Agrochemical company BASF has received Irish authorisation for a new fungicide active ingredient, Revysol. Revysol (common name mefentrifluconazole) is an isopropanol-azole and is the first of its class to be introduced to the market.

Two products containing the new active ingredient, Lentyma and Revystar XL, have been cleared for use in wheat, barley and oats, and offer strong broad-spectrum activity to a host of key cereal diseases.
