Revysol® fungicide: the newest AI from BASF

A new tool for disease and resistance management

To provide growers with a new tool for disease and resistance management, BASF developed Revysol® fungicide, a new active ingredient and the first and only isopropanol-azole of its kind in the market. Revysol fungicide and its related products will help growers in many regions address issues related to northern corn leaf blight, cercospora leaf spot, frogeye leaf spot and powdery mildew, among other common diseases.

 

Revysol fungicide is branded Veltyma fungicide in corn, Revytek fungicide in soybeans, Provysol fungicide in potatoes, peanuts and sugar beets, Cevya® fungicide in tree nuts, grapes, pome and stone fruit, and Relenya fungicide seed treatment in cereal crops. The Revysol branded fungicides will provide long-lasting residual control, protective and curative action against many weather conditions, and extended crop protection. The products have an outstanding ability to penetrate leaves and collect within them to work faster and longer than other chemistries.

 

“Veltyma, Revytek, Provysol, Cevya and Relenya, powered by Revysol fungicide, present a whole new class of chemistry – something truly different and effective to expand growers’ chemical rotations,” said Paula Halabicki, BASF Technical Marketing Manager. “Revysol fungicide will be the foundation of all new chemistries on the product roadmap.”

 

The Revysol fungicide AI difference 
Revysol fungicide is unlike any competitor in the market due to its exceptional biological performance against several economically significant diseases. In recent BASF trials, the new AI lead to extended crop protection, helping growers get the most bushels out of their crops as possible. Crop-specific benefits include:

  • In corn, Veltyma fungicide will bring Plant Health benefits, efficacy, consistency and simplicity to growers’ fields and operations. This powerful fungicide will help corn growers struggling with yield-robbing diseases such as gray leaf spot and tar spot. 
  • For soybean growers, Revytek fungicide offers Plant Health benefits, three powerful modes of action and long-lasting residual to provide disease control on some of the toughest soybean diseases, including target spot and frogeye.
  • For sugar beet, potato and peanut growers, Provysol fungicide provides excellent disease control and helps make subsequent treatments more effective. The product targets low-growing plants and helps protect growers’ crops early in the season. 
  • In tree nuts, grapes, pome and stone fruit, Cevya fungicide provides a mode of action complementary to BASF’s specialty fungicide portfolio. It also has a highly favorable regulatory profile, and application flexibility around weather, insect and irrigation activities.
  • In cereal crops, Relenya fungicide seed treatment will protect the seed and root zone from pathogenic fungi during the early development of the plant. Revysol fungicide, and its related product brands, will be available to growers for the 2020 planting season. Growers can learn more by contacting their local BASF representative.
