is a new fungicide used to control a range of plant pathogens in broad care and horticultural crops. It was advanced to the 2006. JMPR schedule of new compounds by the 38th session of the CCPR. The manufacturer has submitted information on physical and chemical properties, plant and animal metabolism, environmental fate, analytical methods, storage stability, good agricultural practices, supervised field trials, processing and livestock feeding. Inhibiting spore germination, germ tube elongation, mycelia growth, and sporulation of pathogenic fungi on the leaf surface and is registered for use against number of fungi on a wide range of crops in many countries. Boscalid is not used for direct animal treatments. Testing boscalid in sunflower in 2001 in USA and Canada. In2004 a processing study was performed testing boscalid in cotton in USA.
Boscalid was applied at a rate of 2.24 kg of boscaid as an in-furrow application. Boscalid residues in hops and processed fractions resulting from supervised trials in Germany and the Netherlands. The growing demand in for fungicides especially boscalid from the farming industry across the world is expected to drive the boscalid market
in the next few years.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has classified boscalid as suggestive evidence of carcinogenicity, but not sufficient to assess human carcinogenic potential. All these factors have contributed to the growing popularity of boscalid in the farming industry across the world. The highly effective and efficient performance of boscalid fungicide in a wide range of food crops is driving the global boscalid market since the last few years.
