For the control of Pythium in turf.

SUBDUE MAXX is an excellent choice to use preventatively or early curatively during high Pythium infection risk periods. The fast absorption and systemic movement combines to ensure true “stopping power” for early curative Pythium Leaf Blight situations. For Pythium Root Rot a preventative plan is the only safe approach.

Tank mixing

Add the required amount of product directly to the spray tank and mix well. SUBDUE MAXX is a micro emulsion concentrate (MEC) with minimal odour because the product does not contain petroleum solvents. SUBDUE 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 (Pythium Leaf Blight) 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 (Pythium Root Rot and Seedling Damping Off) 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.

  • In a transport emergency dial 000, Police or Fire Brigade.
