TURF: GOLF COURSE GREENS - DICHONDRA LEAF SPOT (CA ONLY) - POST-DISEASE

General Information

USE INFORMATION

Daconil Weather Stik is an excellent disease control agent when used according to label directions for control of a broad spectrum of plant diseases. Daconil Weather Stik is recommended for use in programs that are compatible with the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which include the use of disease resistant crop varieties, cultural practices, pest scouting and disease forecasting systems, which reduce unnecessary applications of pesticides.

Daconil Weather Stik is effective for strategic use in programs that attempt to minimize disease resistance to fungicides. Some other fungicides that are at risk from disease resistance exhibit a single-site mode of fungicidal action. Daconil Weather Stik, with a multi-site mode of action, may be used to delay or prevent the development of resistance to single-site fungicides. Consult your Federal or State Cooperative Extension Service representatives for guidance on the proper use of Daconil Weather Stik in programs which seek to minimize the occurrence of disease resistance to other fungicides.
