Heritage G is a granular fungicide for use on turf and provides the same long-lasting broad-spectrum control of turfgrass diseases including brown patch, anthracnose and take-all patch, as do the wettable granule and liquid Heritage formulations. Heritage G is perfect for operations that want to provide top-notch disease control, without the attributes of a liquid fungicide or when weather conditions prevent spraying. By using a highly water-soluble carrier, Heritage G is able to provide the effectiveness of a sprayable with the convenience of a granular.
- Lighter-weight granules spread over a wider area than traditional granules. Available in 30-pound bags.
- Highly soluble carrier allows for the efficacy of a sprayable formulation
- Will typically disperse with a heavy dew or light watering (approximately 2–3 sprinkler revolutions)
- Broad-spectrum control up to 28 days
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW LABEL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE BUYING OR USING THIS PRODUCT.
Heritage® G is a potent inhibitor of spore germination and mycelial growth. It should be applied in the early stages of disease development to achieve optimal results.
Syngenta introduced Heritage G, a low-risk fungicide that is not only effective, but is readily compatible with numerous other turf products, is conveniently packaged, and is easy to use. Through proper handling and application, Heritage G can help simplify any disease management program by saving the turf professional both time and labor.
Heritage G enters the turfgrass plant in several ways. It may be absorbed through the leaf blade or stem and may be taken up by the root system. Once inside the plant, it is translocated upward (acropetally) and is then uniformly distributed. As soon as Heritage G is applied on the leaf surface, it protects turfgrass from infection. Once Heritage G gets inside the plant, it works to stop the infection and prevents it from spreading. Application rates and intervals of Heritage G vary depending on target diseases.
Fields of Use: For use on golf courses, residential lawns and sports turf.
Applicators and other handlers must wear:
• Long-sleeved shirt and long pants
• Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material such as polyvinyl chloride, nitrile rubber, or butyl rubber
• Shoes plus socks
The residual activity of Heritage® G allows for extended application intervals up to 28 days, depending on disease pressure. The extended intervals allow for fewer applications which significantly decrease the time and labor required for managing turf diseases.

By Ray on July 6, 2010
I was cautious when I first saw this product, but a neighbor of mine recommended it to me. I wasn't too keen on the high price tag for only 30lbs. I bought it anyway, applied it and waited. In about a week and a half I started to see a difference in my lawn. In two weeks the brown spots or dollar spots (don't know which fungus I had) had almost vanished with a few visible spots here and there (I noticed the spots others might not be able to see). The only drawback is the price. If it wasn't so expensive I would have purchased two bags for my front and backyard. I guess I will try the cheaper Bayer brand fungicide to see if has the same affect. Great shipping as well, got it 3 or 4 days after ordering.

Worked Well for Summer Patch
By John on October 23, 2010
Had 4 yr old sod with summer patch covering almost the entire yard in Michigan. Applied using Scotts speedygreen broadcast spreader at 3 3/4 setting and within weeks almost all of the brown rings were gone and the grass will filling back in those areas. Reapplied to those areas where it was still a little brown and those came back as well. Only downside is the cost, but I guess that it's better than a couple thousand to replace the sod.

3 types of fungus in tifway 419
By Terry on June 21, 2011
In Arizona having Bermuda tifway 419, it's always got some type of fungus going on. This is also because of our fantastic soil that takes a lot of water to get wet, yet stays wet longer, but drys concrete on the top layer. Add the queen of thatcher maker of grass to that and you got 1-2-3 types of fungus happening. Heritage G nailed it. Took about a week to see the difference. But be WARNED "Do Not Use" it 2x in a row. Rotate to Subdue and the. 3 hit it with Compass or other. Fungus strains mutate & will become resistant to that chemical. I had used Spectracide for 2 years and now it will not even touch any fungus I get. So I learned the hard way. But Heritage being broad spectrum & not knowing what you got is what I would hit it with the first go around DEFINITELY!

