Planning now to protect your golf course from pink and gray snow mold can pay big dividends next spring. Snow mold can cause substantial damage to greens, tees and fairways and may interfere with your course schedule next spring. Don’t compromise: apply a preventive fungicide this fall to ensure rounds of play will not be affected.

Snow mold can thrive:

  • In temperatures between 32-40 F with extended leaf wetness
  • Both with and without snow cover
  • When turf is covered with dead debris or has excessive thatch
  • With heavy late-season applications of nitrogen (more than 0.5 lb./1,000 ft.2)

Shield your turf from Old Man Winter with the Syngenta GreenTrust® 365 Snow Mold Guarantee, which now includes Tuque™ exoGEM™ fungicide, the latest fungicide for golf from Syngenta. Instrata® fungicide is assured for up to 130 days of pink and gray snow mold protection when applied on greens and fairways at a rate of 9-11 fl. oz./1,000 ft.2. The three active ingredients in Instrata suppress spring disease pressure, such as anthracnose, providing manageable disease control for the year following application.

Purchase enough Tuque exoGEM during EOP to protect yourself next spring. Plus, with SummerPay™, you can buy now and defer payment until June 20, 2024 on purchases of Tuque exoGEM.
In addition, a tank mix of Posterity® XT and Ascernity® fungicides guarantees 110 days of protection, while Tuque exoGEM offers 90 days of snow mold control, by combining the power of SOLATENOL® technology with the consistency of fludioxonil found in Medallion® SC fungicide. These two active ingredients complement each other for protection against both gray and pink snow molds.

Consider adding a fall clean-up application of Secure® Action™ fungicide to curb any lingering summer diseases prior to your snow mold application. Healthy turf heading into winter has a greater chance for quicker green up and recovery in the spring.

During the Early Order Period you can earn 18% savings on the Posterity XT + Ascernity Multipak and Instrata with the new Winter Protection Solution pallet. This product combination gives you the tools to ensure your turf is protected through the winter and ready for spring green up.
