TURFGRASS AND DICHONDRA DISEASE CONTROL
1. USE BANNER MAXX II IN A PREVENTATIVE DISEASE CONTROL PROGRAM.
2. Apply in sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage.

4. For control of foliar diseases, allow sprayed area to completely dry before irrigation.
5. For control of soil-borne diseases, Banner MAXX II can be watered in after application.
6. Under conditions optimum for high disease pressure, use the higher rate and the shorter interval.
7. For optimum turf quality and disease control, use Banner MAXX II in conjunction with turf management practices that promote good plant health and optimum disease control.
8. Evaluate spray additives prior to use. Label directions are based on data obtained with no additives.
9. Before use of any fungicide, proper diagnosis of the organism causing the disease is important. Use of diagnostic kits or other means of identification of the disease organism is essential to determine the best control measures.
10. Do not apply more than 16 fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft./calendar year.
IMPORTANT: Bermudagrass can be sensitive to Banner MAXX II. Do not exceed 4 fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft. every 30 days on any variety of bermudagrass. In FL, do not apply Banner MAXX II to bermudagrass golf course greens when temperatures exceed 90°F.

Establishment of Cool Season Turfgrass
Banner MAXX II provides control of many diseases of turf, and its primary use is as a fungicide for use against the diseases listed on the label. As an additional benefit, Banner MAXX II will improve the rate of establishment when it is applied to cool season grass seedlings or sod.
New Seedlings: Apply 1 fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft. at the 2 to 3-leaf stage of growth for faster root development and top growth.
Sod: Apply 1 fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft. 2-6 weeks before cutting for increased sod knitting and faster establishment after laying.