Not so fast
By Richard on September 13, 2012
I had lawn disease for several years in a row that was called "red thread" which was scattered over 50% of my lawn along with "brown patch" over another 20%. Both diseases were verified in the samples that were tested my local state (CT) agricultural experiment station. They recommeded a fungicide, less irrigation, thatching, and replanting in the early fall. I would do that and my lawn would recover and look great again by late fall. Unfortunately, this happened every year. Early this year, I bought 3 bags of Heritage G and diligently followed the instructions to the letter. Rather than do the entire lawn I only did the areas that went bad each year. (no problems under trees or other shaded areas so those were skipped.) By mid summer, both diseases were back and I was greatly disappointed. Even applying it more than the recommended amount wouldn's stop it and now I'm thatching and planting again. This product did nothing for me. Richard

Worked amazingly well on my Tall Fescue lawn!
July 14, 2013
I've had lawn disease problems for a couple years now (since i've reseeded the lawn and actually had a nice lush turf), killing of large patches of the lawn. From what i can tell now after a lot of research, it's leaf spot, gray leaf spot, fusarium blight or similar. This spring (before all the research), i tried to fend it off by using the Bayer fungicide from Home Depot, applying on May 1 and June 1. In June, we had 10"+ of rain, mostly in the evening or at night here in the DC area, and i saw the same areas start to brown up again, and it was spreading fast. So i did a ton of research, and after finding the NC State turf files site and their ratings of fungicides (http://www.turffiles.ncsu.edu/Diseases/Default.aspx#IS004047), i bought a bag of this Heritage. I also discovered that the Bayer fungicide's active ingredient, propiconazole, is not very highly rated in its effectiveness compared to azoxystrobin (Heritage), or thiophanate-methyl (which is in products like Cleary's 3336, and the Scott's fungicide, although a lower dosage). I applied it with my Scott's deluxe edge guard rotary spreader set at 4. By the time i applied it, it had been about 10-14 days and the fungus had spread quickly. I also had a bag of the Scott's fungicide and spread that a couple days later. From my research, using fungicides from different chemical classes is helpful to not only kill the fungus, but to prevent resistance build up. Well, a week later, the lawn started coming back, and after 10 days now, it is on its way to recovery! I honestly didn't have high hopes, especially since we've been getting more evening rain the last week, but the treatment has worked. I plan on putting another treatment, this time of the 3336 after 14 days to hopefully finish the job. a couple pieces of advice to people: do your research! you have to make sure you're not overusing the same class of fungicide or the fungus will build resistance. For example, the Heritage should not be used more than 2 TIMES a season, at most 3 if you're rotating it with other classes. anyway, i plan on using this in a preventative dosage next year along with the 3336 to hopefully stave off the fungus from starting in the first place. Yes, it's expensive, but compared to the time it and effort it takes to reseed your lawn, it's well worth it!
By Luis on August 6, 2014
I was very hesitant to fork out $100 for this product but after reading so many good reviews I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did. I have St. Augustine grass and with all this central Florida rain the fungus was spreading and FAST. At first I didn't notice any difference but I must say after 10 days my lawn has really started to come around. The brown spots are disappearing and my lawn is finally starting to look green and beautiful again. I wish I could say the same for both of my neighbors!
So Far So Good
By Danny on July 26, 2014
Lawn is already showing steady recovery from "Take All" rot and other fungus issues within 1 week of the application. Well worth the $ as this item works as advertised. Made a call to the manufacturer and their support and assistance was very helpful in selecting the settings for the Scott's rotary spreader. Do My Own Pest Control delivered as promised and even matched a lower online price from a competing firm with zero hesitation. Will be using these folks for the long term!
Red Thread Fungus
By Dave on July 18, 2014
Bought Heritage G to treat my fungus. Worked well until my neighbor cross contaminted my lawn and the Red Thread returned. Ordered more Heritage G and waiting for results. My neighbor also bought Heritage G to apply the sametime I reapply.
Found the solution to years of frustration
By Gopack on July 14, 2014
Went onto North Carolina State's website to get advice for fungus in the NC humid summers and they were spot on. Heritage G worked immediately, was easy to apply and saved my fescue lawn from the increasing fungus resistance to both the Bayer and Scott's treatment. I am over 14 days into the treatment and still looking good. I estimate that I will need one more application to carry me safely through the summer. I will no longer be wasting hundreds of dollars on big box single active ingredient treatments as the fungus is smarter than than.

