By |  September 8, 2015 0 Comments

FMC has made available its Fame fungicides, a new family of FRAC 11 group (Strobilurin) products designed with patented fluoxastrobin to protect against all major patch, spot and mold diseases, according to a news release from FMC.

“Proven by extensive university research, Fame fungicides offer Fluoxastrobin Action, which ensures a high degree of systemic activity to provide very rapid disease protection and stop further growth of established disease,” says Naimur Rahman, strategy and fungicides marketing product manager for FMC. “Since golf course superintendents’ work is always in the spotlight, they can’t afford failure due to disease infestations. Fame will help them succeed.”

FMC says that the Fame fungicide family includes:

  • Fame SC, a suspension concentrate fungicide containing fluoxastrobin and provides rapid foliar and root uptake with xylem and translaminar movement.


  • Fame Granular, a spreadable fluoxastrobin fungicide that offers flexible surface application. It also provides excellent uptake and movement within the plant, ensuring fast-acting disease protection.


  • Fame +C, a suspension concentrate fungicide that combines the systemic activity of fluoxastrobin and the contact action of chlorothalonil to provide a complete turf fungicide premix.


  • Fame +T, a suspension concentrate that combines fluoxastrobin and tebuconazole. University testing has shown that it protects against both root and shoot diseases.


“With systemic and contact activity, Fame +C brings turf managers the best of both worlds for disease control,” Rahman says. “Fame +T, with two layers of systemic protection, optimizes resistance management.”

Fame fungicides are designed to penetrate leaf surfaces quickly while the plant’s roots readily takes up the fluoxastrobin, which is rainfast within 15 minutes, according to the company.
