BASF files for registration of three active ingredients

Agriculture.com Staff 06/01/2010 @ 9:27am

BASF has announced it has made multi-lateral, worldwide regulatory submissions for Xemium and Initium fungicides. Both were filed with regulatory authorities in the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. BASF also submitted Alpha-cypermethrin insecticide to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for review.

Xemium, a new mode of action in disease protection, is being studied in a wide range of crops including fruits, vegetables and row crops. Initium fungicide is being researched on a number of specialty crops and will bring growers added disease protection.

"By providing a premium preventative shield for crops and a favorable environmental profile, both Xemium and Initium will give growers the confidence and convenience they need from a fungicide," says Nevin McDougall, senior vice president, BASF Agricultural Solutions, North America.

Xemium and Initium, joins BASF's fungicide portfolio of Headline, Headline AMP, Pristine, TwinLine and Caramba.

Alpha-cypermethrin joins BASF’s insecticide portfolio of Respect and Regent and Axcess insecticide seed treatment. Alpha-cypermethrin insecticide is being tested globally in several row and specialty crops.

"Alpha-cypermethrin will complement the BASF fungicide and herbicide portfolios and help us meet grower needs for valuable insecticide formulations," McDougall says.
