Medallion now labeled for use on snow mold



Syngenta Professional Products has received a new label from the Environmental Protection Agency for its Medallion fungicide. Medallion (fludioxonil) is now labeled for control of pink snow mold and gray snow mold in the turf market.

“When applied at a rate of 0.5 ounces per 1,000 square feet in the fall before snow cover, Medallion gives turf managers protection against snow mold,” said Dr. Mike Agnew, Syngenta field technical manager for turf.

Although Medallion is a contact fungicide, research in the Pacific Northwest, the Northeast and the Rocky Mountains shows that it actually controls the disease in the thatch and near the surface of the soil, delivering preventive disease control.

Medallion can also be tank-mixed with Banner MAXX. “The Medallion/Banner MAXX combination offers a broader spectrum and higher level of control for a longer period of time,” said Agnew. “This is especially true for snow mold and summer patch.”

The fungicide also offers control of leaf spot, dead spot of bentgrass, brown patch, and yellow patch.
