Application to import new fungicide to combat cereal diseases
Views are sought on an application to introduce Revystar fungicide into New Zealand, for use against brown rust and other leaf fungi.
The applicant is BASF New Zealand Limited.

BASF is seeking approval for Revystar to be used via ground-based and aerial application methods on cereal crops.
This publicly notified application enables people to provide us with information they believe we should be aware of, such as beneficial or adverse effects additional to those described by the applicant.
