8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A non systemic protectant fungicide with multiple sites of action.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Ensure thorough and even coverage.
Best results when the crop canopy is wet.
Apply before rain as spraying immediately after rain will not control infections that occurred during the rain event.
Repeat applications are required to protect new growth.
Used mixed product within a few hours as mancozeb has a half life of only 1-2 days in water.
For aerial and low volume ground applications spray when the canopy is wet.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Use a wetting agent on hard to wet, waxy or hairy species.
A bonding agent may be useful.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Adjust the dilution rate to suit the amount of carrier being applied.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Rinse with water plus wetting agent or detergent.
Physically clean deposits from strainers and other areas where deposits build up.
Rinse out sprayer with water at the end of each day.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

For groound spraying apply in at least 100 L/ha water.
For Aerial spraying apply in at least 30 L/ha water.
For high volume spraying the following carrier volumes are likely.
Vine crops - 200 - 1100 L/ha
Stone and Pome fruit - 1100 - 4000 L/ha
Citrus 4000 - 8000 L/ha.
For concentrate spraying adjust product dilution rates so an equivalent amount of active ingredient is applied as in high volume spraying.
For aerial application use 30-50 L/ha.

14. WEATHER:

Apply when weather conditions favour disease outbreak and continue until conditions improve.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

16. SOIL:

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

Don't use on Wilson Plums.
May be harmful to Typhlodromus pyri so avoid using in orchards where integrated pest management is used.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

No plantback periods specified.

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Multi site protective action. Non systemic. Protectant fungicide. Prevents new infections but doesn't cure existing infections.
Protective action rather than control.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

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

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S5
Summary: Practically non toxic by oral or skin exposure. It is a mild skin irritant and sensitiser and a mild to moderate eye irritant.
Details:
Poison schedule - S5
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - >5000 mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - >5000 mg/kg (rabbit). >10000 mg/kg (rat)
Skin - Repeated or prolonged contact may cause irritation. Some individuals may develop dermatitis. Sensitising.
Eye - May cause discomfort and irritation.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat). Inhalation of dust or mist may cause nose and throat irritation.
Mancozeb may be not mutagenic or weakly mutagenic on available evidence.
There is conflicting evidence from animal tests on the teratogenicity of mancozeb.
Mancozeb is probably not carcinogenic but one of its breakdown products (ETU) probably is.
Mancozeb inhalation levels of 55mg/m3 caused embryotoxic effects in rats at levels that were toxic to the dams.
It is not likely that mancozeb will produce reproductive effects in humans at normal exposure levels.
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - 0.6 mg/kg/day for two years.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) - 0.006 mg/kg/day.
Chronic effects - Impaired thyroid function has been shown in some studies with dietary intakes of >=2.5 mg/kg/day mancozeb.
ETU (ethylenethiourea) is a major toxicological concern as it can be produced in mancozeb breakdown, as a contaminant, from EDDC's used on stored produce and during cooking. ETU can cause goitre and ahs produced birth defects and cancer in test animals.
Mancozeb is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and almost completely excreted within 96 hours. ETU is major metabolite of toxicological significance and carbon disulfide is minor metabolite.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Prolonged exposure to products containing manganese may cause apathy, loss of balance and weakness. Advanced poisoning may show central nervous system disturbance.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Give plenty of water. Induce vomiting. Do NOT give alcohol. Contact a doctor.
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. See a doctor
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. Avoid giving alcohol as this may cause vomiting and shock.
Call Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26

25. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:

Safety goggles and face shield.
Elbow length PVC gloves.
Cotton overalls and washable hat.
Boots.
