Proven Performance
Strobe Pro G fungicide provides the same long-lasting, broad- spectrum disease control as Strobe Pro fungicide, only now in granular form. Strobe Pro G is a combination of two broad spectrum, preventative, and curative fungicides with systemic properties for the control of many important turfgrass diseases. Strobe Pro G may be applied by drop or rotary broadcast granular spreaders.

Granular herbicide, AI: 0.31% Azoxystrobin, 0.75% Propiconazole

Features & Benefits

  • All markets can easily use Strobe Pro G without making a complete tank mix.
  • LCO’s can treat localized portions of a home lawn.
  • Smaller sport turf facilities that do not have large spray equipment, now have an affordable means to treat most common turf diseases.
  • Golf courses can treat individual greens when the spray equipment is being used for other applications.

Effective Against
Foliar, stem and root diseases such as leaf and stem blights, dollar spot, leaf spots, patch diseases, anthracnose, fairy rings, mildews, molds, and rusts of turfgrass.

Soil Testing for Lawns

Soil testing provides an estimate of the plant-available nutrients in the soil and is an essential tool for a sound fertilization program. Periodic soil testing will help to correct nutrient deficiencies, avoid excess fertilizer applications, and maintain a healthy lawn.

A routine soil fertility test (pH, neutralized acidity, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, organic matter, and cation exchange capacity) is recommended under the following circumstances:

  • Before establishing a new lawn, whether from seed, sod, or sprigs.
  • Every three years on established lawns.
  • Annually when attempting to correct a nutrient deficiency or change the soil pH.
  • When fertilizers containing phosphate or potash have been used on a regular basis for several years.
