General Instructions

 

DO NOT APPLY MORE THAN 6 CONSECUTIVE SPRAYS PER SEASON.

 

NOTE: For cereals the flag 2 leaf is the 3rd last fully emerged leaf i.e. the second leaf below flag. Wheat Stripe Rust susceptible varieties apply when 10% leaves infected. Wheat Stripe Rust moderately susceptible varieties apply when 15 to 20% leaves infected.

 

Mixing

 

Shake well before use. Fill the spray tank and then add concentrate. Mix well.

 

Pineapples - Preplant dip:

Add the required amount of FMC Propiconazole 250 Fungicide to the dip and mix well. Avoid excessive contamination of the dip with organic matter.

 

Application

 

FMC Propiconazole 250 Fungicide may be applied by ground rig, high or low volume, or by air.

 

Cereals: May be applied by boom spray of aircraft. Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. The object of spraying is to control disease on the upper 2 to 3 leaves during grain filling. With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10 to 20 L/ha with the lower rate being used when applications are made with a cross wind of not less than 5 knots. Use the higher rates when applying to dense crops.

 

Apricots, Plums and other Stone fruit: Apply by high volume (dilute) sprayer or by concentrate sprayer.

 

Bananas: Apply by misting machine, air blast sprayer or aircraft. Use a minimum of 30L water if applying by air.

 

 

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 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 Directions for Use table for each 100L of water.

  • Spray to the point of run-off.

  • The required dilute spray volume will change and 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 volume.

  • Determine the 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 can then be calculated in the following way:

 

Example only

 

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

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

3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3 x (ie. 1500L / 500L = 3)

4. If the dilute label rate is 10mL/100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30mL/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.

 

Compatibility

 

FMC Propiconazole 250 may be mixed with any of one of the registered products containing; azinophosmethyl, chlorothalonil, diazinon, methomyl liquid, metalaxyl, propargite, parathion, dimethoate, copper oxychloride, mancozeb and zineb.

 

Mixtures with more than one of the above are not recommended.

 

Resistance Warning

 

FMC Propiconazole 250 Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 3 fungicide.

 

Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to FMC Propiconazole 250 Fungicide and other Group 3 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 FMC Propiconazole 250 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, FMC Australasia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of FMC Propiconazole 250 Fungicide to control resistant fungi.

 

Protection of wildlife, fish, crustaceans and environment

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

 

Safety Directions

 

Harmful if swallowed. Will damage the eyes. Will irritate the nose, throat and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale vapour. If product in eyes wash it out immediately with water. If product on skin immediately wash area with soap and water. Wash hands after use. When opening the container and preparing the product for use wear cotton overalls, buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, elbow-length PVC, nitrile or neoprene gloves, goggles and disposable fume mask covering mouth and nose. When using the prepared spray wear cotton overalls, buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, elbow-length PVC, nitrile or neoprene gloves and goggles. After each day’s use, wash gloves, goggles and contaminated clothing.

 

Storage & disposal

 

Store in the closed, original container in a locked well-ventilated area as cool as possible and away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and fertilisers. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to the 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 empty packaging 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.

 

Precautions

 

Re-entry Period

DO NOT enter treated area until spray has dried.
