Media Advisory - BASF announces registration of Headline AMP

Improves disease control and provides preventative and post-infection activity for corn and cereals

TORONTO, May 12, 2016 /CNW/ -

What: BASF announces registration of Headline AMP, a new premium fungicide that delivers enhanced disease control and unique benefits of AgCelence for corn and cereal growers.

When: Now available for the 2016 growing season  

Where: Ontario and Quebec

Background:

Headline AMP controls key diseases in corn including Northern corn leaf blight, Grey leaf spot, Eye spot and Common rust. Northern corn leaf blight emerges as one of the most economically impactful disease problems, and corn seed genetics are often not a sufficient solution in many growing acres of Ontario and Quebec. In cereals, diseases controlled include Septoria, Spot blotch and Powdery mildew.

Combining two active ingredients, Headline AMP provides corn and cereal growers with multiple modes of action for reduced risk of developing fungicide resistance.

Headline is registered as a class three product in Ontario and therefore does not need an aerial permit prior to application.
