KANSAS CITY, Mo. – PBI-Gordon Corporation is the new preferred supplier of Segway Fungicide SC, which treats pythium diseases that can plague cool-season and warm-season turf, especially on golf courses. Segway Fungicide SC is a proprietary product of Japan-based Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Ltd. (ISK).

PBI-Gordon will begin selling Segway Fungicide SC to distributors on May 17, 2014, for use on turf and landscape ornamentals. The fungicide uses the active ingredient cyazofamid to provide preventative control of pythium root dysfunction, pythium blight and damping-off in turf and phytopthora crown and root rots, and pythium crown and root rots in landscape ornamentals. Segway has been marketed for seven years and has demonstrated excellent results in university tests and in end-user field applications.
