Pillar® G Intrinsic® Brand Fungicide Receives California Registration

May 26, 2015

Provides New Options for Disease Control and Plant Health in Turfgrass

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, May 26, 2015 – BASF today announced that Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide has received California registration.

Pillar G control over important plant diseases including dollar spot, anthracnose, brown and large patch, take-all patch, summer patch, snow molds such as Microdochium patch (pink snow is a combination Insignia® fungicide and Trinity® fungicide on a granular carrier. This combination of two highly effective active ingredients delivers excellent preventative  mold) and leaf spots.

“The registration of Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide in California will really help golf course and lawncare professionals who want a proven granular product that delivers disease control against as many as 27 turfgrass diseases in an easy and convenient manner,” said Joe Lara, senior product manager for BASF ornamentals. “Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide will also help maintain higher quality turf as the effects of the California drought and limited water availability take on greater importance“

Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide is formulated on a clay granule that provides excellent spreading characteristics because of its density and uniform particle size. The active ingredient moves quickly off of the granule after regular irrigation or precipitation so that it can protect turfgrass soon after application.

Pillar G Intrinsic brand fungicide is labeled for use on most turfgrasses for both lawns and golf courses and provides healthier and higher quality turf, especially during environmentally stressful periods.
