FMC Corp. announced it will debut Serata fungicide at the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show in San Diego, Feb. 5-10. Serata is the latest fungicide for the golf market in FMC Professional Solutions’ expanding portfolio that includes Fame, Rayora, and Kalida fungicides.

Serata is specially formulated to combat Pythium diseases. It contains the active ingredient picarbutrazox, a new compound from the novel tetrazolyloximes class of chemistry. FMC said the new mode of action fungicide provides superintendents a new tool to combat Pythium root rot, Pythium blight, and Pythium root dysfunction. Researchers theorize that picarbutrazox works by affecting the biosynthesis of phospholipids. The active ingredient disrupts the normal function of the pathogen’s cellular membrane.

Pythium root rot and related Pythium diseases can be challenging for many golf course superintendents,” said Evan Parenti, FMC golf and lawn market manager. “Serata fungicide trials around the country have demonstrated effective control of Pythium root rot for extended periods.”

Serata is labeled for use on golf courses, industrial lawns and commercial sites. For more information on Serata, visit FMC booth no. 1537 at the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show or for more information on Serata.
