General Instructions

 

Resistance Management

 

Resistant strains of fungi can develop to this and other fungicides. To reduce the possibility of this occurrence, and where alternatives are available, rotate to use products with as many different modes of action as possible. Where specific resistance management strategies are established these are detailed in the CRITICAL COMMENTS.

 

Export Of Treated Produce

Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances may not exist in all markets for produce treated with Iprodione 250. If you are growing produce for export, please check with Cheminova for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using Iprodione 250.

 

Mixing

 

Note: Iprodione 250 may be unstable in conditions where the pH is 7 or higher. It is therefore essential to check the pH of the spray solution before adding Iprodione 250. A suitable registered buffering agent may have to be added to bring the pH down below 7.

 

Shake well before use. Add half the required water volume to the spray tank or vat with the agitation mechanism operating. Add the required volume of this product and then add additional water to the volume required.

 

Application

 

Good disease control requires even, thorough coverage of the target area.

 

Application should be made using appropriate spray equipment and sufficient water to provide adequate penetration and coverage. Equipment settings and water volume may need to vary, depending on the growth stage of the crop.

High pressure, prolonged and vigorous agitation particularly in conjunction with a high concentration of Iprodione Liquid in the spray tank may reduce the suspension properties of Iprodione Liquid, resulting in a scum forming on the surface or sediment forming on the filters. If the agitation system cannot be adjusted, or concentration reduced to overcome this problem it is recommended that Iprodione Liquid be used, where registered.

 

Special Instructions for Tree Crops/Vines

 

Dilute Spraying

  • Use a sprayer designed to apply high spray volumes, up to the point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed.
  • Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient spray solution to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
  • The required spray volume to achieve point of run off may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, or from industry guidelines or other expert advice.
  • Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
  • The required dilute spray volume to achieve point of run off will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.

Concentrate Spraying

  • Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies spray volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the crop being sprayed.
  • Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen spray volume.
  • Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
  • The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way.

EXAMPLE ONLY

 

1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha

 

2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha

 

3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)

 

4. If the dilute label rate is 10mL/100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3x10, that is 30 mL of product per 100 L water for concentrate spraying.

 

- The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L of water, and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.

 

- For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

 

Compatibility

This product may be combined with:

Fosetyl 800 WG (see NOTE below), azinphos-methyl, benomyl, Carbaryl 500 Flowable, chlorfenvinphos, chlorpyrifos 500 g/L EC, demeton-S-methyl, Mancozeb 750 WDG, endosulfan, fenarimol, Dicofol 480 EC, Kocide (Warning: do not mix Iprodione Liquid with kocide for use on potatoes), thiodicarb 375, maldison 500, metalaxyl, methomyl methamidophos, methyl parathion, pirimicarb, propargite, triadimenol.

 

When tank mixing products the order of mixing is determined by formulation type. As a guide the following mixing sequence is recommended:

1. Wettable powders

2. Suspension concentrates (e.g. Iprodione 250)

3. Water Dispersible Granules

4. Suspo-emulsions

5. Soluble powders

6. Solutions

7. Emulsifiable concentrates

8. Soluble concentrates

9. Wetting agents and oils

 

With any mixture, thoroughly agitate immediately before applying. It is not recommended to mix this product with more than one of the above chemicals in the tank. DO NOT tank mix this product with fertilisers.

 

NOTE: *Mixing Iprodione 250 with Fosetyl 800 WG may result in some settling out.

 

As formulations of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Cheminova, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

 

Turf Nutrition

This product acts very rapidly and where turf is of low nutritional status, a slight yellowing may be seen. This will be corrected by the application of a nitrogenous fertiliser. Where possible, it is recommended that the fertiliser program should precede fungicide application.

 

Resistance Warning

 

Cheminova Iprodione Liquid 250 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.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

Toxic to aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

 

Protection of crop, native and other non-target plants

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, which could be expected to cause spray drift onto adjacent crops, croplands, pastures, livestock, natural or impounded lakes, dams or other waterways.

 

Safety Directions

 

Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and goggles. If product on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water.

 

Storage

Keep out of reach of children. Store in the closed, original container in a cool, secure, well-ventilated area. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Protect from frost.

 

Disposal

5L & 20L container only - Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.

 

60L container only - Empty container by pumping through the dry-break connection system. Do not attempt to unscrew the valve or breach the locked filling point. Do not contaminate the container with water or other foreign material. Ensure that the coupler, pump, meter and hoses are disconnected, triple rinsed with clean water and drained after each use. Contact point of purchase to arrange return or collection of empty containers. This container remains the property of Cheminova.
