WARNING

Azaka Fungicide is extremely phytotoxic to certain apple varieties.

AVOID SPRAY DRIFT. Extreme care must be used to prevent injury to apple trees.

DO NOT spray when conditions favour drift beyond the area intended for application. Conditions that may contribute to drift include thermal inversions, excessive wind speed, certain sprayer nozzle/pressure combinations, small spray droplet size etc.

DO NOT use spray equipment that may have been previously used to apply Azaka Fungicide to spray apple trees. Even trace amounts can cause unacceptable phytotoxicity.

 

 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

 

 Azaka Fungicide is a member of the Strobilurin and related products group of fungicides.  For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 11 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group 11 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 K 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.

 

APPLICATION

DO NOT use concentration factors exceeding 4X when applying through low volume application equipment, except when applying Azaka Fungicide by air. In these cases adequate coverage of all plant surfaces is still required to achieve control of diseases.

Tree Crops and Vines

Dilute spraying: Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water 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 water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off. The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice. Add the amount of product specified in the Direction for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off. The required dilute spray volume 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 water 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 water 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 1000 L/ha

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

3.     The concentration factor in this example is: 

 2 x (ie 1000L ÷ 500L = 2)

4.   If the dilute label rate is 80mL/100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 2 x 80, that is 160mL/100L of concentrate spray.

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.

 

MIXING

Half-fill the spray tank with clean water and start agitation. Shake the closed Azaka Fungicide container. Whilst filling the remainder of the spray tank add the required amount of Azaka Fungicide, adding any tank mix products last. Maintain agitation until spraying is complete. DO NOT leave the spray mix in the sprayer overnight.

  

COMPATIBILITY/TANK MIXING

Azaka Fungicide may be mixed in the spray vat with any one of the following products: permethrin, chlorothalonil, captan WG, copper hydroxide, alpha-cypermethrin 100, Bacillus thuringiensis, Cyhella®, thiodicarb, procymidone, bifenthrin.

A mixture of Azaka with more than 1 of these products or with any other product may be ineffective or may cause serious damage. The use of such a mixture is not recommended and would therefore be entirely at the user’s risk.

If tank mixes are to be used observe all directions, precautions and limitations on all products to be used. As formulations of other manufacturer’s products are beyond the control of Cheminova, and water quality varies with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Note: On some tomato varieties, tank mixtures of Azaka and Cyren® or dicofol have been found to be phytotoxic.

DO NOT tank mix these products with Azaka.

On some grape varieties, tank mixtures of Azaka  and Cyren 500 EC have been found to be phytotoxic.

DO NOT tank mix Azaka with Cyren for use in grapes.

 

EXPORT OF TREATED PRODUCE

Grapes

While Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) have been set in many major wine export destinations, some export destinations have not finalized MRL applications. For further information regarding export tolerances please contact your winery, Cheminova representative or the Australian Wine Research Institute.

Other Crops

While Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) have been set in many major export destination, it should be noted that MRLs or import tolerances may not be established in all export destinations. For further information regarding export tolerances please contact your export organization or Cheminova representative.

 

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

HIGHLY TOXIC TO AQUATIC LIFE. DO NOT contaminate dams, waterways or drains with the chemical or used containers.

DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray drift on adjacent areas, particularly wetlands, waterbodies or watercourses.

 

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

This container can be recycled if it is clean, dry, free of visible residues and has the drumMUSTER logo visible. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal.  Dispose of rinsate by adding it to the spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemical on site.  Wash outside of the container and the cap. Store cleaned container in a sheltered place with cap removed. It will then be acceptable for recycling at any drumMUSTER collection point or similar container management program site. The cap should not be replaced but may be taken separately.

If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging for appropriate disposal to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available, bury the empty packaging 500mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant  Local, State or Territory government regulations. Do not burn empty containers or product.

 

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Will irritate the eyes. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands after use.

When opening the container and preparing spray wear cotton overalls, buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and elbow-length PVC gloves. After each day’s use, wash gloves and contaminated clothing.

 

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126.
