BASF is working on bringing a new fungicide to market — Revysol.The company is currently seeking regulatory approval in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for its newest active ingredient.
Revysol fungicide will be available in customized formulations to provide growers with a high-performing disease control solution to help maximize yield potential and quality. Pending regulatory approval, Revysol fungicide will be introduced to the North American market for the 2020 growing season.
“We are pleased to reach this regulatory milestone and get one step closer to providing Revysol fungicide disease control advantages to our customers in North America,” said Paul Rea, Senior Vice President, BASF Crop Protection North America. “Revysol fungicide is an outstanding solution for managing diseases and is set to significantly outperform current products in the market.”
Revysol fungicide is BASF’s newest triazole fungicide and trials have shown exceptional biological performance against several economically significant diseases. Its unique molecule will help enable long-term use of this vital chemistry class as global regulatory pressures increase.

The fungicide will also provide a new option for the turf and ornamental management and seed treatment markets. In addition, Revysol fungicide will play an important role in integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
“Revysol fungicide will be manufactured at our production facility in Hannibal, Missouri, demonstrating the strategic importance of this fungicide to North American markets,” said Rea. “Our facilities in Hannibal offer the best possible conditions to quickly accommodate this latest innovation from BASF and to meet customer demands.”
“Revysol fungicide is the result of years of research and expertise. It was designed to meet the highest level of regulatory standards while helping growers manage their toughest disease challenges, including resistant pathogens.
