Application to import Revystar Fungicide to combat cereal diseases

Decision Date: 28 February 2020

The application to import Revystart Fungicide for release has been approved and the decision is published.

BASF New Zealand Limited applied to import for release Revystar Fungicide to New Zealand.

One of the active ingredients in Revystar Fungicide, mefentrifluconazole, has been approved for use in Europe, the USA and in Australia, but is new to New Zealand. The other active ingredient, fluxapyroxad, is currently approved in New Zealand.

Revystar Fungicide is an emulsifiable concentrate. BASF New Zealand Limited sought approval for both ground-based and aerial application methods for use on cereal crops to combat brown rust and other diseases.

The applicant proposed that Revystar Fungicide would provide a new mode of action against fungi and would be an important tool for farmers in reducing the development of resistance.
