BASF Technical Marketing Manager Caren Schmidt had 10 minutes to tell the Commodity Classic attendees at a Mini WIN session last week about Xanthion™ In-furrow fungicide, which received Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration in October in time for use on corn this season.
“Xanthion is our newest in-furrow fungicide for corn, and it’s the first in-furrow fungicide to combine a traditional, a chemical active ingredient, and a biological active ingredient,” she said during an interview with Cindy.
Caren said adding the biological broadens the spectrum and length of disease control, plus adds certain plant health benefits beyond disease control. She said growers have been really positive about this new fungicide.
“It’s all about getting the corn crop off to the best start possible, and growers are looking for any tool they can utilize for that,” Caren said.
