BASF’s Provysol fungicide receives label updates
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., January 27, 2021 – Provysol® fungicide, powered by Revysol® fungicide, the first and only isopropanol-azole on the market, has recently received EPA and state approvals for updates to its label including:
· Reduced Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI) to seven days for sugarbeets
· Suppression of powdery mildew in sugarbeets
· Approval for use in-furrow in sugarcane
· Addition of fruiting vegetables and cucurbits
· Reduced plant back interval restrictions to zero days for rotational crops including cotton, rice, sunflowers, alfalfa and onions
Provysol fungicide has been registered since 2019 for use on sugarbeets, potatoes, peanuts, legume vegetables, canola and citrus.
“These additions to the label, combined with the fast-acting disease control and long-lasting residual protection that Provysol fungicide provides, gives more growers the opportunity to use Provysol fungicide as the foundation for their season-long disease control strategy,” said Tim Parry, BASF Diversified Crops Fungicide Product Manager.
