BTME will see the national launch of an exceptional new multi-active turf fungicide for the 2009 from Syngenta. The first Syngenta turf fungicide to harnesses the powerful multi-active combination of three ingredients, Instrata can deliver a new level of disease control and convenience for turf managers.

NEW FOR 2009

  • Fludioxonil
  • Propiconazole
  • Chlorothalonil

Combining the strengths of selected well proven and highly effective turf fungicides can enhance the spectrum of diseases controlled and give greater reliability in a wider range of conditions, according to Syngenta Turf Manager, Simon Elsworth.

"For busy turf managers multi-active fungicides are more convenient and give greater confidence in achieving best possible results every time," he added. "Syngenta now has an unrivalled range of turf fungicide active ingredients to choose from, along with the formulation expertise to create outstanding multi-active combinations."

New for 2009, Instrata is an exciting new high-performance multi-active turf fungicide, including the long-lasting residual control of fludioxonil - the first new contact active for turf for over 20 years - along with propiconazole and chlorothalonil.

Bringing together three actives in one turf fungicide gives genuine systemic and contact action, tackling a broad-spectrum of turf diseases at every stage of the life-cycle.

Instrata protection from disease on the leaf, in the thatch and at the soil surface, gives outstanding efficacy and makes it especially useful in high disease pressure situations at any time of the year.

Independent UK trials have proven Instrata can be up to 45% more effective and more persistent in the control of Fusarium Patch, compared to iprodione or myclobutanil. The result has been consistently better turf quality up to six weeks after application. Better Anthracnose control with Instrata improved over winter turf quality by up to 20%, compared to iprodione.

The unique three-way mode of action of Instrata gives powerful protection, plus essential curative and eradicant activity if disease symptoms have already broken out. Furthermore, including two multi-site contact active ingredients has significantly reduced the risk of fungicide resistance developing.

Simon Elsworth adds that multi-active combination fungicides are faster and more convenient to use, compared to tank mixing individual products. The expertly formulated Syngenta multi-active Instrata delivers exceptional levels of disease control at all times of the year. By combining the ai's in one pre-formulated product it can also reduce the number of containers for storage, rinsing and disposal.

"Applying Instrata turf managers can achieve convenient and cost-effective disease control, with added confidence in results for quality turf," he added.
