In India, apples are among the most produced fruits. Also India is among the top 10 countries that produce apples in such a large quantity. Recently many Indian apple farmers are facing major occurrences of diseases such as Powdery Mildew and Scab. These diseases are ultimately harnessing the crop yield of the farms and are making it a difficult situation for farmers. To help apple farmers fight this issue, BASF, a German chemical company, has come up with a new innovation in pesticides called 'Sercadis Plus'. This new solution is offering Indian apple growers an efficient spray program so that farmers can deal with the disease management better. 

Sercadis Plus has Xemium as an active ingredient and an internationally acclaimed DMI (Demethylase Inhibitor), both in combination to manage a broad range of diseases, especially Apple Scab and Powdery Mildew. 

BASF has been constantly collaborating with its customers and partners to explore the needs of farmers and evolve with their needs. Every then and now, the brand is bringing innovative solutions to the market to help the farmers. In the past few years, fungicides like 'Merivon', 'Signum' and 'Acriso' have also been launched by BASF for the better health of apple orchards.
