Tekken FungicidePBI-Gordon Corp.’s Tekken broad spectrum fungicide has received registration from the State of California for use in California.

Approved for use on golf course greens, tees and fairways only, Tekken features one rate to control dollar spot. It also can be used to treat anthracnose, brown patch and 18 more problematic diseases for cool- and warm-season turf.

Tekken’s dual mode of action — through its proprietary blend of active ingredients isofetamid and tebuconazole—provides preventative, systemic control for up to 28 days per application. Its patent-pending formulation delivers increased turf quality, and reduces phytotoxicity and thinning of creeping bentgrass (when compared to stand-alone DMI applications).

Though it can be used at any time during the year, extensive testing by universities and end users has shown that Tekken is effective at controlling summer stress diseases like dollar spot, brown patch and anthracnose. A FRAC Group 7 + 3 flowable suspension concentrate, it should be used in a regularly scheduled preventative spray program and rotated with products that have different modes of action.
