Nufarm Announces Novel Dual-Active Traction™ Fungicide Now Approved in California

Morrisville, N.C. (January 23, 2019) – Nufarm Americas announced it has received registration in California for Traction™ Fungicide. Traction fungicide provides a new management tool for disease control and resistance management in cool- and warm-season golf course turf. Traction launched last year, offering the market a novel combination of FRAC 29 and FRAC 3 modes of action.

“California superintendents are seeking a greater breadth of quality disease control alternatives,” said Jason Fausey, Nufarm Turf & Ornamentals Technical Services Director. “Traction’s proprietary formula provides exceptional control of a wide range of foliar diseases, even in tough conditions.”

Traction fungicide’s dual actives work on-contact and systemically within the plant to provide effective broad-spectrum control of 19 turf diseases and algal scum. It has been shown to provide strong performance against major golf course diseases, including California-prone pressure such as dollar spot, leaf spot, snow mold, and large patch.

Traction fungicide is available in a convenient specially designed and university proven premix formula for foliar turfgrass diseases. It can also be applied across all golf course settings, including fairways, tees and greens.

“Traction is helping superintendents save time because it’s an efficacious, easy-to-use premix that can be applied during the summertime to any golf terrain,” said Fausey. “We’re pleased to extend this new disease management tool to California golf courses.”
