SiteOne Landscape Supply has introduced a pair of LESCO fungicides: LESCO Drax and LESCO Stronghold Fungicide SC.
LESCO Drax is a preventative contact fungicide for golf course use that provides control of multiple diseases, including dollar spot, brown patch and leaf spot.
Containing 4.17 pounds of active ingredient fluazinam per gallon, the fungicide’s multi-site contact active ingredient includes no known resistance and can be applied up to 12 times per year. LESCO Drax is a broad-spectrum fungicide for use to control diseases on golf courses only.
“The innovation behind the new LESCO Drax makes this the only turf fungicide in FRAC Group 29,” said Brian Rowan, vice president category management at SiteOne. Drax’s unique class of chemistry and multi-site mode of action translates to minimal risk of fungicide resistance. When partnered with chlorothanlonil (LESCO Manicure)-based fungicides, it provides season-long contact protection for optimal efficiency.”
LESCO Stronghold Fungicide SC targets Pythium disease as well as Phytophthora and downy mildew diseases on ornamental plants in landscapes. The active ingredient, cyazofamid, features a novel mode of action that puts it in FRAC Group 21, and makes it a candidate for resistance management programs.
LESCO Stronghold Fungicide is labeled for use in the following areas:
- Golf courses
- Professionally managed sports fields
- Sod and seed farms
- Residential laws
- Commercial turf areas
