Bayer CropScience, based in Monheim, Germany, has sold its Rovral and Sportak fungicide businesses to FMC Corp. of Philadelphia.

The sale comes at a time when Bayer is restructuring its crop protection business, according to a news release.

The active ingredient in Rovral is iprodione; for Sportak, it's prochloraz.

Rovral is labeled for control of diseases, such as brown rot, shot hole, botrytis bunch rot and early blight. Among the crops it's approved for are tree nuts, grapes, potatoes, onions, lettuce and carrots, according to the label.

Sportak is labeled in other countries, such as Australia, for post-harvest treatment of tropical fruit, including avocados and mangoes; pineapple disease in sugar cane setts at planting and dollar spot in turf, according to the label.
