GROUP 33 FUNGICIDE
For the prevention and control of phytophthora rots in apples, avocados, ornamentals, peaches and pineapples as specified in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE Table.
Fungicide Resistance Warning
For fungicide resistance management Aliette WG is a Group 33 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Aliette WG and other Group 33 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Aliette WG and other Group 33 fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Aliette WG to control resistant fungi.
Export of Treated Produce
Growers should note that suitable MRLs or import tolerances may not be established in all markets for produce treated with Aliette WG Systemic Fungicide. If you are growing produce for export, please check with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using Aliette WG Systemic Fungicide.
Fill the spray tank to at least half the desired amount with clean water and commence agitation. Add the required quantity of Aliette WG directly to the water and complete filling to the final volume. Continue agitation. DO NOT make a slurry or paste prior to adding to the tank.
Good disease control requires even, thorough coverage of the target area. Application should be made using appropriate spray equipment and sufficient water to provide adequate penetration and coverage. Equipment settings and water volume may need to vary, depending on the growth stage of the crop.
Special Instructions for Tree Crops
- Use a sprayer designed to apply high spray volumes, up to the point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed.
- Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient spray volume to
cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
- The required spray volume to achieve point of run-off may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, or from industry guidelines or other expert advice.
- Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
- The required dilute spray volume to achieve point of run-off will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.
Concentrate Spraying (Apples and Peaches (foliar sprays) only)
- Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies spray volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the crop being sprayed.
- Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen spray volume.
- Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
- The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
4. As the dilute label rate is 250 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 250, that is 750 g of product per 100 L
water for concentrate spraying.
- The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows.
- Do not use a concentrate rate greater than that specified in the Critical Comments.
- For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
Aliette WG has been used on a wide range of ornamental plant species without damage. However, some species and varieties are particularly sensitive to chemical products. It is advisable to treat only a small number of plants first, in order to determine their reaction to the product, before large scale use.
Under some conditions, mixtures of Aliette with foliar fertilisers may cause fruit russeting. Contact Bayer CropScience for further information on mixing with foliar fertilisers.
This product may be combined in the spray tank with: Bugmaster® Flo, chlorpyrifos, diazinon 800, Thiodan® EC, Kelthane® EC, Marlin®, maldison 500 and methamidophos.
Mixing Aliette WG with Dithane® DF, Dithane M45, Rovral® Aquaflo or Rovral Liquid may result in some settling out. With any mixture, constantly agitate prior to and during application. It is not recommended to mix this product with more than one of the above pesticides in the tank. Always test mixtures on a small number of plants before large scale use. As formulations of other manufacturer's products are beyond the control of Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT use as an alternative to steam sterilisation of potting soils used in nurseries.
Disease: Collar Rot (Phytophthora cactorum)
State: NSW, Vic, Tas, SA, WA only
Method of application: Foliar Spray
Dilute spraying: 250 g/100 L water
Concentrate spraying: Refer to the Application section in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
14 days (Apples)
Not required (Peaches)
Critical comments: Apply two foliar sprays per season. Apply the first spray in early spring when trees are in full leaf. Apply the second spray 12 weeks later when the spring growth flush has matured.
Apply by dilute or concentrate spraying equipment. Apply the same total amount of product to the target crop whether applying this product by dilute or concentrate spraying methods.
For concentrate spraying do not apply more than 750 g/100 L (i.e. at a concentration factor greater than 3 X).
Method of application: Soil Drench
Rate: 90 g/100 L water
WHP: 14 days (Apples)
Not required (Peaches)
Critical comments: This treatment should be used for very diseased trees. Such trees have inadequate leaf area for a foliar spray to be effective. Apply approximately 10 L water per tree.
Disease: Phytophthora Root Rot (Phytophthora cinnamomi)
State: Qld, NSW, Vic, SA, WA only
Method of application: Foliar Spray
Rate: Dilute spraying: 370 g/100 L water or 55 g/15 L knap-sack sprayer
WHP: 1 day
Critical comments: For protection of trees not showing above ground symptoms of root rot. Apply 10-15 L per mature tree during the spring flush and again at intervals of 6 weeks until autumn. Apply lower volume to younger trees. Add a non-ionic wetting agent according to its label directions. Excessive use of wetting agent may result in some leaf burn.
Note: Concentrate spraying is not appropriate for this use.
Disease: Heart Rot (Phytophthora cinnamomi); Root Rot (Phytophthora nicotinanae var. parasitica)
State: Qld, NSW, WA only

Rate: 4.6 kg/ha
WHP: 7 days
Critical comments: Apply as a soil drench along the plant row immediately after planting and then as a foliar spray at 6 week intervals from late summer to early winter.
First Treatment: Hand drenching is recommended.
Subsequent Treatments: Use 2000 L/ha for young plants increasing to 5000 L/ha for large plants.
