Press release: Opus Team now available for flax growers

The Dutch Board for the Authorisation of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (Ctgb) has re-registered the fungicide Opus Team, and extended the authorisation with several crops including flax. This is most welcomed by the Dutch flax growers, who urgently demand effective fungicides for mildew control.

The extension of the Opus Team label was on request of BASF, in close collaboration with Plantum as the coordinator on the availability of plant protection products for flax growing. On behalf of the sod production sector BASF and Plantum as well requested label extension for sod production (turf grass), but unfortunately this could not be honored.

The Dutch Minor Use Fund financially supported the request for label extension for flax and sod production.
