A new fungicide that offers fast and continuous control of key diseases in fruits and vegetables has received Canadian registration. Cevya, a product of BASF, features the active ingredient Revsol. Apples, potatoes and sugar beets are among the targeted fruits and vegetables.

“Cevya fungicide is a systematic fungicide providing preventative and post infection control of key diseases for growers challenged with resistance and seeking to maximize their yields,” Trevor Latta, corn, soybean and horticulture brand manager, Agricultural Solutions Canada, said. “The fungicide controls biotypes that may have developed resistance to other Group 3, 7, 9 and 11 fungicides.”

Cevya, a demethylation inhibitor (DMI), features an isopropanol-azole chemistry that helps ensure binding capacity and adaptability through its molecule flexibility. It offers control even on plant pathogen strains that are insensitive to DMIs.

“Revysol fungicide, the active ingredient in Cevya fungicide, is the result of years of research and expertise,” Jeff Bertholet, technical service manager, Agricultural Solutions Canada, said. “It was designed to help growers manage their toughest disease challenges, including resistant plant pathogens. It underlines BASF’s dedication to research and development to provide innovative crop protection solutions to our Canadian growers.”
