Ference is part of season long control of ABW as part of the Syngenta Optimum Control Strategy. Ference can be applied to all turfgrass areas on the golf course, including tee-box areas, roughs, fairways, greens and collars.
Secure features the active ingredient fluazinam, which disrupts energy production at multiple metabolic sites within the fungal cell, resulting in a low risk of resistance development. Secure is the only registered fungicide for turf in the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) group 29.
