Daconil Action fungicide is a new fungicide containing the most utilized active ingredient in turf: chlorothalonil, plus a “Turf Protein Booster” enhancing active ingredient Acibenzolar-S-methyl
Contains: Chlorothalonil (tetrachloroisophthalonitrile) 53.94%
Acibenzolar-S-methyl - 0.11%
Controls or Partially Controls:
- Dollar Spot
- Leaf Spot
- Brown Blight
- Brown Patch
- Grey Leaf Spot
- Red Thread
- Copper Spot
- Stem Rust
- Grey snow Mold
- And Others
Broad spectrum contact fungicide which controls Dollar Spot, Leaf Spot and Brown Patch, Red Thread and Helminthosporium. Also effective on ornamentals for Blackspot, Botrytis, Mildew and Mold.
Unlike traditional methods of disease control, this active ingredient is not a fungicide as it has no direct effect against pathogenic fungi and bacteria. Instead, it acts much like a vaccination. When applied, Acibenzolar-S-methyl triggers the natural defense response, or the Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR), of the turfgrass by activating production of pathogenesis-related proteins (PR proteins). The PR protein boost awakens the turf’s resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses like drought. In addition, this internal response within the plant enhances its own defense system against certain fungal and bacterial disease attacks. Thus, Acibenzolar-S-methyl bridges the gap between genetic resistance and conventional disease control by activating the plant’s own natural defenses.
Apply 1~3.5oz/1~3gallons of water/1,000 sq ft as pre-disease control or 4~11.3oz/1~3gallons of water/1,000 sq ft as post-disease control with 14days interval.
