Instrata Elite replaces the popular 'Instrata' and delivers even more control whilst reducing it's application rate by two thirds. A broad spectrum foliar fungicide, Instrata Elite combines difenoconazole and fludioxonil with both contact and systemic properties. Instrata Elite is used for the control of fusarium patch, patch, dollar spot, brown patch and also offers moderate control of anthracnose on managed amenity turf.
Instrata Elite mainly covers turf diseases that result in patches of discolouration. Fusarium patch is a turf disease with symptoms of orange/brown patches 1-2 inches across that increase in size and join up to form larger patches. Dollar spot can be found in any area of turf and creates small (dollar size, hence the name) spots of bleached turf on close mown grass, although again they can join up to form large areas. Brown patch causes tan/dark brown patches of water soaked grass. In humid conditions a brown/grey 'smoke ring' may appear around the edge of the patch.
Instrata Elite is a suspension concentrate formulation and should be used in conjunction with other management practices to promote good turf health.
