A Better Standard For Dollar Spot Control


Emerald fungicide works differently than anything else you’ve seen used to control dollar spot. That means Emerald fungicide can effectively control dollar spot that has developed resistance to other fungicides. When used as directed, Emerald fungicide:

  • Provides unprecedented dollar spot control in virtually every major turf species, and in every region of the United States.
  •  Controls dollar spot for up to 28 days with a single application.
  • Delivers better dollar spot control in bentgrass than other fungicides.
  • Gives superintendents a true resistance-management tool.
  • Utilizes low use rates and provides strong residual control.

Dollar Spot Has Never Seen Anything Like It

And neither have you. Emerald fungicide is a different class of fungicide chemistry for dollar spot control. The active ingredient, boscalid, attacks pathogens that cause dollar spot in a unique and highly effective way.

Emerald fungicide inhibits a system called complex II in the mitochondria of fungal cells. By depriving the fungal cells of energy, Emerald fungicide disrupts fungal growth and development, halting disease development. Both the mode and site of action of Emerald fungicide differ from any other fungicides used to control dollar spot, which is why Emerald fungicide can effectively control pathogens that have developed resistance to other fungicides. In other words, it works.

Where To Use Emerald Fungicide

Research shows that Emerald fungicide provides excellent dollar spot control in every region of the country, including yours. And Emerald fungicide controls dollar spot in most major turf species, including:

  • Creeping Bentgrass
  • Colonial Bentgrass
  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Annual Ryegrass
  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • Common Bermudagrass
  • Hybrid Bermudagrass
  • Annual Bluegrass
  • St. Augustinegrass
  • Tall Fescue
  • Bahiagrass
  • Zoysiagrass
  • Centipedegrass   

How To Apply Emerald Fungicide

Because it is a different class of fungicide chemistry for dollar spot control, Emerald fungicide can serve as a valuable resistance-management tool. As with all fungicide chemistries, however, Emerald fungicide should be applied as part of a rotation. For additional disease control, Emerald fungicide can be tank-mixed with other fungicides.

To achieve optimal results, make no more than two successive applications of Emerald fungicide. For specific application rates and instructions, consult the product label.
