84 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 02.18 • Reduce the interval between sprays and/or increase fungicide rates when disease pres - sure is high. Following these strategies will help reduce the potential for developing fungicide-resis - tant strains of Colletotri um cereale on the golf course. Funding This work was supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Hatch Multistate Project 0206183 through the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Sta - tion, Hatch Multistate Project NJ12294.

The list of products in this table is not intended to be complete. Other turf fungicide products/trade names containing the same active ingredients may also be available. a FRAC codes indicate the biochemical mode of action, according to the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee ( M5 indicates multisite inhibitor, and P1 represents a plant defense-inducing product. NC, not classified. b Efficacy of fungicides labeled for the control of anthracnose based on a 1-4 scale, where 1= inconsistent control, 2 = fair to good control, 3 = good to excellent control, and 4 = consistently good to excellent control in published studies (32). Additional combination products labeled for anthracnose control, but for which published data on effectiveness is limited, include: Heritage Action (azoxystrobin + acibenzolar-S-methyl, Syngenta), Briskway (azoxystrobin + difenoconazole, Syngenta), ZOXY-T and StrobeT (azoxystrobin + tebuconazole, ArmorTech and Quali-Pro, respectively), Instrata (chlorothalonil + fludioxonil + propiconazole, Syngenta), E-Pro ETQ (chlorothalonil + iprodione, SipcamAdvan), E-Scape ETQ (chlo - rothalonil + tebuconazole, SipcamAdvan), Exteris Stressgard (fluopyram + trifloxystrobin, Bayer), TMI (iprodione + thiophanate-methyl, ArmorTech), Interface Stressgard (iprodione + trifloxystrobin, Bayer), Pillar (pyraclostrobin + triticonazole, BASF), and SysStar (thiophanate-methyl + flutolanil, Regal). c Represents an efficacious combination of two individual products (not currently sold as a combination product) that can be tank-mixed by turf managers on site. d Do not apply to cool-season turf when daytime temperatures are 85 F or higher. Add a pigment to Oreon (for example, PAR) to mask chlorosis, which may occur at the high label rate. After application, immediately irrigate with 0.25-inch water. e Lower efficacy rating applies when fungicide-resistant isolates of Colletotrichum cereale are present. Table 2.
