New Dual-FRAC Fungicide to Launch
First seen at GIS, Nufarm’s new fungicide will help golf course managers save time and gain traction against 19 challenging turf diseases and algal scum. Its unique FRAC combination supports a strong disease resistance management program. It works on contact and systemically within the plant to deliver effective performance on every golf course area including fairways, greens, aprons and tees.
3336® F is a broad-spectrum fungicide with preventive and curative properties. With a systemic mode of action, 3336 F provides excellent control of a wide range of turf diseases such as anthracnose, brown spot, summer patch and dollar spot. Its flowable formulation provides ease-of-use and it’s tank-mix compatible with most common pesticides.
Affirm™ WDG Fungicide
Affirm™ WDG is concentrated water-dispersible granule fungicide that delivers excellent control of turf and ornamental diseases. With both foliar and translaminar activity, Affirm protects against anthracnose, patch diseases, snow molds and many others. Plus, it offers added benefits of low use rates, flexible tank-mix compatibility, and convenient packaging.
Anuew plant growth regulator manages growth and improves quality and appearance of warm- and cool-season turfgrasses with an advanced mode of action. It reduces both mowing frequency and the amount of clippings while improving turf quality. Anuew can be applied to all managed turf areas, including golf greens, tees, fairways and rough, residential and commercial lawns, sod farms, and sports fields.
Millennium™ Ultra 2 Herbicide
Millennium Ultra 2 premium post-emergence herbicide provides excellent control of the most challenging broadleaf weeds including clover, speedwell, ground ivy and Virginia buttonweed. It translocates to the roots so even deep-rooted perennials such as thistle, goldenrod and nettle are controlled. The unique formulation of 2,4-D, clopyralid and dicamba is one of the most effective formulations for broad-spectrum weed control available today.
Pinpoint is formulated with a new fungicide active ingredient designed for outstanding dollar spot control. Pinpoint provides superintendents and other golf course management professionals with an excellent fungicide program rotation partner to help manage and mitigate dollar spot resistance from SDHI, DMI, benzimidazole and dicarboximide fungicides.
