 ratio) for pome and stone fruits such as apples and cherries will be available nationally in 2012. Growers are asked to contact their local BASF retailer to determine if it’s available in that market. And, they can check online for a list of states as they get registration.
