Mefentrifluconazole Crop Safety – 2023

Light purple flower on green climbing, leafy vine

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 90 crop safety trials on 26 environmental horticulture plant species or genera during 2019 to 2022. This summary contains data across all reports available through IR-4 since 2019.
Twenty-six species or genera exhibited no or minimal injury after drench or foliar treatments of Mefentrifluconazole. Eighteen of the tested plants exhibited no injury across multiple trials, while the remaining eight plants showed the same with less than 3 trials. All twenty-six species or genera could be added to the label based on this data, provided that BASF has similar results.
