BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) recently received Health Canada PMRA label expansion for its Serifel product. Serifel (Bacillus amyloliquefaciens MBI 600 strain) is an innovative biological fungicide with multiple modes of action. New for the 2021 growing season, Serifel is available for use on a range of fruiting, leafy, root and cucurbit vegetables, including potatoes.

Serifel was previously registered for use in targeting powdery mildew and botrytis in grapes. For potatoes, Serifel will suppress early blight (Alternaria solani) in potatoes, and will partially suppress soilborne rhizoctonia stem canker or black scurf (Rhizoctonia solani) in-furrow.

“Serifel’s strong performance and low use rate will make Serifel fungicide an excellent addition to growers’ current disease management programs,” said Anne McRae, Technical Services Specialist, Horticulture, BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions.

The company notes that whether it is used as a tank-mix or rotation partner with products like Kumulus, Sercadis  or Vivando on registered crops, Serifel compliments established disease management programs, offering alternate modes of action for resistance disease management right up to harvest.

As a biological, Serifel can also be used for organic production.
