Syngenta takes aim at turf control

New Appear II fungicide designed for improved turf color and disease control.

May 15, 2019

Syngenta has launched Appear II fungicide to provide superintendents with control of diseases like Pythium and anthracnose, while improving stress tolerance and turf quality in both warm- and cool-season grasses.

Appear II is designed for inside-out turf protection, with the active ingredient immediately available and quickly absorbed by the plant in its most active form, and an increased pigment load provide a deep, natural green color and enhanced turf quality.

“We developed Appear II with superintendents and golfers in mind,” said Steve Dorer, fungicide brand manager for turf at Syngenta. “Not only does it deliver the proven disease control superintendents have come to expect from our fungicides, it also offers improved mixability and resuspension that makes it easier to use and provides a more natural green color golfers can see.”

Internal research has showed that Appear II consistently enhances the performance of fungicide programs for disease control and stress tolerance. And when tank mixed with other fungicides, it includes additional diseases, such as bermudagrass leaf spot, bermudagrass decline/take-all root rot and pink snow mold.

“By incorporating Appear II into agronomic programs, superintendents can expect more than just increased disease control,” said Lane Tredway, Syngenta’s technical services manager for turf. “It also helps quicken spring green-up and really improves aesthetics and playability all season.”
