A fascinating new insight into turf diseases, and how they impact on plant health, will give greenkeepers, turf managers and agronomist the chance to make better agronomy decisions to minimise damage and protect playing surface quality more effectively.

Presented for the first time at BTME 2015, revolutionary new high-tech microscopy and novel 3-D imagery – exclusively captured by the Syngenta R&D biokinetics crop imaging and sensing unit – has captured details of just how Microdochium (Fusarium) Patch germinates and penetrates into the leaf, and where the disease pathogen attacks cells.

Using these techniques Syngenta Technical Managers can explain how different fungicides work, and identify where the modes of action are most appropriate in tackling different stages of disease and under different conditions.

Looking at turf disease at such incredible detail and understanding the issues inside out means that greenkeepers can select the most appropriate option for any given situation.
