How do I rid my Sego of this white residue? Have tried Dawn mixed with a antifungal.

Hi Islandplanter, Welcome! from me too!
It will help identify the problem if you can upload a photo of your Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta)

I wonder if it could be powdery mildew or mold of some sort, or possibly scale insects. For comparison, here are a couple of links with photos and information: http://extentopubs.tamu.edu/eee_00038.html
