26GT Labeled for Anthracnose Suppression
Bayer Environmental Science recently received supplemental registration from the EPA adding the suppression of anthracnose to the 26GT fungicide label.
The supplemental label states the product may be applied as a foliar spray at the rate of 4 to 8 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. Used as a preventive treatment every 14 days, 26GT will provide suppression during periods of anthracnose pressure.
A foliar blight that occurs under periods of heat and water stress, anthracnose is most severe on annual bluegrass (Poa annua), but it also occurs on Kentucky bluegrass, creeping bentgrass and other cool-season grasses. Turfgrass affected with anthracnose first turns yellow and then dies. Individual leaf blades fade from dark green to light green and then to yellow.
26GT fungicide is a broad-spectrum product registered for control control of brown patch, dollar spot and a variety of other destructive turfgrass diseases.
The supplemental 26GT label recommends mixing the product with Compass or Chipco Signature fungicides for full anthracnose control.
