DO NOT use concentration factors exceeding 4X when applying through low volume application
equipment, except when applying SMART AZ 250 FUNGICIDE by air. In these cases adequate
coverage of all plant surfaces is still required to achieve control of diseases.
Tree Crops and Vines
Dilute spraying: Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water 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 water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid
excessive run-off. The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes,
using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice. Add the amount of
product specified in the Directions of Use table for each 100L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set-up and operation may also need to
be changed, as the crop grows.
Concentrate spraying: Use a sprayer designed and set-up for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer
which applies water 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 water 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 1000 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: for example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 2 x (ie 1000 L ÷ 500 L = 2)
4. If the dilute label rate is 80 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 2 x 80; that is 160 mL/100
L of concentrate spray.
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. For further information on concentrate spraying, users
are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and
follow industry Best Practices.
Half-fill the spray tank with clean water and start agitation. Shake the closed SMART AZ 250
FUNGICIDE container. Whilst filling the remainder of the spray tank add the required amount of
SMART AZ 250 FUNGICIDE, adding any tank-mix products last. Maintain agitation until spraying is
complete. DO NOT leave the spray mix in the sprayer overnight.
