Signature Xtra Stressgard® available late October 2019

Signature Xtra Stressgard® is a new and innovative fungicide that delivers excellent disease control and enhanced plant health effects resulting in improved playability on turf surfaces.

Signature Xtra Stressgard is a true systemic fungicide that controls tough turf diseases – pythium and anthracnose, as well as enhancing turf health and minimising turf stress from abiotic and biotic sources. A new and improved formulation of fosetyl-aluminium, optimised with new proprietary components to provide excellent preventative control of turf disease and turf health improvement even under the most severe environmental conditions.

The label for Signature Xtra Stressgard contains a choice of rates and application intervals to offer turf managers outstanding flexibility to tailor programs for the specific conditions at their facility and to fit in with preferred application practices.

Jyri Kaapro, Senior Market Development Specialist – Turf/VM for Bayer says “Chipco® Signature has been a known and trusted product, adopted as the backbone of summer disease management programs for more than 20 years here in Australia. Bayer is now pleased to announce the commercial release of Signature Xtra Stressgard.

“Signature Xtra Stressgard is one of Bayer’s most extensively researched innovations in recent times. The large number of local and overseas trials have demonstrated performance that delivers a new level of benefit to turf managers all over Australia who manage surfaces that encounter biotic (e.g. disease) and abiotic (e.g. heat, traffic, shade etc.) stresses”.

Signature Xtra Stressgard will be sold in a convenient and easy to use, 2.75 kg HDPE bottle and will be available late October, 2019.
