BASF Receives New York Registration Of Insignia Fungicide

BASF recently announced that its Insignia fungicide has received registration from the New York Environmental Protection Agency (NY/EPA). Insignia provides golf course superintendents, residential lawn care operators, sports field and commercial turf managers broad-spectrum, extended control of more than 15 major turfgrass diseases as well as suppression of dollar spot.

The active ingredient in Insignia fungicide is pyraclostrobin, a member of the strobilurin chemistry class, which inhibits mitochondrial respiration. Insignia suppresses dollar spot. In addition, Insignia has shown residual control on other turf diseases

Insignia is a translaminar penetrant fungicide recommended to control the following turfgrass pathogens: anthracnose, bentgrass dead spot, brown patch, dollar spot (suppression only), fairy ring, Fusarium patch, gray leaf spot, gray snow mold, leaf spot, melting out, pink patch, pink snow mold, powdery mildew, Pythium blight, rapid blight, red thread, rust, summer patch and take-all patch.

For maximum efficiency, Insignia fungicide should be applied preventively but also may be used curatively for some diseases. Insignia may be applied as a single treatment or in tank mixes with other registered turfgrass fungicides. To improve control of certain diseases, Insignia may be tank mixed with other effective (non-strobilurin) fungicides.
