Daconil Action may seem like magic, but the process of boosting the turf's natural defenses is very real. What is different about Daconil Action?
Daconil Action fungicide is a multi-site contact fungicide containing the most utilized active ingredient in turf: chlorothalonil, plus a "Turf Protein Booster" enhancing active ingredient Acibenzolar-S-methyl. Unlike traditional methods of disease control, this active ingredient is not a fungicide as it has no direct effect against pathogenic fungi and bacteria. Instead, it acts much like a vaccination. When applied, Acibenzolar-S-methyl triggers the natural defense response, or the Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR), of the turfgrass by activating production of pathogenesis-related proteins (PR proteins). The PR protein boost awakens the turf's resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses like drought. In addition, this internal response within the plant enhances its own defense system against certain fungal and bacterial disease attacks. Thus, Acibenzolar-S-methyl bridges the gap between genetic resistance and conventional disease control by activating the plant's own natural defenses.
Turn six applications into eight.
A FIFRA Section 2(ee) recommendation for a Daconil Action use rate of 1.6 - 2.0 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.* allows for another 24 to 28 days of dollar spot control on fairways. That's 33 percent more than generic products. With this new lower application rate, you get an extra month of peace-of-mind regarding what's beneath your feet.
