Tank mixing

Add the required amount of product directly to the spray tank and mix well. HEADWAY® MAXX is a micro emulsion concentrate (MEC) with minimal odour because the product does not contain petroleum solvents. HEADWAY® MAXX mixes completely with water and may be tank mixed with many commonly used fungicides and liquid fertilisers.

Mixing and spraying

Ensure even application in order to achieve even disease control. Avoid overlapping sprays.

Water volume

Leaf and Crown Diseases: Application volume for leaf and crown infecting diseases (Anthracnose, Brown Patch, Dollar Spot, Grey Leaf Spot, Helminthosporium diseases, Pythium Blight, Red Thread and Winter Fusarium) should be adequate to ensure thorough and even coverage of the turf leaves and penetration to the crowns. Ideal application volume should be 350 to 500 L/ha.

Root Diseases: Application volumes for root infecting diseases (Brown Patch, Couchgrass Decline, Pythium Root Rot, Spring Dead Spot and Take-all Patch) should be as high as possible (approximately 1000 L/ha) to ensure placement close to the soil surface. When lower application volumes are used, washing in should commence as soon as possible after application.

  • HEADWAY MAXX Turf Fungicide combines two actives – one providing strength and longevity and the other speed and early curative action. Once absorbed by the leaf, it moves up through the plant and is redistributed to protect new leaf growth. In addition, it’s also absorbed through the roots making it effective against root diseases like Pythium, Take-all Patch and Couchgrass Decline.


    • Control and prevention of a broad spectrum of turf diseases including Dollar Spot, Pythium, Anthracnose, Brown Patch and the ERI complex (Couchgrass Decline and Take-all Patch)
    • A low odour, non-staining formulation


    • MAXX technology that ensures excellent tank mix compatibility with other fungicides, foliar fertilisers and PRIMO MAXX
    • The option to tank mix with DACONIL WEATHER STIK or MEDALLION Turf Fungicide to get the combination of systemic and contact action for high risk periods
