Why Adexar?

Adexar® is the best all round cereal fungicide season after season, year after year!

Adexar® is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) and continues to deliver the highest profitability in low and high disease situations.

Based on the leading SDHI (Xemium®) and the strongest rust and Septoria azole (epoxiconazole), Adexar® delivers the very best protection for both crop and profitability. Combining the two active ingredients ensures that relevant fungal diseases are controlled in a particularly secure and prolonged way.

Adexar® is distinguished as a combination product through its broad range of effects against the most important pathogens in numerous crops. The combination of Xemium with epoxiconazole – a carboxamide (SDHI) with an azole – has made it possible to formulate a new, high-quality broad-spectrum fungicide.

Adexar® is proven to deliver reliable performance with consistent returns. Following our claim in Spring 2016 that Adexar® could deliver £20 extra margin per hectare over Aviator®235 Xpro, a number of farmers across the UK decided to test it out for themselves. In each case, Adexar® out yielded Aviator®235 Xpro delivering way in excess of £20 extra margin per hectare.

Xemium® is the first choice at T1 and T2 – covering all the major diseases at each timing

Xemium® combines premium preventable and curative activity for reliable and flexible use, delivering improved disease control, higher yields and improved quality.

Containing Xemium®, Adexar® is the product of choice in high disease pressure situations. Even in low disease seasons, other benefits such as improved water use efficiency can provide an additional 10% or more yield (ADAS, 2011-13). For seven years, Adexar® has provided certainty as the best all-round product for controlling septoria and yellow rust in AHDB trials.

Earn more than an extra £23/ha by using Adexar®

Adexar® is a consistent performer season after season and continues to deliver the highest profitability in low and high disease situations. Based on the leading SDHI (Xemium®) and the strongest rust and Septoria azole (epoxiconazole), Adexar® delivers the very best protection for both crop and profitability. In Spring 2016, Clive Bailye from The Farming Forum (TFF) decided to test the BASF claim that T1 Adexar® and T2 Librax® could deliver £20/ha margin over Aviator. Clive was admittedly sceptical, but BASF was up for the challenge, and so was he. The claim paid off, and not only did he achieve the £20/ha promise, he far surpassed it and the end result was a £57/ha margin over Aviator.
