Posterity provides up to 28 days of control and is an active succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) against dollar spot in the turf market.
“Posterity has been used extensively by superintendents in other parts of the country since originally launching in 2018,” said Dean Mosdell, Ph.D., technical services manager for turf at Syngenta. “We have continued to see Posterity provide excellent disease control, and it has become a key part of agronomic programs to control spring dead spot, so we are excited to have it available in California.”
Preventive applications of Posterity are recommended beginning in the spring, prior to the expression of fairy rings, as soil temperature exceed 60 degrees F. Posterity also features curative properties and can be used for extended preventive applications for continued protection. Fall applications for spring dead spot should begin as soil temperatures hit 70 degrees F followed by a repeat application 28 days later.
For resistance management and broader-spectrum control, Syngenta also offers agronomic programs that strategically rotate Posterity with other trusted products to properly condition turf so it will perform at its best during the season and recover quickly from stress.
“As superintendents in California prepare for the season ahead, they now have access to an innovative fungicide that can help keep their turf free of dollar spot and spring dead spot,” said Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager at Syngenta. “With the registration of Posterity, we are excited to provide a solution that offers the exceptional disease control they need.”
