    I have several customers who tried running Banner through the P'Green based on the logic that being an EC it would spray properly. It did spray. But at very low volume, it doesn't control disease very well.

    It may work if you do it like we do manage for nutsedge. We mix it and spray it on full volume but at low ground speed.

    That Eagle just seems to be a great all around fungicide. I've had great luck with it many of times (never sprayed with PG). My problem is, is that the stuff lasts me so long, I'll probably have this bottle for years.

    To increase coverage use larger nozzles or narrow your pattern. Most fungicides require 20 plus gals/acres to work. Some fungicides are not systemic and coverage matters.
