Syngenta debuts fluazinam for US turf
Syngenta has introduced the fungicide, Secure (Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha’s fluazinam 500 g/litre), for use on golf course turf in the US. Fluazinam is an established active ingredient that received its first US approval for use with residential exposure in July ( Agrow No 645, p 20). Secure provides excellent control of dollar spot and ten other turf diseases, Syngenta points out. Fluazinam is a multi-site, contact fungicide with very low risk of developing resistance, the company adds. Secure is seen as an ideal rotation partner for Syngenta’s turf fungicide, Daconil Action (chlorothalonil + acibenzolar-S-methyl), for season-long disease control.
