BASF researchers have confirmed the discovery of a unique mode of action for INITIUM(R) fungicide, a key component of ZAMPRO(R) fungicide, currently available for sale in the U.S. The findings have shown that INITIUM fungicide
inhibits fungal activity by binding to the stigmatellin subsite in the respiratory complex III of the fungus.

This means that ZAMPRO fungicide is the first, and currently only, fungicide in this classification. ZAMPRO fungicide is not cross-resistant with other commercial fungicides, making it an ideal tool for managing fungal resistance in specialty crops. The classification has been accepted by the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC).

"ZAMPRO fungicide provides two modes of action, one of which is a completely unique class of control," said Jennifer Holland, Ph.D., Product Manager, BASF. "The fungicide is a superior solution for vegetable growers seeking control of downy mildew and late blight."

ZAMPRO fungicide is a highly selective fungicide that reliably controls a range of downy mildews and late blights when used preventatively. Its rainfastness and ability to redistribute on growing leaves keep crops protected and healthy for longer, allowing them to develop to their full potential.


ZAMPRO fungicide is the latest introduction in the BASF specialty fungicide portfolio. It's joined by proven innovations including PRISTINE(R) fungicide and MERIVON(R) fungicide.

PRISTINE fungicide is the leading fungicide used in specialty crops for the control of a wide spectrum of diseases as well as increased plant and fruit health.

MERIVON fungicide is a powerful tool in the fight against fungi in pome and stone fruits such as apples, cherries and peaches, as well as almonds and strawberries.
