Xzemplar fungicide and Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration in 2014 in time for the 2014 season.
“We’re constantly working to develop new tools to help turfgrass professionals and superintendents effectively manage their turf,” said Nick Tresslar marketing manager at BASF Turf and Ornamental Solutions. “We had a great introductory season with Xzemplar fungicide and Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide, and are excited to continue providing effective solutions in the turf market.”
In addition to protection against diseases, including dollar spot, brown patch, summer patch and fairy ring, turf professionals who applied Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide saw plant health benefits, which resulted in greener, stronger, healthier turfgrass. Two golf course superintendents report on their results using Lexicon Intrinsic for first time.

Gresham has battled dollar spot on his acres for years. “We’ve had resistant dollar spot on our greens that never goes away,” he says. “Within a week after spraying Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide, the dollar spot was gone. It’s been a silver bullet for us.”

“We’ve seen Plant Health benefits, including increased root mass and shorter recovery time from the greens following aerification after using Lexicon Intrinsic brand fungicide. It provides a strong foundation for our course.”
