Syngenta’s Insight Into Turf Diseases

Disease-control-inside-out-FusariumHarrogate, England: A fascinating new insight into turf diseases, and how they impact on plant health, will give greenkeepers, turf managers and agronomists the chance to make better agronomy decisions to minimise damage and protect playing surface quality more effectively.
The revolutionary new high-tech microscopy and novel 3-D imagery – exclusively captured by the Syngenta R&D biokinetics crop imaging and sensing unit – will be presented for the first time at this month’s BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME).
It has succeeded in capturing details of just how Microdochium (Fusarium) Patch germinates and penetrates into the leaf, and where the disease pathogen attacks cells.
Using these techniques Syngenta Technical Managers can explain how different fungicides work, and identify where the modes of action are most appropriate in tackling different stages of disease and under different conditions.
Looking at turf disease at such incredible detail and understanding the issues inside out means that greenkeepers can select the most appropriate option for any given situation.
Syngenta is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
