Avelyo Fungicide Registered in California
Greenhouse and nursery growers in California can add Avelyo fungicide to their disease management program. With the successful registration in California, Avelyo is now available to growers in almost all states, except Hawaii, New York and Maine.
Avelyo is a broad-spectrum fungicide introduced by BASF in 2021. Avelyo contains mefentrifluconazole, which is a demethylation inhibitor or DMI fungicide (FRAC Group 3). Avelyo is registered for use against multiple fungal diseases in greenhouses, interiorscapes, nurseries and Christmas tree farms. This product isn't registered for use on residential ornamentals anywhere in the United States.
Avelyo can be applied as a foliar spray to preventively control Antharacnose, leaf spots, stem blights, powdery mildew, scabs and rusts on ornamental plants. Spray application rate ranges from 8 to 10 fl. oz. per 100 gal. for rusts and 3 to 5 fl. oz. per 100 gal. for other diseases. Avelyo can also be drenched at 2 to 3 fl. oz. per 100 gal. against root and crown diseases, such as Cylindrocladium and black root rot.
Avelyo has a long residual activity and rapid rainfastness, and it's safe on plant species tested so far.
