application recommendations 

TURF 

Use Phostrol® for the effective control of Pythium and damping-off diseases of turf grasses on golf courses, parks, commercial landscapes, commercial turf production and sod farms. When conditions favor disease, begin preventive applications and repeat at indicated intervals per label. Use higher rate of application when disease pressure is severe. 

LANDSCAPE, GOLF COURSE, NURSERY, FORESTRY AND PARK APPLICATIONS* 

Use Phostrol for effective control of Phytophthora and Pythium diseases associated with stem and canker blight (sudden oak death, Phytophthora ramorum), beech decline and general tree decline syndromes in landscapes, nurseries, golf courses, forests and parks. Apply Phostrol to plants such as, but not limited to, beech, cedar, chestnut, crabapple, dogwood, elm, fir, hawthorn, juniper, linden, monterey pine, oaks (coastal, live, shreve, black, canyon), ornamental pear, pyracantha, sweet birch, sweet gum, white pine, white cedar and willow. 

Make applications before disease development and in conjunction with good cultural management practices. Use higher rate of application when disease pressure is severe. Do not exceed application rates or apply more frequently than stated on label or plant injury may occur. Do not apply to plants that are heat or moisture stressed. Do not apply to plants that are in a state of dormancy. Do not exceed spray intervals or label rates in order to avoid plant injury.
