Turf disease Control Challenge

Maintaining top quality turf is a tough job. Every season brings new disease challenges for sod farmers and superintendents. In the high value turfgrass market, diseases pose one of the biggest challenges, leaving growers looking for new options for broad-spectrum disease control.

Nufarm Solution

Tourney fungicide delivers a new generation of broad-spectrum disease control for exceptional turf quality, while reducing the overall environmental load. The active ingredient, metconazole, is one of the most active and has the lowest use rate, compared to other demethylation inhibitor (DMI) fungicides.

Benefits

  • Systemic activity works quickly to control a broad spectrum of the toughest turf diseases
  • New generation fungicide delivers exceptional turf quality
  • Low use rates lessen the environmental load
  •  Most active DMI on the market, providing fast, effective and consistent control for 14 to 21 days
  • Works as a preventive fungicide to prevent spore formation and inhibit mycelial growth
  • Use in a regularly scheduled spray program for optimal disease control – and in combination and/or rotation with fungicides that have a different mode of action (not Group 3)

favour disease development.
Apply in 8 L of water per 100 m2 for foliar blight and 8–16 L of water per 100 m2 for basal rot.
Brown patch 8.4-11.2 14 days Use preventively when conditions
favour disease development.
