Syngenta enhances control of dollar spot and other turf diseases with new Posterity and Secure Action fungicides

  • Posterity® fungicide delivers powerful protection as the most active SDHI in the turf market
  • Secure® Action™ brings a boost of acibenzolar-S-methyl to the industry’s leading fungicide
  • New fungicides provide enhanced control of the No. 1 disease in golf course turf
    
GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, July 31, 2018 – Syngenta has launched two new fungicides for the turf market, Posterity and Secure Action, which deliver proven, long-lasting control of dollar spot as well as other common turf diseases. 

Posterity, the most-active SDHI in the turf market, provides long-lasting dollar spot control, holding strong for up to 28 days. Additionally, it delivers robust and consistent control of spring dead spot and fairy ring. It’s a solid rotation partner for agronomic programs to protect cool- and warm-season turf.

“Posterity was engineered to uniquely provide power and endurance, when controlling key diseases,” says Steve Dorer, fungicide brand manager for turf at Syngenta. “It was designed for greater affinity to binding sites in the pathogen, to provide more consistent control that superintendents need for these common but tough-to-control diseases.” 

Secure Action includes a boost of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) to further improve golf’s leading multi-site contact fungicide, Secure. Secure Action helps condition turf, so it performs at its best during the season and quickly recovers from biotic stress, like dollar spot, and abiotic stress, like drought and heat. The enhanced formulation provides increased disease control — including a 21-day interval for dollar spot control and suppression of bacterial wilt.

“With the addition of ASM, Secure Action kick-starts the plant’s natural defenses for increased disease control and overall turf quality,” explains Mike Agnew, technical services manager for turf at Syngenta. “Research has shown that ASM works best when used throughout the entire season. Rotating Secure Action with Daconil® Action™ or Heritage® Action™ fungicides provides superintendents with a very powerful result in terms of drought mitigation, improved disease control and the ability to recover from abiotic stress for their entire course.”

Posterity will be available Aug. 1, and Syngenta anticipates Secure Action will be available in early September.
