New Syngenta fungicide offers protection on fairways.

The EPA has granted registration to new Contend fungicide from Syngenta for control of pink and gray snow mold on golf courses. Contend delivers unique, multi-targeted control for 120-plus days by combining four active ingredients, including Solatenol, a new active ingredient for the turf industry. Click here for a list of states where Contend is available.

“We expect that the innovative chemistry of Contend will bring snow mold protection for fairways to a new level,” says Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager at Syngenta. “With four a.i.s, including a new active ingredient to the turf market and three modes of action, Contend will be an important tool for superintendents to use on fairways, while Instrata fungicide will continue to be our lead snow mold control recommendation for greens.”
