Valent Professional Products announced that Stellar Fungicide has been registered by the Environmental Protection Agency for use on golf course turf and sod farms in California.

A unique, synergistic fungicide premix that offers excellent control of Pythium, Stellar is a combination of the new chemistry of fluopicolide and the proven power of propamocarb, which increases the effectiveness of each component for maximum Pythium control. This registration also marks the first time propamocarb has been approved for use in California.

Because of its new chemistry class and dual modes of action, Stellar provides superintendents and LCOs with an ideal new resistance management tool.

Stellar is very effective on Pythium, providing highly consistent preventive and early curative control,” said Todd Mayhew, regional field development manager for Valent. “As a new tool for resistance management and with its novel mode of action, Stellar provides an excellent new option for Pythium control in California.”
