January 20, 2021 - CALGARY, AB, January 20, 2021 – Today, BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) received Health Canada PMRA label expansion for Serifel®. New for the 2021 growing season, Serifel is an innovative biological fungicide with multiple modes of action now available for use on a range of fruiting, leafy, root and cucurbit vegetables, and berries. Serifel was previously registered for use in targeting powdery mildew and botrytis in grapes.
“Serifel’s strong performance and low use rate will make Serifel fungicide an excellent addition to growers’ current disease management programs,” said Anne McRae, Technical Services Specialist, Horticulture, BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions.
Whether it is used as a tank-mix or rotation partner with products like Kumulus®, Sercadis ® or Vivando® on registered crops, Serifel compliments established disease management programs, offering alternate modes of action for resistance disease management right up to harvest. Serifel can also be used for organic production.
