Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is proposing registration for the sale and use of BASF’s Revysol Fungicide Technical, BAS 752 RC, Belyan, Cevya, Lenvyor, Maxtima, and Relenya, containing the technical grade active ingredient mefentrifluconazole, to control various fungal pests in field crops, fruits, specialty crops and golf course turf.
An evaluation of available scientific information found that, under the approved conditions of use, the health and environmental risks and the value of the pest control products are acceptable.
Mefentrifluconazole is a new conventional active ingredient for disease management in certain field crops, fruits, specialty crops and golf course turf. It inhibits spore germination, mycelial growth, and sporulation of the fungus on the leaf surface. Mefentrifluconazole is a systemic and selective fungicide. BASF’s Revysol (mefentrifluconazole) has received registrations in the EU, the Americas, and South Korea with further registrations in Asia Pacific anticipated soon, covering over 40 crops.
This consultation is open for comment from 2 August 2019 to 16 September 2019 (45 calendar days).
