What fungicide is your go-to and why?

“We don’t use a lot of fungicide products, but I’m very pleased with the results I get from Eagle and propiconazole. Both are spray fungicides and use low rates. It’s easy to mix up a backpack and go out and hit what you need to. They are labeled for both lawn and landscape, so I don’t have to carry a multitude of products. They also make for a good product rotation, which is important when dealing with disease.”

“That depends on what type of fungus you have and what type of material (turf, shrubs, etc.) it’s affecting. I wouldn’t suggest that any pesticide is an overall ‘go-to,’ as there is much more information needed to ensure you’re using the correct product and application.”
