Application to import Revystar Fungicide to combat cereal diseases

Your views are sought on an application from BASF New Zealand Limited (BASF) to introduce Revystar Fungicide into New Zealand.

One of the active ingredients in Revystar Fungicide, mefentrifluconazole, is new to New Zealand, and has been approved for use in Europe, the USA and in Australia in 2019. The other active ingredient, fluxapyroxad, is currently approved in New Zealand.

Revystar Fungicide is an emulsifiable concentrate. The applicant is seeking approval for both ground based and aerial application methods for use on cereal crops to combat brown rust and other diseases.

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