BASF’s Cevya fungicide receives additional crop registrations in California

California vegetable growers can now use Cevya fungicide from BASF on additional crops after receiving registration from the state’s Department of Pesticide Regulation. These additional crop groups include cucurbits, fruiting vegetables and root vegetables, except sugar beet.

Cevya fungicide delivers strong disease control against powdery mildews, Phomopsis, Alternaria leaf spot, Alternaria leaf blight, Cercospora leaf spot, black mold, early blight, Gummy stem blight and Anthracnose.

“Cevya fungicide has provided grape, tree, and fruit growers with a unique tool for disease control, and now with the addition of cucurbits and vegetable crops to the label, even more California growers can improve the quality of their crops to help maximize their yield,” said Taylor Barnhill, BASF specialty crop fungicide product manager.

Cevya provides long-lasting residual control against many diseases for extended crop protection under varied weather conditions, according to BASF. It has a highly favorable regulatory profile that may help BASF obtain registrations worldwide, facilitating trade for growers. The active ingredient was also the first DMI to receive the Reduced Risk classification by the U.S. EPA, which means Cevya fungicide can deliver dependable crop protection even as other DMI fungicide registrations are being withdrawn. Cevya fungicide is the first and only isopropanol-azole on the market, making it a strong resistance management tool.
