Mefentrifluconazole Crop Safety – 2022

Garden phlox flowers

Research Summary Abstract

Avelyo (mefentrifluconazole) is a fungicide developed by BASF that has been registered for use since May 2020. It is used for the control of diseases such as anthracnose, powdery mildew, leaf spot, scab, rust, and blight of environmental horticulture crops. The IR-4 Project has completed 59 crop safety trials on 25 environmental horticulture plant species or genera during 2019 to 2021. This summary contains data across all reports available through IR-4 since 2019.
Twenty-five species or genera exhibited no or minimal injury after drench or foliar treatments of Mefentrifluconazole. Eight of the tested plants exhibited no injury across multiple trials, while the remaining 17 plants showed the same with less than 3 trials. All twenty-five species or genera could be added to the label based on this data, provided that BASF has similar results.
