View the Labels/SDS information for Secure Action Fungicide.
Golf’s leading fungicide, Secure®, is now even better. Secure® Action™ fungicide includes a boost of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM), to better prevent and quickly recover from biotic and abiotic stress. With an enhanced formulation of a trusted multi-site contact fungicide, it offers improved dollar spot control and brings the ASM defense to fairways and greens, providing inside out turf protection for your entire course.
Please review the product label for specific application recommendations.
For guidance on integrating Secure Action into your existing dollar spot control strategy, see Syngenta Agronomic programs.
With up to 12 applications per year, Secure Action activates a plant’s natural defense against disease before a pathogen is present by triggering the salicylic acid pathway and protein production in advance of infection.
Research shows that ASM works best when used as part of a season-long program. Rotating Secure Action with Daconil Action or Heritage Action fungicides provides drought mitigation, improved disease control and the ability to recover from abiotic stress for the entire course all season-long.
Dr. Jim Kerns, associate professor and extension specialist at N.C. State University, walks through his summer bentgrass decline trial that included Secure® Action™ and Daconil® Action fungicides.
