Agitate if mixture has been lest standing.
Water may be added provided ratio or product:water is less than 1:4 and for cereals the total volume of product plus water is less than 600 mL/100 kg seed.

14. WEATHER:

In very hot weather the addition of water may be desirable to help even distribution on seed.
In moist humid weather ensure the final seed moisture content after treatment is below 15%.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

Not applicable

16. SOIL:

This product is less affected by soil temperatures than some other seed treatments that don't contain carboxin.

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

Not applicable

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Carboxin is a group G, oxathiin, systemic fungicide with protective and curative action. It is also a growth regulant that increases coleoptile length of cereal seedlings.
Thiram is a broad spectrum surface contact fungicide with multi site action.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.
