Priaxor: Preliminary research results show that upcoming BASF product Priaxor fungicide has performed well in field research. Priaxor is expected to receive U.S. EPA registration in early 2012.
Field trials have been conducted each year since 2009, and preliminary 2011 data further indicates that Priaxor will provide long-lasting preventative and disease-stopping protection in potatoes.
Potatoes treated with Priaxor showed 17.5 percent less incidence of the early blight than those treated with a current fungicide offering.
The combination of Xemium brand fungicide and the active ingredient in Headline fungicide provides a new level of disease control that will provide healthier plants, higher yield potentials and improved crop quality.
