For the control of powdery mildew in field grown cucurbits.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT apply by air.
For use in field grown cucurbits only. DO NOT apply to glasshouse/tunnel house grown cucurbit crops. DO NOT apply more than 4 applications of COLLISS per paddock per year.
For resistance management, DO NOT apply more than 2 applications of COLLISS per crop.
MANDATORY NO-SPRAY ZONES
DO NOT apply if there are aquatic and wetland areas including aquacultural ponds, surface stream and rivers within 10 metres downwind from the application area.
Disease: Powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca fuliginea)
Rate: 250 – 500 mL/ha
Critical Comments: Apply two consecutive COLLISS spray applications 7 to 10 days apart commencing before powdery mildew becomes established.
Use the higher rate and the shorter spray interval when weather conditions favour disease development.
Applications beginning at early fruit formation are recommended.
COLLISS fungicide should only be applied as a protectant spray.
DO NOT apply to crops where powdery mildew is already present.
This use is subject to a CropLife Australia fungicide resistance management strategy.
For resistance management, DO NOT apply more than two applications of COLLISS per crop.
Refer to the Application directions below for information on the use of Du Wett Low Volume Application Spreader with COLLISS fungicide.
NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.
Cucurbits: DO NOT HARVEST FOR 7 DAYS AFTER APPLICATION.
To ensure even mixing, half-fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required amount of product.
If required, add compatible products and agitate thoroughly, then add the remainder of the water. Agitate again before spraying commences.
Apply by boom equipment using spray volumes between 250 to 500 L/ha and nozzles designed to deliver droplets of medium spray quality according to the ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles. Du-Wett Low Volume Application Spreader may assist the performance of COLLISS at all spray volumes but is especially recommended when reduced water volumes are used.
EXPORT OF TREATED CROPS
Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for crops treated with COLLISS Fungicide. If you are growing crops for export, please check with BASF Australia Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using COLLISS.
For information on compatibility please contact your local industry representative.
FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
GROUP 7 11 FUNIGICIDE
COLLISS Fungicide is a combination of an Oxathiin and a Strobilurin fungicide. For fungicide resistance management COLLISS is both a Group 7 and a Group 11 fungicide.
Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to COLLISS and other Group 7 and/or Group 11 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 COLLISS and other Group 7 and/or Group 11 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, BASF Australia Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of COLLISS to control resistant fungi.
