  • Holds strong even under high pressure
  • Binds strongly to complex II enzymes in target pathogens for increased fungicide performance
  • Designed to remain in the plant longer for consistent control
  • Has an increased affinity for the waxy layer of the turfgrass plant, providing rainfastness for enhanced performance


Application Recommendations


  • Offers a range of application rates (7 fl. oz./A – 14 fl. oz. /A) and intervals (14 – 28 days)
  • Ideal for extended prevention; powerful for curative treatments
  • For resistance management, make no more than two consecutive applications

Tips for Success


  1. Start the season strong with an early application of Posterity prior to conditions favoring dollar spot, such as: temperatures between 59°F and 86°F, continuous high humidity, cool nights and intense dews.
  2. For continued protection from late summer through fall, turn to Posterity for curative and extended preventive applications.
  3. Posterity is excellent for fall treatments that hold strong until winter.
