MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 7, 2015 /CNW/ - BASF is proud to announce the registration of CARAMBA® fungicide in Eastern Canada on corn for suppression of Fusarium and Gibberella ear rot (Fusarium graminearum and Gibberella zeae) for the 2015 growing season.
"As part of BASF's commitment to bringing new and innovative solutions to the marketplace, we are thrilled to announce the registration of CARAMBA fungicide on corn in Eastern Canada," said Piero Castro, Brand Manager for Fungicides and Insecticides at BASF Canada. "The active ingredient in CARAMBA, metconazole, has been proven to provide excellent results in reducing DON levels as well as increasing grain yield and quality."
CARAMBA is a systemic triazole fungicide with the unique ability to manage fungal diseases like Fusarium. For Fusarium and Gibberella ear rot suppression, CARAMBA should be applied (as a preventative application) between full silk emergence to silk browning.
