General Instructions

 

Check the crop carefully and regularly. Spray only if there is sufficient time in the season for the rust to develop to a level on the variety in question when it will cause significant yield loss.

 

Foliar diseases on cereal crops

Do not apply to cereal crops more than once per season at the high rate. Treatment will give approximately three weeks disease suppression. Economic responses may not be gained by spraying crops past flowering stage. The effects of fungicide application will not be clearly seen for 7 to 10 days after application.

 

Spray timings for stripe rust control Obtain advisory literature from Department of Agriculture for classification of resistant and susceptible varieties. The following spray program is suggested:

 

Seedling infections: When approximately 20 out of 100 leaves show first signs of infection during tillering to jointing, apply a spray within one week.

 

Adult infections - susceptible varieties: When approximately 10 out of 100 leaves show first sign of infection, apply a spray within one week. Do not delay.

 

Adult infections - moderately susceptible varieties: When approximately 15 to 20 leaves out of 100 leaves show first sign of infection, apply a spray within one week. Do not delay.

 

Adult infections - moderately resistant and resistant varieties: Monitor carefully. If rust appears and spreads, spray within one week.

 

Application

 

Aircraft should fly as low as possible under the prevailing conditions to minimise drift.

 

Fungicide Resistance Warning

 

Impact Topguard Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Impact Topguard Fungicide is a Group 3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Impact Topguard Fungicide and other Group 3 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungi population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Impact Topguard Fungicide or other Group 3 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, Ospray Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Impact Topguard Fungicide to control resistant fungi. Resistance should not be assumed without first reviewing the method of application, the coverage and the timing of application.

 

Restraints

DO NOT use open mixing and loading systems for aerial application.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment
