GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
FUNGICIDAL RESISTANCE WARNING
FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide is a Group 3 Fungicide. Some naturally occurring fungi resistant to FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide or any 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. The resistant fungi will not be controlled by FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide or 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, FMC Crop Protection Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide 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 FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide 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 to 3 leaves green and functioning through grain filling stage. With aircraft, as a guide apply 10 to 20L/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.

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 runoff. 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 100L 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 concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which provides 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 spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
EXAMPLE ONLY
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: for example 2000L/ha 2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: for example 500L/ha 3. The concentration factor in this example is: 4 x (i.e. 2000L/500L = 4) 4. If the dilute label rate is 25 mL/100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 4 x 25, that is 100 mL/100L of concentrate spray.
The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L 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
FMC Propiconazole 550 Fungicide is compatible with many commonly used orchard sprays which includes Ridomil Plus 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.

PRECAUTION Re-entry
Period DO NOT enter treated area until spray has dried.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT
Dangerous to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK
DO NOT graze treated turf or feed grass clipping from treated area to poultry or livestock.
