Avid Receives PA Section 24(c) Special Local Need Label

March 13, 2013 in Research

Nematode control has been a serious concern for turfgrass managers since the removal of Nemacur from the market. With no controls available for nematodes, damage has become increasingly severe on golf course putting greens. Damage has been severe in Western Pennsylvania, but reports of turf loss have been reported through much of the state.

Working with Syngenta, Penn State faculty within the Center for Turfgrass Science have successfully received an EPA Section 24(c) Special Local Need Label for abamectin (Trade Name Avid).
