September 28, 2015

FIFRA Section 2(ee) recommendations expand the application profiles of Lexicon® Intrinsic® and Xzemplar® brand fungicides

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, Sept. 28, 2015 – BASF announced that it has issued FIFRA Section 2(ee) recommendations expanding the application profiles of two of its leading fungicides in California and Texas, giving superintendents and turf professionals a broader range of protection against four troublesome turfgrass diseases.

The FIFRA Section 2(ee) recommendations address the use of Xzemplar fungicide against fairy ring, leaf spot caused by Bipolaris spp., and Rhizoctonia leaf and sheath spot; and the use of Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide against spring dead spot.

“BASF is committed to delivering solutions that help superintendents achieve the highest quality turf possible,” said Jeff Vannoy, BASF Turf Product Manager. “Lexicon Intrinsic and Xzemplar brand fungicides deliver outstanding results, and now provide new options for disease control in Texas and California.”

Offering both preventive and curative properties, Xzemplar fungicide delivers quick knockdown and long-lasting protection against dollar spot and other tough diseases found on fairways, tees and greens.

Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide is one of the newest innovations from BASF, providing powerful disease control and plant health benefits. Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide is a broad-spectrum fungicide that controls 27 diseases and has long-lasting residual of up to 28 days. Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide enhances growth efficiency, resulting in deeper, denser roots and increased tolerance to mechanical or environmental stresses.
