Triadimefon 125g/L or 500g/kg
8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
An agricultural fungicide from the DMI group and classified as a Group C fungicide for resistance management. It is used for a range of root and leaf diseases and applied as a foliar spray or on fertilizer.
9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:
Applied as an in furrow treatment on fertiliser or as an overall post emergence spray.
Do not mix seed with treated fertiliser for in furrow treatments.
Allow treated fertiliser to dry before use.
When mixed with water, use mixed solution within 24 hours. It degrades in water with a half life of 1-4 days.
10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:
Add a wetting agent for post emergent sprays.
Boom or aircraft for post emergence applications. Misters are not likely to give adequate coverage in most situations.
For fertiliser application, evenly spraying on granulated fertiliser then mixing by passing through an auger is usually adequate.
12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:
Triple rinse with water and wetting agent.
13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:
Mix the required amount of fungicide with the amount of fertiliser to be applied per hectare. Fungicide may be diluted with water up to 600 ml per 100 kg fertiliser to aid mixing.
Spray mix evenly on granulated fertiliser and mechanically mix or pass through an auger. Problems may be experienced with high N or dusty fertilisers.
For post emergence applications apply by boom in 100-150 L/ha water by boom or a minimum of 15 L/ha by aircraft. Lower water volumes down to 50 L/ha by boom have been used successfully providing good coverage and penetration of the canopy is achieved. Use finer droplets and smaller nozzles to decrease volume rather than faster speeds.
Apply post emergence treatments in fine conditions.
17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:
Don't mix treated fertiliser with crop seed. At high rates seedling vigour may be reduced.
18. WITHHOLDING PERIODS:
Canola: In furrow treatments - Cutting & grazing - 4 weeks after sowing.
Wheat: In furrow treatments - Cutting & grazing - 4 weeks after sowing.
19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:
20. MODE OF ACTION:
DMI mode of action. Inhibits ergosterol synthesis causing fungal cell wall collapse and reduced hyphal growth.
Contact and systemic. It has very little downward movement in plants so for many uses it is applied below the seed on fertilizer to protect the roots and shoots above the point where it is absorbed from the fertilizer.
Protective and eradicant action.
Applied as a foliar spray or on fertilizer.
At 500 mL/ha it controls Wheat Stripe Rust for about 14 days.
At 500 mL/ha it controls Wheat Leaf Rust for about 21 days
21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:
Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.

If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Keep at rest until fully recovered. Seek medical advice if effects persist.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
