BASF Merivon Fungicide for Specialty Crops

Cindy Zimmerman

basf-walkerWe learned more about BASF Merivon® fungicide at the company’s recent media event from Scott Walker, biology project leader.

“We have gotten federal registration for expansion of Merivon on specialty crops,” Walker told us during a stop on the tour of the BASF research farm in North Carolina. “It includes strawberries, fruit and tree nuts, leafy vegetables like lettuce and spinach, the brassica group such as broccoli, as well as onions and the bulb vegetables.”

Walker says Merivon, which is one of the BASF products powered by Xemium, offers broad spectrum disease protection as well as plant health benefits such as stress tolerance and improved growth efficiency. During the event, he talked specifically about its use on apples and almonds.
