4. ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Amisulbrom 32g/L plus Copper sulphate 180 g/L

5. COST: $82.70 per L or kg.

6. CHEMICAL GROUP: 21,M1.

7. RELATED PESTICIDES:

Amisulbrom 32g/L plus Copper sulphate 180 g/L

8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

An agricultural fungicide for the control of downy mildew in grapes and brassicas and white blister rust in brassicas.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Applied as a dilute spray in most crops to reduce the risk of foliar damage due to salt burn.
Used within 3 hours of mixing and keep agitated.
Avoid conditions where slow or rapid drying of the spray occurs.
Best results if applied after rain before disease spores germinate.
Do not apply during the hottest part of the day when temperatures exceed 35°C.
Do not apply to copper-shy crops or cultivars.
Do not apply if it is likely to rain before the spray is dry.
Do not apply to wet crops.
Do not use in spray solutions pH less than 6.5.
Allow a 10m downwind buffer for aquatic areas.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Wetting agents and bonding agents are often used for Brassica crops.

11. EQUIPMENT:

High volume sprayers usually used, Concentrate sprayers for some crops.
Thorough coverage is essential for good disease control.
Medium spray quality suggested on the label to reduce drift.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Water plus wetting agent or detergent.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Spraying to runoff preferred for grapes.
More than 250 L/ha water recommended for brassica crops.
250 L/ha minimum for booms and ground applications. Normally 400-1200 L/ha used to obtain good coverage with minimal burning.

14. WEATHER:

Best results in fine weather. Use a bonding agent if rainy weather expected later.
Avoid spraying during inversion conditions to reduce te risk of drift.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

10-20 minutes

16. SOIL:

No significant effects.

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

May cause salt burn especially in hot fast drying conditions.

18. WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

Brassica vegetables; Not required
Grapevines: do not havest for 28 days.
Brassica vegetables; Not required
Grapevines: do not havest for 28 days.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Stomach pains if quantities are swallowed.
Possible symptoms of exposure of the concentrate include: vomiting, stomach pains, symptoms attributed to the central nervous system and kidneys, hemolytic crisis accompanied by damage in the liver and brain.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Do NOT induce vomiting. See a doctor.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. See a doctor if symptoms persist.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. No specific antidote.
Copper salts may be corrosive to the oesophagus. Do NOT induce vomiting. If spontaneous vomiting has occurred or is suspected, gastric intubation is contraindicated. In cases of severe intoxication, consider chelation therapy with dimercaprol (BAL).
Symptoms of stomach pains, symptoms attributed to the CNS and kidney, haemolytic crisis accompanied by damage in the liver and brain.
