Product Overview

Broadest Spectrum SDHI Fungicide in the Golf Market

Velista® fungicide is the broadest spectrum and only SDHI labeled for anthracnose in the golf market. Spring and fall are ideal seasons to clean up greens, tees and fairways. In addition to controlling anthracnose, Velista also protects against dollar spot, brown patch and more. When used in rotation with Briskway® fungicide, Velista delivers excellent control of summer stress diseases on greens when temperatures shift from warm to hot.

A FIFRA Section 2(ee) recommendation* for Velista was granted for control of these extra diseases:

  • Summer Patch
  • Brown Ring Patch
  • Spring Dead Spot
  • Fairy Ring
  • Leaf and Sheath Spot
  • Rapid Blight
