GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Bumper® 625 ec Fungicide contains Propiconazole, a systemic foliar fungicide with protective and curative action. Bumper 625 ec acts as an ergosterol biosynthesis inhibitor. Bumper 625 ec mixes readily with water. Read Directions for Use and Safety Directions before opening or using this product.

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
Bumper 625 ec Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Bumper 625 ec is a Group 3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Bumper 625 ec and other Group 3 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. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Bumper 625 ec and other Group 3 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, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Bumper 625 ec to control resistant fungi.

MIXING
Add the required amount directly to the spray tank and mix well.
Pineapples – Preplant dip: Add the required amount of Bumper directly to the dip and mix well. Avoid excessive contamination of the dip with organic matter.

APPLICATION
Cereals: May be applied by boom spray or aircraft. Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. The object of spraying is to keep the upper 2-3 leaves green and functioning through grain filling stage. With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10-20 L/ha with the lower rate being used when applications are made with a cross wind of not less than 5 knots. Use the higher rates when applying to dense crops.
Wheat - Stripe Rust
- susceptible varieties
- apply when 10% leaves infected.
Wheat - Stripe Rust
- moderately susceptible varieties
- apply when 15-20% leaves infected.
Apricots, Plums and other Stone Fruit: Apply by high volume (dilute) sprayer or by concentrate sprayer.
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 For Use table for each 100 L 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 the 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 can then be calculated in the following way:
EXAMPLE ONLY
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:
3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of 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. For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

COMPATIBILITY
Bumper 625 ec is compatible with many commonly used orchard sprays which includes Axiom® Plus and some formulations of azinphos methyl, demeton-s-methyl, diazinon, methomyl liquid, propargite, parathion, dimethoate, copper oxychloride, mancozeb, zineb and chlorothalonil. Mixtures with more than one of the above are not recommended.
