Tourney TM is a new turf fungicide that received registration in August, 2013 for use on golf courses and sod farms. The active ingredient is metconazole. It can be used to control dollar spot, anthracnose basal rot and foliar blight, brown patch, waitea patch, summer patch and snow moulds. It is a good addition to the IPM tool kit because it is a rotational product that can be used to control waitea patch (azoxystrobin is also registered for the control of waitea patch). Visit the Valent Canada website to view the Canadian label. http://www.valent.ca/valentus/Data/Labels/20130821_Tourney%20Fungicide_FINAL.pdf
