“Fall is one of the most crucial seasons to treat turf for nematodes,” says, Greg Freyermuth, sales manager for Agriguard. “This rebate makes it even more affordable to use MultiGuard in coming months to catch a nematode outbreak before root structures become permanently damaged.”
MultiGuard Protect is a safe, natural, non-phytotoxic nematicide that doesn’t leave harmful residues, according to the company. Naturally derived from sugar cane, MultiGuard Protect is an environmentally friendly way to manage nematodes on contact that doesn’t cause physical damage to turf when applied per label recommendations.
The product is meant to be applied as a program approach to nematode management, with three applications on 21 day intervals applied both during the fall and spring season timed with the plants’ root growth cycle.
Registered by the U.S. EPA, MultiGuard Protect can be used on established sport and athletic fields, golf course turf such as tees and greens, practice greens, spot treatment on fairways, roughs and also on turf and sod farms.
