Broad-spectrum control of over 20 turfgrass diseases for up to 28 days
Systemic strobilurin fungicide that continues to rise to the top of the plant for long lasting control
Lighter-weight granules that spread over a wider area than traditional granules
Highly water soluable DG-Lite carrier disperses with a heavy dew or light watering, minimizing wash-away
Heritage G is a granular fungicide for use on turf and provides the same long-lasting broad-spectrum control of turfgrass diseases including brown patch, anthracnose and take-all patch, as do the wettable granule and liquid Heritage formulations. Heritage G is perfect for operations that want to provide top-notch disease control, without the attributes of a liquid fungicide or when weather conditions prevent spraying. By using a highly water-soluble carrier, Heritage G is able to provide the effectiveness of a sprayable with the convenience of a granular.
Lighter-weight granules spread over a wider area than traditional granules. Available in 30-pound bags.
Highly soluble carrier allows for the efficacy of a sprayable formulation.
Will typically disperse with a heavy dew or light watering (approximately 2–3 sprinkler revolutions).
Broad-spectrum control up to 28 days.
Heritage G is a potent inhibitor of spore germination and mycelial growth. It should be applied in the early stages of disease development to achieve optimal results.
Syngenta introduced Heritage G, a low-risk fungicide that is not only effective, but is readily compatible with numerous other turf products, is conveniently packaged, and is easy to use. Through proper handling and application, Heritage G can help simplify any disease management program by saving the turf professional both time and labor.
Heritage G enters the turfgrass plant in several ways. It may be absorbed through the leaf blade or stem and may be taken up by the root system. Once inside the plant, it is translocated upward (acropetally) and is then uniformly distributed. As soon as Heritage G is applied on the leaf surface, it protects turfgrass from infection. Once Heritage G gets inside the plant, it works to stop the infection and prevents it from spreading. Application rates and intervals of Heritage G vary depending on target diseases.
Fields of Use: For use on golf courses, residential lawns and sports turf.
The residual activity of Heritage G allows for extended application intervals up to 28 days, depending on desease presure. The extended intervals allow for fewer applications which significantly decrease the time and labor required for managing turf deseases.
I was cautious when I first saw this product, but a neighbor of mine recommended it to me. I wasn't too keen on the high price tag for only 30lbs. I bought it anyway, applied it and waited. In about a week and a half I started to see a difference in my lawn. In two weeks the brown spots or dollar spots (don't know which fungus I had) had almost vanished with a few visible spots here and there (I noticed the spots others might not be able to see). The only drawback is the price. If it wasn't so expensive I would have purchased two bags for my front and backyard. I guess I will try the cheaper Bayer brand fungicide to see if has the same affect. Great shipping as well, got it 3 or 4 days after ordering.
I've had lawn disease problems for a couple years now (since i've reseeded the lawn and actually had a nice lush turf), killing of large patches of the lawn. From what i can tell now after a lot of research, it's leaf spot, gray leaf spot, fusarium blight or similar. This spring (before all the research), i tried to fend it off by using the Bayer fungicide from Home Depot, applying on May 1 and June 1. In June, we had 10"+ of rain, mostly in the evening or at night here in the DC area, and i saw the same areas start to brown up again, and it was spreading fast. So i did a ton of research, and after finding the NC State turf files site and their ratings of fungicides (http://www.turffiles.ncsu.edu/Diseases/Default.aspx#IS004047), i bought a bag of this Heritage. I also discovered that the Bayer fungicide's active ingredient, propiconazole, is not very highly rated in its effectiveness compared to azoxystrobin (Heritage), or thiophanate-methyl (which is in products like Cleary's 3336, and the Scott's fungicide, although a lower dosage). I applied it with my Scott's deluxe edge guard rotary spreader set at 4. By the time i applied it, it had been about 10-14 days and the fungus had spread quickly. I also had a bag of the Scott's fungicide and spread that a couple days later. From my research, using fungicides from different chemical classes is helpful to not only kill the fungus, but to prevent resistance build up. Well, a week later, the lawn started coming back, and after 10 days now, it is on its way to recovery! I honestly didn't have high hopes, especially since we've been getting more evening rain the last week, but the treatment has worked. I plan on putting another treatment, this time of the 3336 after 14 days to hopefully finish the job. a couple pieces of advice to people: do your research! you have to make sure you're not overusing the same class of fungicide or the fungus will build resistance. For example, the Heritage should not be used more than 2 TIMES a season, at most 3 if you're rotating it with other classes. anyway, i plan on using this in a preventative dosage next year along with the 3336 to hopefully stave off the fungus from starting in the first place. Yes, it's expensive, but compared to the time it and effort it takes to reseed your lawn, it's well worth it!