Heritage G Fungicide Granular
By Tom on June 24, 2014
This has been a good product for fungus control. I have tried the box store products, but those products did not stop the spread of the Red thread my lawn gets annually. The Heritage worked well last year and appears to have stopped its growth this year. Cons are it is very expensive (lose one star) and recommend two applications to be sure you have knocked the fungus out.

Heritage G Fungicide
August 1, 2013
I purchased the 30 lb bag of Heritage G for treating my lawn, St. Augusting grass. After two treatments the fungus was gone. If you want to stop the spread of fungus and provide grass with an opportuntiy to defeat existing infections use heritage G. I can highly recommend the Heritage G, although it may cost a little more than other fungicides.

Heritage G Fungicide
July 22, 2013
I use this product to control pythium on fescue turf in inland southern California where it gets very hot. I applied Heritage G after the pythium started and it stopped the fungus and the lawn is recovering. Excellent results, fast acting, easy to apply, I used the highest rate. Just wished it would last longer.

June 28, 2010Davd asked:
QAre there any restrictions or concerns when using this product in a residential setting (e.g., dogs, runoff)?
AWe strongly recommend that you fully read the Heritage G product label to learn all precautions and warnings. Heritage G does have the standard pesticide warnings regarding pets, people, and runoff. All pets and people should be out of the area where the application is being applied and they can return as soon as the area is dry. Do not allow runoff or over spray to get into any body of water or water supply as it can impact aquatic invertebrates.
February 19, 2012Chris from Austin, Texas asked:
QCan Heritage G be used to cure a fungicide after it is already well developed and has killed the grass?
A large area of my St. Augustine lawn (approximately 40 square feet died a couple of years ago. I tried to re-sod the area last year and it died yet again returning the area to dirt. It has been suggested that I need to treat for fungus in the soil and a local gardener had suggested Heritage. Information I've read on the product states it must be used as a preventative when diseases are emerging. Can it be used to cure fungus in the soil without grass present? Is there a better product or method to cure my soil?
AFungicides usually work best when applied as the disease is just beginning or as a preventative. We are not sure if Heritage will work for the treatment you described. We recommend calling the manufacturer as they are the experts on their product. You can reach Syngenta by calling 866-796-4368.
September 1, 2010Greg asked:
QI have the Heritage G. The label says nothing about whether to water the product in or not?
AIrrigation will depend on what and where you are treating. Although, we have recently started carrying fungicides due to popular request from our customers, grass and lawns are not our area of expertise. Therefore, we are not giving advice yet on fungicides as we are not the experts. We recommend calling the manufacturer Sygenta. They can be reached at 1-866-796-4368.
June 15, 2012Bob from Gainesville, Ga 30504 asked:
QIf using a Earthway 2750 shoulder spreader what setting do I use to apply Heritage G Fungicide?
I have brown patch just starting what setting should i use on my broastcast spreader.
AThe easiest way to determine the correct setting for your Earthway 2750 is: If you need to use 2-4lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add 2-4 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft). If you have product left, your setting is too low. If you run out of product, your setting is too high. Because of the many brands of spreaders available the Heritage manufacturer does not provide the exact spreader settings.

November 4, 2013Garvin from Charlotte, Nc asked:
QI bought Heritage G granules but would like a different fungicide to continue treatment/prevention to avoid building resistance. What are the best options, ideally several as I know some products are beyond my reach financially lawn is tall fescue approximately 8,000 sq ft. Right now, the lawn has several fairly large patches of dead grass. I'm doubtful whether it is worth putting it down this late in the year but at the least I would like to be well prepared for next year to prevent the spread of pythium on my lawn.
AHeritage G should be applied in the early stages of disease development to achieve optimal results.

August 29, 2013Larry from Montgomery, Al asked:
QDo you have a product for take all root rot fungus in St Augustine grass?
ATake All Root Rot is almost impossible to control. To try and control Take All Root Rot you can use Fungicides applied in early spring and fall such as Heritage (azoxystrobin), Banner Max (propiconazole), Cleary’s 3336 (thiophanate methyl).
