Zoxis®, a broad-spectrum fungicide from Arysta LifeScience, has been successfully re-registered for use in the UK, and can now be used on a wider range of crops.
Benefits of the product, which contains azoxystrobin, include control of diseases such as septoria, fusarium and rust, as well as promoting beneficial physiological and greening effects. It offers translaminar, systemic and protectant activity and can be used effectively in resistance management programmes.
Following successful re-registration by the Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD), Zoxis has gained a range of additional uses, including oilseed rape, oats and various field vegetables. It can also now be used in-furrow for control of rhizoctonia in potato.
These are in addition to the existing registration, which includes application on wheat, barley and asparagus. The current registration will be revoked with effect from June 30, 2018, with a 12-month grace period for use, storage and disposal.
