Turf disease Control Challenge

Managing turfgrass disease and disease resistance development are both of high importance. When many of the products available to control troublesome disease work through the same mode of action, it can be difficult to create a fungicide rotation program that works well at
tackling the disease and managing development of resistance. Canadian superintendents need additional products with unique FRAC numbers to include in their programs.

Nufarm Solution

Now available in Canada, Affirm WDG fungicide offers a unique mode of action to control many tough turf diseases while helping to mitigate disease resistance development. Affirm has been a proven leader in the United States, delivering excellent control to anthracnose and rhizoctonia diseases. In Canada, superintendents can also count on Affirm for Waitea patch control and snow mould suppression.

Plus, Affirm may be tank mixed with Tourney for increased dollar spot control.

Benefits

  • Unique FRAC 19 offers a new tool for disease resistance management rotation programs
  • Controls all rhizoctonia diseases, anthracnose, and suppresses grey and pink snow mould
  • Works through contact activity for up to 14 days of control
  • Tank mix compatible, good partner with Tourney for control of listed diseases and dollar spot

Performance Tips
