We expect that the innovative chemistry of Contend will bring snow mold protection for fairways to a new level. With four a.i.s, including a new active ingredient to the turf market and three modes of action, Contend will be an important tool for superintendents to use on fairways, while Instrata® fungicide will continue to be our lead snow mold control recommendation for greens. – Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager at Syngenta
Solatenol, a third generation SDHI developed by Syngenta, binds strongly to the plant’s waxy layer and slowly penetrates the plant tissue for long-lasting pathogen defense. This binding, plus translaminar activity, offers quick uptake for superior protection. By combining Solatenol with three trusted active ingredients, Contend provides powerful protection against multiple stages of disease development.
