Golf course superintendents in New York now have access to an innovative fungicide specifically formulated to maximize foliar disease control. Environmental Science, a business unit of Bayer Crop Science, announced that Exteris Stressgard is now registered in New York state.
Exteris Stressgard, which combines fluopyram and trifloxystrobin, is the only succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor of its kind, offering both preventative and curative disease control
as well as formulation enhancements through a combination of Leaf-Cote Technology and Stressgard Formulation Technology.
With two active ingredients, Exteris Stressgard creates a dynamic solution with the molecular precision and agility to provide broad-spectrum control of damaging foliar diseases like dollar spot, brown patch and leaf spot while also offering additional benefits, such as fast knock-down of damaging mycelium and dew mitigation under certain conditions. With Leaf-Cote Technology, Exteris Stressgard offers improved product retention on the leaf surface, sticking where it’s needed most – at the site of fungal activity. Additionally, thanks to Stressgard Formulation Technology, it also delivers stress mitigation and improved turf quality.
“Until the launch of Exteris Stressgard, superintendents were looking for a reliable fungicide that stays where it’s needed and has the versatility to offer consistent results time and again,” said Paul Giordano, Bayer Green Solutions Team Specialist. “Superintendents across the country have seen exceptional results after integrating Exteris Stressgard into their rotations, and we look forward to bringing similar results to superintendents in New York.”
