Agronomic Approach to Dollar Spot Control
Syngenta agronomic programs help superintendents plan appropriately for the season ahead. These programs have been thoroughly researched and tested by technical experts to help your turf defend against dollar spot so it performs at its best and quickly recovers from stress.
When following an agronomic program for dollar spot control, it is important to include multi-site contact fungicides like Secure Action or Daconil Action as part of a season-long approach. These fungicides attack the dollar spot pathogen at multiple sites versus a single site and can mitigate the risk of resistance development. They also help control dollar spot strains found to be resistant to other chemistries. Fungicides with multiple modes of action like Briskway®, Posterity XT or Posterity Forte help manage resistance and help control multiple pathogens all season.

Dollar Spot Resistance Management
When making dollar spot applications, resistance management should always be considered and preventive applications should be prioritized. Preventive applications are active before a pathogen is present while curative applications can accelerate resistance development by exposing more pathogens to the mode of action.
To help manage resistance, we recommend these best practices:
- For optimal timing and control, follow a Syngenta agronomic program that positions applications based on conditions that favor pathogen growth.
- Do not make more than two sequential applications of any SDHI fungicide. Rotate and/or tank-mix a Posterity brand fungicide or Velista® fungicide with low- or medium-risk chemistries that are not in FRAC Group 7.
- Rotating applications of single-site fungicides with a multi-contact fungicide can also help with resistance management. On greens, tank-mix and/or rotate Velista and/or a Posterity brand fungicide with Daconil Action, Secure Action and Briskway fungicides. On fairways, rotate a Posterity brand fungicide with Secure Action and/or Daconil Action.
- If curative applications are required, a multi-site contact fungicide like Secure Action is an excellent choice for efficacy and resistance management.
