TURF - FOR USE WITH SOIL INJECTION APPLICATIONS

General Information

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Heritage TL is a broad-spectrum, systemic fungicide with preventative and curative properties used to control listed turf diseases. Heritage TL may be applied as a foliar spray in alternating spray programs or in tank mixes with other registered, turf protection products. All applications should be made according to the use directions that follow.

Heritage TL is a member of Syngenta’s Plant Performance product line that can improve plant vigor and quality. The additional benefits are due to positive effects on plant physiology, which can vary according to plant species and growing environment.

USE PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS

Adjuvants: When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, the use of an adjuvant that meets the standards of the Chemical Producers and Distributors Association (CPDA) adjuvant certification program is recommended.

DO NOT graze or feed clippings from treated turf areas to animals.

DO NOT apply Heritage TL to turf by air.

Heritage TL has demonstrated some phytotoxic effects when mixed with products that are formulated as EC’s.

These effects are enhanced if applications are made under cool, cloudy conditions and these conditions remain for several days following application. In addition, adjuvants that contain some form of silicone have also contributed to phytotoxicity.

SPRAYING/MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Heritage TL may be applied with all types of spray equipment commonly used for making ground applications.

DO NOT apply Heritage TL through any type of ultra low volume (ULV) spray system (less than 3 gal/A).

DO NOT apply Heritage TL by air.

Proper adjustments and calibration of spraying equipment to give good canopy penetration and coverage is essential for good disease control. The higher rates in the rate range and/or shorter spray intervals may be required under conditions of heavy infection pressure, highly susceptible varieties, or when disease conducive environmental conditions exist.

For ground applications, apply Heritage TL in sufficient water volume for adequate coverage.

PHYTOTOXICITY

Heritage TL is extremely phytotoxic to certain apple varieties.

AVOID SPRAY DRIFT. Extreme care must be used to prevent injury to apple trees (and apple fruit).

DO NOT spray Heritage TL where spray drift may reach apple trees.

DO NOT use spray equipment that has been previously used to apply Heritage TL to spray apple trees. Even trace amounts can cause unacceptable phytotoxicity.

Heritage TL has demonstrated some phytotoxic effects when mixed with products that are formulated as EC’s.

These effects are enhanced if applications are made under cool, cloudy conditions and these conditions remain forseveral days following application. In addition, adjuvants that contain some form of silicone have also contributed to phytotoxicity.

TURF USE DIRECTIONS

Heritage TL controls listed pathogens that cause foliar, stem, and root diseases, including leaf and stem blights, leaf spots, patch diseases, mildews, anthracnose, fairy rings, molds, and rusts of turfgrass plants. Heritage TL may be used to control certain diseases on turf in golf courses, lawns and landscape areas around residential, institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreational areas, athletic fields and sod farms.

Integrated Pest (Disease) Management (IPM): Sound turf management resulting in healthy, vigorous turf is the foundation of a good IPM program. Cultural practices such as proper choice of turf variety, nutrient management, proper cutting height, thatch management, and proper watering, drainage, and moisture stress management should be integrated with the use of fungicides to increase turf vigor and reduce the susceptibility to disease. Immunoassay detection kits and extension service diagnostic services can assist in the early and accurate identification of causal organisms and corresponding selection of the proper fungicide when required.

Resistance Management: Some turf disease pathogens are known to have developed resistance to products used repeatedly for their control. Heritage TL should be applied at full use rates in a tank mix or alternation program with other registered fungicides that have a different mode of action and to which pathogen resistance has not developed. Since Heritage TL is a strobilurin fungicide, avoid alternation with other strobilurins, such as kresoximmethyl and trifloxystrobin.

DO NOT apply more than two sequential Heritage TL applications for Gray Leaf Spot and Pythium disease control.

For all other diseases when Gray Leaf Spot and Pythium diseases are not present, do not apply more than three sequential applications of Heritage TL.

Application Directions: Heritage TL should be applied prior to disease development. Mix Heritage TL with the required amount of water and apply as a dilute spray application in 2-4 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft (87-174 gal/A). Repeat applications at specified intervals for as long as required. For spot treatments, use 1 fl oz Heritage TL per 1 to 2 gallons of water.

DO NOT apply more than 6.25 gallons product per acre per year (18.5 fl oz product per 1,000 sq ft per year).

Applications may be made by ground only.

For use in the establishment of turfgrass from seed or in overseeding of dormant turfgrass:

Heritage TL may be used for control of certain turfgrass diseases associated with turfgrass establishment from seed.

Heritage TL may also be used during overseeding of dormant turfgrass.

Heritage TL may be safely applied before or after seeding or at seedling germination and emergence to ryegrass, bentgrass, bluegrass, and fescue turfgrass types. Optimum application timing is during seeding. See Application Directions section.

Rate Ranges: Use the shorter specified application interval and/or use the higher specified rate when prolonged favorable disease conditions exist.

Dollar Spot: Heritage TL does not control Dollar Spot. During periods of Dollar Spot pressure, always mix Heritage TL with Daconil or another Dollar Spot control fungicide. Heritage TL is compatible in tank mixes with many other fungicides that control Dollar Spot.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

TURF

For use with soil injection applications:

Heritage TL may be applied through a liquid fungicide injector for the control of ectrotrophic root diseases such as summer patch and take-all patch. Use Heritage TL only in liquid injection equipment specifically designated for pesticide use.

Apply Heritage TL at 1-2 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft. Spray carrier volume should fall within 30-150 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft. Injection hole spacing of 1 inch by 1 inch is recommended for optimum control. Injection depth should be no greater than 2 inches. One inch depth is recommended for optimum results. Application timing should follow disease control strategies used for normal broadcast spray programs.
