Priaxor® D fungicide is a combination fungicide featuring the same active ingredient as in Priaxor® fungicide and tetraconazole.
Priaxor D fungicide includes three modes of action to help manage resistant frogeye leaf spot in soybeans while providing Advanced Plant Health benefits, including increased growth efficiency and stress tolerance.
How It Works
Priaxor D fungicide is a combination of F500® and Xemium® fungicide, the same active ingredients as in Priaxor fungicide from BASF, combined with tetraconazole. Priaxor fungicide provides excellent disease control and proven Advanced Plant Health benefits in soybean crops. These active ingredients, combined with tetraconazole, will increase the control of strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot.
Priaxor D Fungicide Performs in the Field
In Mid-South field trials, soybean acres treated with Priaxor D fungicide had a 1.8 severity of strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot on a 10-point scale. Acres treated with Priaxor fungicide alone experienced a 3.5 disease severity. The untreated check experienced 7.0 disease severity, demonstrating the need to use an effective triazole to control strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot.
When to Apply Priaxor D Fungicide
When a susceptible soybean variety is planted and strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot is suspected or confirmed in the region, BASF recommends an application of Priaxor D fungicide. An application of Priaxor D fungicide provides excellent control of disease, including strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot, while providing Advanced Plant Health benefits.
State registrations for Priaxor D fungicide are expected in time for the 2015 growing season. Contact your local authorized BASF retailer for more information on Priaxor D fungicide state registrations and product availability.
Where Priaxor D Fungicide Will Help Growers the Most
Priaxor D fungicide will be a much-needed option for growers in Mid-South states experiencing high levels of strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot, including Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
