Using Appear II as part of an agronomic program enhances disease control and improves turf quality throughout the season. In this trial, the Appear II program had an average turf rating of 6.54 and the Signature™ XTRA Stressgard® program had an average of 6.06. Source: Dr. Lee Miller, University of Missouri, 2018. Phosphonate comparison study on creeping bentgrass greens. The only program variable was the inclusion of Appear II or Signature XTRA Stressgard. Data indicates turf quality scoring each month to show the progression of overall turf quality during a season-long agronomic program. Applications were made on 14-day intervals.

Researcher Perspectives

“This formulation of Appear II, in conjunction with Secure Action, was absolutely amazing for the disease pressure that we have. I don't say this often when I see plots like this, but this was one of the best looking plots on this particular putting green.”

-Jim Kerns, Ph.D., associate professor and extension specialist, N.C. State University
Raleigh, North Carolina

“Appear II fungicide is fantastic, especially when tank-mixed with Daconil Action or Secure Action. When you add Appear II to Daconil Action or Secure Action, it really improves disease control and turf quality. It had a fantastic, natural green color and maintained turf density throughout the season. It’s a really, really good product, and it showed an overall increase in turf quality compared to standard treatments and showed 99 percent disease control in my trials. If I was a superintendent, I would use Appear II plus Daconil Action every other week. It provides four different modes of action for disease control, so it should be about as broad spectrum as it’s going to get. It’s the best fungicide combination I’ve ever used.”

-Travis Teuton, Ph.D., research director, Southeastern Turfgrass Research Center
Anthony, Florida

“Appear II fungicide lasted longer than comparative products used in the trial. It showed significantly better turf quality and overall plant health. And when tank-mixed with products like Secure Action and Daconil Action, Appear II provided better turf quality than when the products were used alone. Based on my experience with Appear II, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to a customer. I think it’s a good product that will sell itself.”
