New Heritage Maxx from Syngenta is now approved for use in Ireland, just a month after gaining full approval for the UK and will be available for treatments starting in the spring. Heritage Maxx utilises a unique five-way action to target a magnificent seven turf diseases and protect turf quality.

Heritage Maxx features active recycling of its powerful fungicidal properties, providing disease protection that goes on cut after cut. Syngenta Technical Manager, Dr Simon Watson, believes it will be especially useful in Ireland and areas where continuous turf growth through the season can quickly reduce the efficacy of contact fungicides on the leaf.

It has been developed as a new liquid formulation specifically for turf, utilising the Syngenta Maxx formulation technology. The sub-micron particle size of the Maxx formulation can get into the leaf faster and move quicker to the site of any disease infection. As a result the level of disease control in trials has been outstanding – with faster effects and longer lasting results. The new liquid formulation is also easier to use than granules and mixes to a colourless spray mix that leaves no trace on turf after application.

Heritage Maxx has been approved for the broadest spectrum of turf diseases, with seven diseases on the label, including the most prevalent foliar disease, Fusarium Patch, the increasingly difficult to control Anthracnose, Leaf Spots common on winter sports pitches and Rusts that occur in wet warm periods on under fertilised turf. The unique root activity and uptake means Heritage Maxx is also approved for the two key soil-borne turf diseases, Take-All Patch and Type 2 Fairy Rings.

Heritage Maxx is distributed in the UK and Ireland by Scotts Professional.
