Abstract/Contents:"Intelligent use of turfgrass fungicides today requires more detailed knowledge of the commercial products than it did in the past. The most important piece of information in choosing a fungicide is the chemical name of the active ingredient or active ingredients, if it is one of the growing number of combination products. The trade (or brand) name is the easiest name to find on a fungicide label because it is the name the manufacturer wants you to associate with the product. However, the active ingredient, printed in small letters below the trade name, is the actual chemical doing the work." Active ingredients may be exactly the same in a number of products bearing different trade names. If the consumer changes products due to fungicide resistance, they may be changing to a different product with the same active ingredient.
