BASF Canada has received registration approval from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency for Veltyma fungicide.

Veltyma provides broad spectrum control against key leaf diseases on multiple crops including corn, potatoes, wheat, and soybeans, including Group 3 resistant biotypes, says the company.

The product is registered for broad spectrum control against northern corn leaf blight, tar spot, common rust, eyespot, and gray leaf spot in corn. It is also registered for protection against early blight, black dot, and brown spot in potatoes. In wheat, it’s registered for control against septoria leaf blotch, leaf rust, stripe rust, and tan spot.

Veltyma contains pyraclostrobin (Group 11) and mefentrifluconazole (Group 3), a combination also known as Revysol. BASF says that Revysol’s unique molecular structure binds target enzymes more powerfully than other Group 3 products, providing performance on a broad spectrum of diseases.

“We know that farmers need new and innovative solutions to manage issues today, while at the same time, addressing the challenges of tomorrow. We are thrilled to be able to bring Veltyma – with the new active ingredient Revysol – to Canadian growers,” says Trevor Latta, brand manager for corn, soybean and horticulture. “Veltyma provides growers with the best of both worlds: multiple modes of systemic residual activity while delivering proven plant health benefits, including increased growth efficiency and greater yield potential. With the launch of Veltyma, we are setting a new standard of disease control.”

Veltyma will be available for purchase in the 2022 growing season.
