A broad spectrum bactericide and fungicide compound for turfgrass
Sunonic is proven to be extremely effective at protecting turfgrass from a number of diseases caused by fungi and bacteria. Sunonic’s advanced formula works to eliminate pathogenic bacteria and fungi on contact. Sunonic is an alternative to harsh toxic chemical fungicides. Developed for use on golf courses, sports fields, and other high quality grasses, Sunonic is also an excellent fungicide for lawn disease control. No re-entry waiting period is required since it is a product that leaves no residue.
Sunonic works by combining three key organic acids with proven anti-microbial effects. These organic acids inhibit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms by increasing the permeability of their cellular membrane. When sprayed on, Sunonic eliminates spores on contact and is absorbed systemically into the grass. Once absorbed it provides a protective shield against new bacteria and fungi.
How it Works
Sunonic works in two ways. First, it destroys spores on contact, and second, it is absorbed systematically into the grass. Sunonic is rapidly absorbed by the blades of grass and transported to the growth sites, mainly the apex.
Sunonic combines three key organic acids with proven anti-microbial effects. The combination of these acids (ascorbic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid) allows the gathering of complex molecules of high anti-microbial activity.
These organic acids inhibit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms by increasing the permeability of the cellular membrane of bacteria, spores and conidia of fungi.
Sunonic primarily interacts with the surface of the cellular membrane not altering the microorganism’s DNA. Therefore it is not mutagenic which makes it difficult for the microorganism to develop resistance.
