BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) has received registration for Merivon fungicide from Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency.
New for the 2021 growing season, Merivon fungicide harnesses the power of two active ingredients, Xemium (fluxapyroxad) and AgCelence (pyraclostrobin) to address key diseases such as black rot and bitter rot in apples, and Septoria leaf spot and botrytis gray mold in blueberries. It’s also registered in stone fruit, leafy vegetables, cucurbits, strawberries, root and bulb vegetables.
“With its unique combination of active ingredients, Merivon fungicide works across disease lifecycles providing continuous redistribution and extended residual protection even under adverse conditions,” said Trevor Latta, brand manager, corn, soybeans & horticulture with BASF. “The combination of the two active ingredients offers more consistent disease control to help maximize yield and quality potential for growers.”
