Kalida™ Fungicide From FMC

Kalida Fungicide From FMCThe combined power of two active ingredients: Fluindapyr (a novel broad-spectrum succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide); and Flutrafol (next-generation DMI), Kalida Fungicide provides complete protection against a wide spectrum of tough diseases. As a foundation fungicide and geared to golf courses, Kalida provides rapid uptake, longevity, and controls tough diseases as a standalone or part of a program. Kalida™ fungicide fits well in turfgrass disease management programs, allowing superintendents to rotate chemistry and achieve outstanding results. For warm season turf, Kalida is used against: Take-All Root Rot; Bipolaris Leaf Spot; Mini Ring; Fairy Ring; and Large Patch. For cool season turf, the product is used against: Anthracnose; Brown Patch; Dollar Spot; and Fairy Ring. Labeled use sites are: greens, fairways, tees, roughs, and commercial and industrial sites. FMC recently received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for Fluindapyr, which provides broad-spectrum activity against a wide range of destructive diseases in row and specialty crops, as well as turf. “Broad-spectrum disease control is important as multiple diseases can attack at the same time,” said Diane Allemang, FMC vice president and chief marketing officer. “Our research demonstrates that fluindapyr is an effective fungicide that is an excellent mixture partner to other fungicide active ingredients and is compatible with best-in-class disease management programs.”

Celsius® XTRA From Bayer

Celsius® XTRA From BayerControlling broadleaf weeds and sedges often requires multiple solutions, leading to tank-mixing, guesswork in measuring, and other unnecessary steps in the field. The Turf and Ornamentals business of Bayer offers lawn care operators a way to control these difficult weeds in one solution—with Celsius® XTRA. If technicians do not mix products correctly, they run the risk of errors that could either burn a lawn or reduce the efficacy of the product. Celsius® XTRA provides broadleaf weed and sedge control in one broad-spectrum solution. It combines the trusted broadleaf weed control of Bayer’s Celsius with the added control of sedges, for postemergence weed control.

Safari® 20 SG Insecticide By Nufarm

PesticidesSafari® 20 SG Insecticide, a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown, controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including spotted lanternfly, Q- and B-biotype whitefly, hemlock woolly adelgid, emerald ash borer, mealybug, leafminer, fungus gnat, black vine weevil, glassy-winged sharpshooter, armored and soft scales, and lacebug—some of the most pests that affect costly trees, shrubs, and herbaceous ornamentals in the landscape. Safari Insecticide can be used for spotted lanternfly control in container and field grown ornamentals, outdoor landscapes, tree plantations, and forests and wooded areas. The product can be applied as a foliar spray, soil drench, soil injection, or basal trunk spray. For spotted lanternfly, optimal application timing is from mid-May to August. The spotted lanternfly is believed to have arrived in the United States with a shipment of landscaping stones in 2014. Since their arrival in Pennsylvania, spotted lanternflies have spread to numerous states. This damaging insect claims host to more than 70 different plant species, such as fruit, ornamental, and landscape trees (including pine, oak, walnut, poplar, willow, maple, and sycamore trees), as well as vegetables, herbs, and vines. As the lanternflies feed, they excrete a sugary substance which promotes growth of a sooty mold and can attract other pests. Over time, this can weaken and kill plants or trees.
