General Instructions


Lupins only: This product will reduce rhizobium inoculum levels on inoculated seed and should only be used on seed to be sown in ground where existing soil inoculum levels will provide adequate nodulation. Spray inoculation is not recommended. This product should be used as part of an integrated disease management strategy, particularly in areas with high disease pressure.


Where possible, the following disease management practices should be used in conjunction with Cheminova Cataclysmic 250 Seed Dressing Fungicide:

  • Stubble Retention
  • Direct Drilling
  • Correct Seeding Depth
  • Correct Rotations
  • Clean Seed Source
  • Correct Seeding Rate
  • Avoid Late sowing


Fungicide Resistance Warning


Cheminova Cataclysmic 250 Seed Dressing Fungicide is a member of the dicarboximide group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group B fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group B fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product or other Group B fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.




Shake the container well before using. Add the required volume of Cheminova Cataclysmic 250 Seed Dressing Fungicide to the water whilst agitating.




Lupins only: Slowly add the mixture to the seed and mix thoroughly ensuring thorough coverage of the seed.


Potatoes only: Ensure good coverage of seed material and planting furrow. This can be achieved by applying Cheminova Cataclysmic 250 Seed Dressing Fungicide as a fine spray to the seed at the time of planting using spray equipment mounted on the planter, and nozzles located at three points on each planter row to ensure uniform coating of the seed.


A minimum water volume of 80 L/tonne should be used.


Further information can be obtained from an Cheminova representative.
