Disease Control Inside Out

Mark Sandersonin Pests & Diseases

A fascinating new insight into turf diseases, and how they impact on plant health, will give greenkeepers, turf managers and agronomist the chance to make better agronomy decisions to minimise damage and protect playing surface quality more effectively.

Disease control inside out Fusarium
Presented for the first time at BTME 2015, revolutionary new high-tech microscopy and novel 3-D imagery - exclusively captured by the Syngenta R&D biokinetics crop imaging and sensing unit - has captured details of just how Microdochium (Fusarium) Patch germinates and penetrates into the leaf, and where the disease pathogen attacks cells.

Using these techniques Syngenta Technical Managers can explain how different fungicides work, and identify where the modes of action are most appropriate in tackling different stages of disease and under different conditions.

Looking at turf disease at such incredible detail and understanding the issues inside out means that greenkeepers can select the most appropriate option for any given situation.

Look out for your 3-D glasses and special BTME offers from Syngenta, or visit the BTME stand B52.

Disease Control Inside Out will also be presented by Syngenta Technical Services Manager, Marcela Munoz, as part of the BTME Continue To Learn seminar series on Tuesday 20 January at 4.00pm.

Also, visit the Syngenta stand to find out the winner of this year's Operation Pollinator Award, which recognises excellence in ecological habitat conservation and wildflower resource creation
