GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
BRAVO WEATHER STIK is a protectant fungicide only. BRAVO WEATHER STIK must be applied before diseases occur/become established to be highly effective. Use disease warning services or past history to determine timing of first spray. If diseases are already present, then an eradicant product should be used first and mixed with BRAVO WEATHER STIK.

Mixing
Invert container several times to ensure uniform mixture. Mix the required quantity of product with water in the spray tank with the agitator operating.

Application
Apply by high volume, low volume or through mister or aircraft spray equipment. Thorough uniform coverage is essential for effective disease control.
Suggested spray volumes per hectare for non tree and vine crops
High volume: 500 litres or more
Mister: 75 to 255 litres
Low volume: 200 litres or more Aerial application: 20 litres or more
Application in tree and vine crops
Dilute spraying: Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of runoff 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 runoff. Avoid excessive runoff. 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 for Use table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of runoff. 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 runoff) 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) 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:
Example Only
- Dilute spray volume as determined above: for example 1000 L/ha
- Your chosen concentrate spray volume: for example 500 L/ha
- The concentration factor in this example is: 2 x (ie 1000 L / 500 L = 2)
- If the dilute label rate is 210 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 2 x 210, that is 420 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.

Compatibility
BRAVO WEATHER STIK is compatible with wettable powder formulations of the most commonly used fungicides, insecticides and miticides. DO NOT combine with oil-based emulsifiable or flowable pesticides, unless prior experience has shown the combination to be physically compatible and non-injurious to your crop. This product should not be mixed with spraying oils or sprayed onto crops that have been sprayed with oil for at least 10 days after the oil spray. Oils should not be sprayed on crops treated with this product for at least 10 days after the last spray. Wetting agents have not improved performance. Under some conditions, certain surfactants may cause plant injury.

Fungicide Resistance Warning
For fungicide resistance management BRAVO WEATHER STIK Fungicide is a Group M5 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to BRAVO WEATHER STIK and other Group M5 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungi population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. The resistant fungi will not be controlled by BRAVO WEATHER STIK and other Group M5 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, Syngenta Crop Protection Pty. Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of BRAVO WEATHER STIK to control resistant fungi.
