RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — BASF has announced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration of Xzemplar fungicide andLexicon IntrinsicT brand fungicide.
Both products contain the active ingredient fluxapyroxad, brand name Xemium, a new and versatile SDHI (succinate-dehydrogenase inhibitor). Fluxapyroxad is a highly mobile and effective active ingredient that provides both preventative and curative activity on key turfgrass pathogens. Xzemplar fungicide is a solo product containing only fluxapyroxad. Fluxapyroxad delivers unmatched dollar spot control and will be a key product for turfgrass managers when Rhizoctonia spp. and other patch diseases are present.
