GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Fungicide Resistance Warning
Antracol is a member of the multi-site group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Antracol is a Group M3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group M3 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 this product and other Group M3 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 result from failure of this product to control resistant fungi.

Export of treated produce
Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for edible produce treated with Antracol. If you are growing edible produce for export, please check with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances before using Antracol.

Mixing
To the required quantity of Antracol add a small amount of water and stir to make a paste. Add further water and mix until a cream results. Pour this into water in spray vat while stirring or with agitators in motion.

Compatibility
Ensure that water is of suitable quality for mixing with agricultural pesticides. Poor quality water can cause physical incompatibility between some products which may result in crop damage in some circumstances.
Antracol is compatible with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides including Bayfidan® 250 EC, Dipterex® 500 SL, Folimat® 800, Lebaycid®, Morestan®, Nitofol®. Antracol is not compatible with lime sulphur and other alkaline materials. When mixing sprays, except when adding oil, add insecticides last. Do not mix concentrates together but add each to the spray tank separately. The compatibilities given are based on world wide experience and are considered correct. However, as changes in climatic conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays, we accept no responsibility for the behaviour of such mixtures.
