“Rayora fungicide provides golf course superintendents, operators and managers inside-out protection and curative activity on diseases that can have a significant impact on their fairways and tees,” said Mike Sisti, golf and lawn care market manager for FMC. “This is an exciting chapter for FMC as we continue to develop and deliver innovative fungicide technology and grow our golf course disease management portfolio.”

Harnessing the power of its active ingredient, flutriafol, Rayora fungicide moves rapidly into green tissue via translaminar and xylem movement. Grass roots can also take up the active ingredient when it is translocated throughout the xylem to impede internal fungal growth. This protects the existing plant as well as new plant growth from emerging infections.

Created with user experience in mind, the new fungicide delivers convenience, flexibility and product toughness. Rayora fungicide is formulated as suspension concentrate and can be easily tank mixed with other fungicides, insecticides, herbicides and plant growth regulators.

“For those operators searching for more durability and flexibility in their disease management programs, Rayora fungicide is a perfect fit. It stands up to the wide range of volatile environmental conditions we face. This fungicide is rainfast within two hours and works even during high temperature situations that usually limit fungicide efficacy, especially of those in the DMI class,” Sisti said.

FMC will introduce Rayora fungicide at the 2020 Golf Industry Show in Orlando, Fla. Golf course and turf management professionals can stop by the company’s booth (#3913) to speak with FMC technical experts and receive a firsthand preview of this next-generation DMI.
