APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
TURF
For use on all fine turf applications such as industrial and municipal lawns, including office parks, sod farms, cemeteries, parks and golf course greens, tees, aprons, and fairways of cool- and warm-season grasses, such as bentgrasses, bermudagrasses, bluegrass, fescues, ryegrasses, St. Augustine grasses, zoysia grasses or their mixtures. Protect™ DF is not phytotoxic to any of the above mentioned grasses when used in accordance with the label. Refer to General Use on label instructions except when more specific directions are given for individual crops or diseases.

Protect DF can provide both curative and protective action. Start preventive applications when conditions for disease occurrence are favorable or when disease first appears and repeat at 10-14 day intervals or until disease threat is past. When conditions are especially favorable for disease development, apply maximum fungicide use rate on a 10-day spray schedule. For best results, use spray mixture the same day it is prepared. Spray uniformly over the area to be treated with a properly calibrated power sprayer. Apply after mowing or avoid mowing twelve hours after application. Apply specified amounts in sufficient water to obtain thorough coverage, 1-3 gal /1,000 sq ft suggested for mechanical applications, smaller volumes are acceptable for hand applications and with proper equipment calibration and nozzle selection. When treating golf greens, always treat aprons and approaches.
