Thiram* [Tetramethylthiuram disulfide]
A thiram fungicide with contact action that is labeled for control of a variety of turf diseases.
Turf diseases controlled include:
Dollar Spot, Brown Patch, Rust, Leaf Spot, Red Thread, Copper Spot and Melting Out.
Preventative Dosage: Apply in mid spring or when disease symptoms first
appear. Spray at 7-10 day intervals throughout the expected disease period. Use
3 3/4 fl oz of SPOTRETE F per 1,000 sq ft (5 quart per acre) in 2-5 gal of water.
Curative Dosage: Apply 7 1/2 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft (2 1/2 gal per acre) in 2-5 gal
of water. Apply when disease first appears and repeat application at 3-5 day intervals
as necessary. When disease is controlled, follow preventative instructions.
Pink and Gray Snow Mold (Fusarium nivale and Typhula spp.)
Spray in early to mid winter just prior to the first snowfall. Apply 12 fl oz of
SPOTRETE F per 1,000 sq ft (4 gal per acre) in sufficient water (2-5 gal per
1,000 sq ft recommended) for proper coverage. If possible, make repeat applications
following each thaw using 3 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft (1 gal per acre).
Follow with an application in early spring using 3 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft (1 gal
per acre). The addition of a latex based sticker to the pre snow treatment
prolongs the residual effectiveness of the treatment.
Spotrete F is useful as a repellent for deterring deer from migrating into unwanted areas. It works by discouraging deer from localized feeding and browsing. Prepare and spray Spotrete F to runoff. Add 1 quart of Spotrete F with 1 pint of spreader sticker to 7 quarts of water. For best results, spray when temperatures are greater than 40 degrees F and relative humidity is less than 70 percent.
