As farmers plan for 2020, BASF technical market manager Paula Halabicki encourages farmers to plan for their fungicide application. “We don’t know what Mother Nature is going to throw our way, just like we saw this past year. It’s really our job as farmers to protect our crops so they never have a bad day and produce as much as possible; fungicides are an integral part of that.” BASF has a new active ingredient called Revysol. “It is a brand new Group 3 fungicide and it is really unique in how it moves through the plant really quickly and lasts for a long time.” This active ingredient is available in several customized products, including Veltyma fungicide in corn; Revytek fungicide in soybeans and Provysol fungicide in potatoes and sugarbeets.
