8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A systemic fungicide applied as a seed dressing.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Apply neat or mixed with water using equipment that provides even distribution of product on the seed. Agitate if left standing for more than 5 hours.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None required.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Use equipment suitable for flowable products with an adjustable output.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Rinse with water immediately after use.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Nil or less than 1.5 L water per tonne of seed.

14. WEATHER:

15. RAINFASTNESS:

16. SOIL:

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

Use on sound seed. Sow seed in the same season as it is treated.
May shorten coleoptile length of Canola seedlings causing emergence problems in crusting soils or where seed is plant more than 20 mm deep.
If growing produce for export then check import tolerances with the manufacturer.

18. WITHHOLDING PERIODS:

Canola: Cutting and grazing - 8 weeks. Do not cut for stockfeed or graze plants grown from treated seed for 8 weeks after planting.
Wheat: Cutting and grazing - 12 weeks. Do not cut for stockfeed or graze plants grown from treated seed for 12 weeks after planting.
Canola: Cutting and grazing - 8 weeks. Do not cut for stockfeed or graze plants grown from treated seed for 8 weeks after planting.
Wheat: Cutting and grazing - 12 weeks. Do not cut for stockfeed or graze plants grown from treated seed for 12 weeks after planting.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

Nil.

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Quinazolinine based triazole fungicide. Low water solubility allows uptake over a long period which provides extended control. Water based flowable formulation.
Inhibits demethylase enzyme which is involved in sterol synthesis in susceptible fungi.
Contact, residual, disinfectant and preventative action.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some strains of fungi may have or develop resistance.
