For control of certain diseases of stone fruit, pome fruit and vines as specified in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRAINTS
DO NOT apply if it is likely to rain before spray is dry.
DO NOT apply to wet crops.
Do NOT apply DELAN under slow drying conditions as an increase in fruit russet may occur.

In the following table, all rates are given for dilute spraying. For concentrate spraying, refer to the Mixing/Application section.
CRITICAL COMMENTS: For all uses in this table: Apply by dilute or concentrate spraying equipment. Apply the same total amount of product to the target crop, whether applying this product by dilute or concentrate spraying methods.

APPLES
On apples intended for cold store, do NOT apply later than 42 days from harvest. This does not apply to apples intended for Controlled Atmosphere storage. Do NOT apply during blossoming, in Qld only.

Disease: Black spot/apple scab
State: All states
Rate: 18g/100 L water
Withholding Period: 21 days (harvest)
Critical Comments: Apply at 7 to 10 day intervals over the primary infection period from green tip to petal fall and continue at 10 to 14 day intervals thereafter while conditions permit infection.
The product can also be used as a protectant addition to the DMI (Group C) fungicides.

Disease: Bitter rot (Glomerella cingulate)
State: All states 
Rate: 18g/100 L water 
Withholding Period: 21 days (harvest) 
Critical Comments: Apply at 14 to 21 day intervals from petal fall to 21 days before harvest, using the shorter interval during periods of high humidity. Applications in the later half of the season will assist in the control of post harvest development of bitter rot. A program of sprays for black spot control in apples will also provide control of bitter rot.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS 
FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP M9 FUNIGICIDE
DELAN is a member of the Multi-site Activity Group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management, DELAN is a Group M9 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to DELAN may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if this fungicide is used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by DELAN, 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 DELAN to control resistant fungi.

MIXING
With the agitation system operating, pour the measured volume of DELAN 700 WG Fungicide slowly into the required volume of water in the spray vat. Mix thoroughly and then add any other compatible spray materials. Sprays containing DELAN 700 WG Fungicide should be used within 3 hours of preparation and they should be agitated continuously during this period.

WETTING AGENTS
The addition of a non-ionic wetting agent is required when DELAN 700 WG Fungicide is being applied to stone fruit. Where a wetting agent is not required for DELAN 700 WG Fungicide, one may be added if required for other pesticides, provided it is non-ionic.

APPLICATION
Dilute Spraying
- Use a sprayer designed to apply high spray volumes, 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 spray solution to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
- The required spray volume to achieve point of run off may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, or from industry guidelines or other 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 to achieve point of run off 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 spray 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 spray 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:
EXAMPLE ONLY
- Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
- Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
- The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
- If the dilute label rate is 20 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 20 (that is 60 mL of product per 100 L water for 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.

GRAPE VINES
APPLICATION BY GROUND EQUIPMENT.
When applying as a dilute spray, apply sufficient volume to wet all leaf surfaces to the point of runoff.
Apply as a medium to fine spray preferably using cone nozzles. Air-blast sprayers are recommended for application to vines with very dense foliage.
APPLICATION BY AIRCRAFT.
Apply in a minimum of 20 litres of water per hectare. May be applied with hydraulic nozzles or rotary atomizers operated to produce droplets with a V.M.D. of around 150 microns.
Avoid application in calm or very windy conditions or when the temperature and humidity cause rapid drying.

COMPATIBILITY
DELAN 700 WG Fungicide is compatible with any one of the following: Bayfidan+ 250EC, Bogard+ 100 WG, chlorpyrifos WP, Folidol+ M500, Folimat+ 800, Gusathion+ 350, Lebaycid+, Metasystox+ (i), Nitofol+, NUDRIN, Nustar+ DF, Systhane+ WP, Topas+ 100 EC, TORQUE, and wettable sulphur.
DELAN 700 WG Fungicide should NOT be mixed with more than one other material, other than non-ionic wetting agent.
DELAN 700 WG Fungicide is incompatible with Agridex+, Tokuthion+, chlorpyrifos EC, iprodione (Rovral+), vinclozolin (Ronilan+) and winter or summer oils, except where mentioned under stone fruit. It is also incompatible with alkaline materials such as lime sulphur, lime and Bordeaux mixture. Under certain conditions it is incompatible with spraying oils and some other liquid formulations (see below).
Spraying Oils: DELAN 700 WG Fungicide should only be applied with Winter or Summer oils at the dormant or bud burst stages. At other times it should not be applied with these materials or before or after oil cover sprays.
Liquid Formulations: DELAN 700 WG Fungicide should not be applied to pome fruit or Santa Rosa or Wilson plums mixed with liquid formulations liable to cause ring spot. However it can be mixed with the following for application to other stone fruit: Folidol M500, Lebaycid and Metasystox (i).

CROP SAFETY
If climatic conditions at the time of application result in slow drying of the spray deposit, some varieties of fruit may show minor skin russeting.
