BASF Launches New Pulse Fungicide in Western Canada

BASF is launching RevyPro, a new fungicide for pulse crops, in Western Canada for spring 2024, a May 16 news release said. RevyPro is the first Canadian Revysol-based pulse fungicide.

“Our goal in the development of RevyPro was to create a product that would provide efficacy, whether resistance is present or not, to equip western Canadian growers with an enhanced solution to address the challenges they face,” Bethany Wyatt, technical marketing specialist for fungicides at BASF, said in the release.

RevyPro provides consistent performance on early and late western Canadian pulse diseases, including resistant strains. Using the active ingredient Mefentrifluconazole, Revysol’s unique FRAC Group 3 mode of action allows it to bind to the target site, the pathogen more powerfully than conventional triazole fungicides, the release said.

#CortevaTalks brings you a short update with Cereal Herbicides Category Manager, Alister McRobbie, on how to get the most out of Broadway® Star.

Significant populations of grassweeds, including ryegrass and brome, can threaten winter wheat yields. Spring applications of a contact graminicide, such as Broadway Star from Corteva Agriscience, can clear problem weeds, allowing crops to grow away in the spring.

Broadway Star (pyroxsulam + florasulam) controls ryegrass, sterile brome, wild oats and a range of broad-leaved weeds such as cleavers. It can be applied to winter wheat up until GS32, but the earlier the application is made, the smaller the weed, and the greater the benefit to the crop. Weeds should be actively growing. A good rule of thumb is that if your grass needs cutting, conditions are right to apply Broadway Star.
