Daconil Action Fungicide - 2.5 Gallons
Daconil Action fungicide is a broad-spectrum turf fungicide and plant activator that controls 15 and suppresses two diseases. Daconil Action combines the unmatched dependability of Daconil fungicide with the added benefit of acibenzolar-S-methyl (also known as acibenzolar).
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.
- Enhanced control of dollar spot and anthracnose
- Suppression of new diseases including Pythium blight and bacterial wilt*
- Enhances turf health and increases tolerances to biotic and abiotic stressors like drought tolerance
