Syngenta announces updates to large patch prevention assurance programs

Wed, Jul 14 2021

Syngenta announced its GreenTrust large patch prevention assurance program is now available in California and includes new recommendations with the addition of Posterity XT fungicide in other regions. The Ascernity fungicide label has also been updated to increase the number of maximum annual applications from two to four.

“With the recent Ascernity registration in California, the expanded Ascernity label in all other states and additional research for enhanced recommendations, we are excited to provide a more robust disease control solution for superintendents,” said Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager for Syngenta. “We are encouraged by the positive results from superintendents about the performance of Ascernity and Posterity XT. These changes will provide additional control and flexibility to help protect courses from large patch and more.”

The updated large patch prevention assurance program recommends applications of Ascernity, Posterity XT or Headway fungicides in the fall when soil temperatures are consistently below 68 degrees. Then one application in the spring when turf growth resumes. Recommendations vary by geography. Superintendents who follow the prescribed program are guaranteed 90 percent large patch control on their treated turf. Download the large patch prevention assurance for full program details.
