Emerald Fungicide is a systemic anilide fungicide for effective management of damaging dollar spot and bent grass dead spot in turf grass grown on golf courses. It features 70 percent water dispersible granules which obstruct respiration within the fungal cell. It provides fast cessation of mycelia growth and hinders further development of fungal growth. Maximum disease control will be attained when the solution is administered in a regularly scheduled preventive spray program and is utilized in a rotation program with other reliable fungicides. Because of its high specific activity, it will establish good residual action against target fungi. It may be applied as a solo foliar spray or in tank mixes with other registered turf grass fungicides.
Provides unprecedented dollar spot control in virtually every major turf species, and in every region, of the United States.
Controls dollar spot for up to 28 days with a single application.
Delivers better dollar spot control in bentgrass than other fungicides.
Gives superintedents a true resistance-management tool.
Utilizes low use rates and provides strong residual control.
Dollar Spot Has Never Seen Anything Like It
And neither have you. Emerald is a different class of fungicide chemistry for dollar spot control. The active ingredient, boscalid, attacks pathogens that cause dollar spot in a unique and highly effective way.
Emerald inhibits a system called complex II in the mitochondria of fungal cells. By depriving the fungal cells of energy, Emerald disrupts fungal growth and development, halting disease development. Both the mode and site of action of Emerald differ from any other fungicides used to control dollar spot, which is why Emerald can effectively control pathogens that have developed resistance to other fungicides. In other words, it works.
Where To Use Emerald
Research shows that Emerald provides excellent dollar spot control in every region of the country, including yours. And Emerald controls dollar spot in most major turf species, including:
How To Apply Emerald
Because it is a different class of fungicide chemistry for dollar spot control, Emerald can serve as a valuable resistance-management tool. As with all fungicide chemistries, however, Emerald should be applied as part of a rotation. For additional disease control, Emerald can be tank-mixed with other fungicides.
To achieve optimal results, make no more than two successive applications of Emerald. For specific application rates and instructions, consult the product label.
When is the the best time of the year for an application of Emerald Fungicide?
Emerald Fungicide is most effective when applied preventively. It should be applied prior to any sign of disease. It should be applied in rotation with other products and is also safe for tank mixing. For best results, two applications may be necessary. Please refer and follow the product label for more specific usage instructions. For specific timing of application, please consult with your local Master Gardener.