Had 4 yr old sod with summer patch covering almost the entire yard in Michigan. Applied using Scotts speedygreen broadcast spreader at 3 3/4 setting and within weeks almost all of the brown rings were gone and the grass will filling back in those areas. Reapplied to those areas where it was still a little brown and those came back as well. Only downside is the cost, but I guess that it's better than a couple thousand to replace the sod.
In Arizona having Bermuda tifway 419, it's always got some type of fungus going on. This is also because of our fantastic soil that takes a lot of water to get wet, yet stays wet longer, but drys concrete on the top layer. Add the queen of thatcher maker of grass to that and you got 1-2-3 types of fungus happening. Heritage G nailed it. Took about a week to see the difference. But be WARNED "Do Not Use" it 2x in a row. Rotate to Subdue and the. 3 hit it with Compass or other. Fungus strains mutate & will become resistant to that chemical. I had used Spectracide for 2 years and now it will not even touch any fungus I get. So I learned the hard way. But Heritage being broad spectrum & not knowing what you got is what I would hit it with the first go around DEFINITELY!
I had lawn disease for several years in a row that was called "red thread" which was scattered over 50% of my lawn along with "brown patch" over another 20%. Both diseases were verified in the samples that were tested my local state (CT) agricultural experiment station. They recommeded a fungicide, less irrigation, thatching, and replanting in the early fall. I would do that and my lawn would recover and look great again by late fall.
Unfortunately, this happened every year.
Early this year, I bought 3 bags of Heritage G and diligently followed the instructions to the letter. Rather than do the entire lawn I only did the areas that went bad each year. (no problems under trees or other shaded areas so those were skipped.)
By mid summer, both diseases were back and I was greatly disappointed. Even applying it more than the recommended amount wouldn's stop it and now I'm thatching and planting again. This product did nothing for me.
Are there any restrictions or concerns when using this product in a residential setting (e.g., dogs, runoff)?
We strongly recommend that you fully read the Heritage G product label to learn all precautions and warnings. Heritage G does have the standard pesticide warnings regarding pets, people, and runoff. All pets and people should be out of the area where the application is being applied and they can return as soon as the area is dry. Do not allow runoff or over spray to get into any body of water or water supply as it can impact aquatic invertebrates.
Can Heritage G be used to cure a fungicide after it is already well developed and has killed the grass?
A large area of my St. Augustine lawn (approximately 40 square feet died a couple of years ago. I tried to re-sod the area last year and it died yet again returning the area to dirt. It has been suggested that I need to treat for fungus in the soil and a local gardener had suggested Heritage. Information I've read on the product states it must be used as a preventative when diseases are emerging. Can it be used to cure fungus in the soil without grass present? Is there a better product or method to cure my soil?
Fungicides usually work best when applied as the disease is just beginning or as a preventative. We are not sure if Heritage will work for the treatment you described. We recommend calling the manufacturer as they are the experts on their product. You can reach Syngenta by calling 866-796-4368.
I have the Heritage G. The label says nothing about whether to water the product in or not?
Irrigation will depend on what and where you are treating. Although, we have recently started carrying fungicides due to popular request from our customers, grass and lawns are not our area of expertise. Therefore, we are not giving advice yet on fungicides as we are not the experts. We recommend calling the manufacturer Sygenta. They can be reached at 1-866-796-4368.
