Product Overview

Pillar G Intrinsic Granular Fungicide is a combination of Insignia fungicide and Trinity fungicide active ingredients in a granular form. The combination of these two very effective active ingredients will deliver the best disease control on many of the diseases and problems that challenge turf management. Several diseases include anthracnose, dollar spot, leaf spots, patch diseases (large patch, brown patch, summer patch, take-all patch), and snow molds.

Pillar G Intrinsic Granular Fungicide also provides benefits in plant health. Turf that is treated with Pillar G Intrinsic fungicide improves the health of the plant in its stress management, with drought, moisture, plus its temperature limits. Also, treated turf has shown enlarged root mass and length. Pillar G is formed on a granule of clay which provides excellent spreading features due to its thickness and uniform size. This makes the active ingredient move quickly off of the granule after watering or when raining so that it can protect the turfgrass shortly after the application.

Details

While spray applications of fungicides are most common to control disease, many turf managers find that granular products can be very convenient to use. Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide can allow applications to take place

  1. When conditions do not allow for spray equipment on a turf area (wet, snow cover)
  2. When air temperatures do not allow for spraying due to the potential to freeze spray lines
  3. When only a spot treatment is required, saving on manpower and equipment resources
  4. For applicators that prefer granular applications.

General Information

  • Better performance on dollar spot than many other products including Heritage G fungicide, Compass fungicide and Disarm fungicide
  • Dense particle with excellent spreading characteristics
  • Controls more diseases than competing granular fungicides
  • Labeled for use on most turfgrasses for both lawns and golf
  • Provides healthier and higher quality turf, especially during stressful periods.

Diseases Controlled and How to Treat Them

Disease Application Interval (days) Comments
Anthracnose 14 to 28 Use preventively. Begin applications when conditions are favorable for fungal infection, prior to disease symptom development.
Bentgrass dead spot 28 Use preventively. Begin applications when conditions are favorable for fungal infection, prior to disease symptom development.
Bermudagrass decline 28 Aids in control of bermudagrass decline when integrated with appropriate cultural practices such as raised mowing height, proper fertilization, and core aeration. Make 1 application in the spring following greenup and a second application in the fall when air temperatures remain above 80 degrees F and humidity is 75% or higher.
Brown patch 14 to 28 Apply when conditions are favorable for disease development.
Brown ring patch 14 to 28 Apply when early yellow ring development is symptomatic. Provide short irrigation cycle directly following treatment to move fungicide through thatch.

    By Zachary on 09/29/2017

    Good on St. Augustine Floratram grass

    By Alan on 06/15/2018

    This fungicide is really working great. With all the rain the past month, the grass is growing like crazy. I added some manganese and magnesium to the regular lawn fertilizer application and it has never been more dense and green. If not for the Pillar G Intrinsic Fungicide, it would have big spots of dying grass. It did every year before this year.

Q
Can this be used in rotation with Heritage G? Is it in a different classification?

Would like to find a different fungicide in a different classification than Heritage G that also is applied by granular.

A

Pillar G and Heritage both have a Group 11 classified ingredient so while generally they would not be the best products to rotate to protect against fungicide and plant resistance, Pillar has an added active ingredient that allows you to do so. A better option would be a Group 1 fungicide like Clearys 3336G Fungicide
