Syngenta has launched a new fungicide for high-performance turf disease control. Instrata contains the exceptional long-lasting residual control of fludioxonil – the first new contact active ingredient for turf diseases control for over 20 years.
Additionally, the complementary three-way mix of new fludioxonil with the proven propiconazole and chlorothalonil targets disease at every stage of the life-cycle and gives both contact and systemic activity in
Syngenta Professional Products Manager, Simon Elsworth, highlighted that new fludioxonil protects on the leaf, in the thatch and at the soil surface, giving outstanding efficacy and making it especially useful in high disease pressure situations at any time of the year.
“Independent UK trials have proven Instrata can be up to 45% more effective and more persistent in the control of Fusarium Patch, compared to iprodione or myclobutanil. The result has been consistently better turf quality up to six weeks after application,” he reported. Better Anthracnose control with Instrata improved over winter turf quality by up to 20%, compared to iprodione.
