New Website Provides Easy Access to AMVAC® Turf Products
LoveYourTurf.com provides turf professionals with key product information

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (July 6, 2016) — AMVAC® Chemical Corporation, a business unit of American Vanguard Corporation (NYSE:AVD), recently launched a new website — LoveYourTurf.com — to provide easy access to the company’s turf portfolio.

The website provides a one-stop destination for information on the company’s growing turf fungicide portfolio. Photos that show results of using products such as OREON™, AUTILUS® and TURFCIDE® are available for viewing along with an easy-to-use AMVAC representative locator.

“We have an outstanding portfolio of products for the turf market and wanted to ensure we made it easy for our customers to find and review results obtained with our products,” stated Jeff Alvis, Business Manager, AMVAC Environmental Products. “This website also shows the dedication we have to connecting with turf professionals.”

In the past year, AMVAC has introduced two new fungicides to the turf market – OREON and AUTILUS. Both are FRAC Group 14 products that provide turf professionals tools for controlling disease and managing resistance.

OREON fungicide is a unique combination of two active ingredients — PCNB and tebuconazole fungicides — each with a proven record of performance against a multitude of turf diseases. The water-based, flowable formulation offers improved turf safety compared to other PCNB products. The combination of PCNB and tebuconazole gives golf course superintendents the ability to conveniently use both contact and systemic active ingredients. OREON provides broad-spectrum disease control and is the only premix product on the market that contains a FRAC Group 14 fungicide. This makes OREON an important component of fungicide resistance management programs.

AUTILUS is a PCNB fungicide that provides excellent control of anthracnose on putting green turf consisting of annual bluegrass and/or creeping bentgrass. PCNB forms a protective zone around plants, thus protecting them from disease infection.

TURFCIDE fungicide provides control of important turf diseases, including snow mold and dollar spot. Available in both granular and liquid formulations, it provides protection from soil-borne diseases in greenhouses, shadehouses, nurseries, landscapes and field-grown ornamentals.

“We are proud of our product lineup offered to turf professionals,” noted Alvis. “These products provide part of a disease management program to control major turf diseases.”
