BASF has launched two new fungicides for the turf market. Maxtima fungicide and Navicon Intrinsic brand fungicide feature the new Revysol active ingredient and provide broad-spectrum control on diseases such as dollar spot, anthracnose and spring dead spot.

This unique chemistry is the only in its class to be designated Reduced Risk candidate by the Environmental Protection Agency. Navicon Intrinsic brand fungicide also delivers plant health benefits supporting turf to handle the toughest pressures. Unlike older demethylation inhibitors (DMIs) in the market, Maxtima fungicide and Navicon Intrinsic brand fungicide are the first isopropanol-azoles, a unique chemistry that ensures excellent binding capacity and adaptability through its molecule flexibility. This offers control even on plant pathogen strains that are insensitive to DMIs.

"With Maxtima fungicide and Navicon Intrinsic brand fungicide, turf professionals have two powerful new tools for their rotational programs that simply did not exist with the current DMIs on the market," said Brian Thompson, U.S. Marketing Manager, Golf and Lawncare, Professional & Specialty Solutions, BASF.

Maxtima fungicide and Navicon Intrinsic brand fungicides have outstanding rainfastness and help provide effective and longer-lasting control of turfgrass diseases, like anthracnose, fairy ring, spring dead spot and dollar spot. With a unique mode of action, they deliver superior activity regardless of temperature at application, all season long.

Dr. Jim Kerns, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist of Turfgrass Pathology, NC State University has been working with the two new products for over five years applying them to research trials throughout North Carolina. "We applied Maxtima fungicide to creeping bentgrass and ultra-dwarf bermudagrass greens during periods of the year where other DMIs are usually phytotoxic, but we had not observed any phyto damage," Kerns said.
