GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Olympus Fungicide is a broad spectrum contact and systemic fungicide. It is taken up via the stem and foliage and is translocated upwards and outwards to provide protection to new growth. Thorough coverage of the crop is necessary for best results.

Check the crop regularly for any symptoms of disease infection. Apply as soon as disease is present on the flag leaf or flag-2. Application beyond flag leaf emergence (ZGS39) may not provide any yield benefit, particularly under dry seasonal conditions.

 

MIXING

Olympus Fungicide is a suspension concentrate formulation.  Add the product to the half-filled spray tank while agitating. Continue to agitate while topping up the tank and during spraying.

 

APPLICATION

Ground Application

Apply in a water volume of between 50 and 100L/ha, using flat fan nozzles operating at around 50 cm above the top of the crop. Use the higher water volume in crops with heavier canopies.

Aerial Application

Apply with suitable aircraft set up and operated to apply fungicides to cereal crops in a minimum water volume of 20L/ha.

 

COMPATIBILITY

For information on compatibility please contact your local reseller or Cheminova representative.

 

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP

3

FUNGICIDE

Cheminova Olympus Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group C fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group C 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 C fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction of efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Cheminova Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.

 

RE-ENTRY PERIOD

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried.

 

CAUTION

Export of treated cereals

Growers should note that the Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for cereals treated with Olympus Fungicide. Additionally, some export markets have established MRLs different to those in Australia. If you are growing cereals for export, please check with Cheminova or your grain exporter for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using Olympus Fungicide.

 

LIVESTOCK DESTINED FOR EXPORT MARKETS

The grazing withholding period only applies to stock slaughtered for the domestic market. Some export markets apply different standards. To meet these standards, ensure that in addition to complying with the grazing withholding period, the Export Slaughter interval is observed before stock are sold or slaughtered.

 

EXPORT SLAUGHTER INTERVAL (ESI):

AFTER OBSERVING THE WITHHOLDING PERIOD FOR GRAZING OR CUTTING FOR STOCKFOOD, LIVESTOCK THAT HAVE BEEN GRAZED ON OR FED TREATED CROPS SHOULD BE PLACED ON CLEAN FEED FOR 3 DAYS PRIOR TO SLAUGHTER.

 

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Highly toxic to aquatic organisms. Do NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment which could be expected to cause spray drift onto adjacent crops, croplands, livestock, pastures, wetlands, waterbodies or watercourses. Do NOT apply Olympus Fungicide aerially if waterbodies, watercourses or wetlands are within 30 metres downwind of the application area. Do NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

 

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. 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 deliver empty packaging to an approved waste management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available bury the empty packaging 500 mm 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 regulation.  Do not burn empty containers or product.
