Bayer announces lower use rate for Reserve fungicide
Reserve fungicide is now registered at a 7 to 14 day interval with a lower use rate, announced Environmental Science, a business unit of Bayer CropScience LP. Reserve, with StressGard™ Formulation Technology, protects turf against many major diseases and improves plant health, resulting in improved turf density and quality.
“The new Reserve lower use rates allow golf course superintendents to adjust their rates to better fit their spray schedule and needs. These lower Reserve rates, 1.6 to 2.8 oz. per 1000 sq.ft., reduce the amount of chlorothalonil used per application, extending the number of chlorothalonil applications that can be made in a season,” said Jimmy Johnson, fungicide product manager, Bayer CropScience, Environmental Science division. “Superintendents will also appreciate the superior disease control that Reserve is known for against tough diseases such as anthracnose and Waitea.”
According to research trials across the country, Reserve controlled disease and improved turf density and quality better than other Dimethylation Inhibitor (DMI) fungicides and DMI combinations, especially during hot summer and cold winter periods that cause turf stress. Reserve can also be used with confidence as part of a Primo program on Poa annua and creeping bentgrass greens.
The active ingredients triticonazole and chlorothalonil, along with Bayer’s StressGard™ formulation technology, allow superintendents to manage applications with up to 40 percent less product per acre. Applications can be made to tees, greens, fairways and roughs. Reserve is available as a suspension concentrate formulation in 2.5-gallon container.
