Septoria leaf blotch, the biggest threat to your crops

Every year, farmers face different threats from diseases in their cereal crops. The biggest threat to their yields, income and the future of their farm, however, is always Septoria leaf blotch. This disease is getting increasingly difficult to control due to developing resistance.

We at BASF know the challenges farmers face. Through dedicated research and extensive testing in the field, we aim to offer the best possible protection against Septoria. Revysol® product solutions will ensure healthy crops, even in situations of resistance. And that means farmers will maximize their yield and quality leading to higher profit.

Managing a farm is getting more and more complex

Farmers have to deal with many different situations managing a farm professionally. BASF strives to offer simple solutions to increase efficiency in farm operations. This saves time and resources and leads to higher productivity and profitability.

The versatility, broader application window and lower water volume application of Revysol® means it is the ideal solution to simplify decision-making, planning and on-farm operations.

Challenging weather conditions

Adverse weather conditions are frequent during T2 timing, with more than 75percent of days affected by cold, rain and/or UV radiation. These conditions put fungicide protection at risk. Farmers need to rely on product performance regardless of weather conditions. Thanks to the reliable, long-lasting performance of Revysol® in varying weather conditions, crops and investments are secured at application and beyond, and follow-up sprays can be avoided.

In all regions around the world, corn belongs to the most important crops. It is primarily used for food, animal feed and biofuels. In 2018, farmers grew corn on more than 190 million hectares worldwide, producing over 1 billion tons.

Corn farmers are facing many different challenges. Adverse weather, volatile commodity prices, weeds, insects, disease, improper nutrient management and many other factors can threaten a farmer’s operations. But these challenges can also create opportunities to grow corn more efficiently.

Rice is an important staple food crop, playing a critical role in ensuring food security and alleviating poverty. In 2018, farmers grew rice on 160 million hectares (ha) worldwide, producing 486 million tons of milled rice. Nearly 90% of this production came from Asia.

Outstanding performance against sheath blight

Rice farmers lose in average 37 percent of their yield every year due to pests and diseases. Sheath blight and blast are the most economically significant diseases affecting the rice production worldwide. In recent years, sheath blight has increased in its importance especially in intensified production systems. Revysol® is highly active against sheath blight securing yield and maximizing income.

Superior performance under preventative and curative conditions

Application timing is critical for optimal control of sheath blight. Ideally the disease should be monitored periodically for making successful disease management decision, which means, product applications as close as possible to the onset of disease. Most fungicides need to be applied before the disease occurs to be effective. Revysol® has arrived to give farmers more flexibility of their fungicide applications. Due to its preventative (no visible symptoms) and curative (first symptoms visible) properties, Revysol® can help to prevent the crop from severe damage even when sprayed at the beginning of infection.

Superb long-lasting activity

Numerous applications might incur in substantial economic losses. A fungicide with a feature to protect the crop for a long period of time is highly appreciated by farmers. With Revysol®, rice farmers can maximize the return on investment due to its excellent long-lasting activity.

Soybeans are a valuable source of oil and protein and thus a significant component in human and animal nutrition. In 2017, the global planted area of soybeans reached approximately 125 million hectares (ha), producing in total over 330 million metric tons of soybeans – and the trend is rising.

The Americas are by far the largest producer, accounting for almost 90 percent of global soy production. Every year, American soybean farmers face significant yield losses due to diseases which not only cause a decrease in the quantity of the produced grain, but also on its quality. In the United States, responsible for more than 40 percent of soybean production, frogeye leaf spot and target spot are among the most important soybean diseases, accounting for 30 percent of reported yield losses.
