For use in all States when appropriate for the crop and/or disease.

Manzate DF fungicide is a protectant fungicide for the control of certain fungus diseases in many crops. It affects the germination of spores by inhibiting the respiration process (multi-site action on several enzymes). For best results, the product should be applied as a regular spray program and is only effective when applied preventively before infection. When applied preventively, the potential for resistance is very low. Thorough coverage of the treated crop is essential.

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 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.
- Always apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of runoff, otherwise underdosing will occur and disease control may be inadequate.
Concentrate Spraying
- Use a sprayer designed and set up for 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 spraying 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 times (i.e. 1500 L divided by 500 L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 150 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 150, that is, 450 g/100 L of concentrate spray.
- 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.
The product may be applied by agricultural aircraft. Use at least 30 to 50 L of spray solution per hectare. For Bananas use a total spray volume of 30 to 35 L/ha.
The product treatments should begin prior to disease infection and continue until the threat of disease has passed. Repeat applications are necessary to protect new plant growth. Where two rates of application and/or two time intervals are recommended use the higher use rate and/or shorter time interval when weather conditions favour disease development.
Slowly place into spray tank as it is being filled, or thoroughly premix in a nurse tank for concentrate or aircraft sprayers. Add other co-applied fungicides, insecticides, surfactants etc after Manzate DF fungicide has been placed into suspension. Maintain sufficient agitation during mixing and spraying to prevent the product settling out and to ensure a uniform spray mixture. Rinse out spray-tank, pumps and nozzles at the end of the day. When preparing spray solutions for use in a hand sprayer, pre-mix as a slurry in a small container, and then add to sprayer containing one-third to half the desired volume of water.
