DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Restraints:
DO NOT mix spraying oils or wetting agents with Cavalry Weatherguard.
For all stone fruit except Cherries, following additional restraints apply:
DO NOT use oils after bud-swell and during the season if Cavalry Weatherguard is to be used after shuck fall.
DO NOT tank mix Cavalry Weatherguard with EC formulations when spraying after shuck fall.
DO NOT exceed 3.2 L of Cavalry Weatherguard per hectare of crop.

RATE: This table shows rates for dilute spraying. For concentrate spraying refer to the Mixing/Application Section.

CRITICAL COMMENTS: For uses in this table: Apply by dilute or concentrate spraying equipment. Apply the same amount of product to the target crop whether applying this product by dilute or concentrate spraying methods. DO NOT use at rates greater than 5 times the dilute spraying rate.

WHP (days):
Dessert 7
Wine 14
Critical comments: Make the first application as soon as conditions favour the development of he disease. Apply at 7-14 day intervals particularly during wet weather and periods of rapid growth. For Bunch Rot, applications at early full bloom, two weeks later, at veraisson and two weeks prior to harvest.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Note: Cavalry Weatherguard is a protectant fungicide only. Therefore to achieve best results, Cavalry Weatherguard must be applied before diseases occur/become established. 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 Cavalry Weatherguard.

MIXING / APPLICATION
Slowly invert container several times to ensure uniform mixture.
Mix the required quantity of product with water in the spray tank with agitator operating. Apply in high volume, low volume or through mister or aircraft spray equipment. Thorough uniform coverage is essential for effective disease control and protection.
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: 3 x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, 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.

SUGGESTED SPRAY VOLUMES PER HECTARE
High Volume: 500 litres or more.
Mister: 75 to 255 litres.
Low Volume: 200 litres or more.

COMPATIBILITY
This product 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
CAVALRY Weatherguard Fungicide is a member of the multi-site activity group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management Cavalry Weatherguard Fungicide is a Group M5 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to Cavalry Weatherguard 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. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Cavalry Weatherguard 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, Adama Australia Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Cavalry Weatherguard to control resistant fungi.
