GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT apply more than 6 sprays per season.
NOTE: For cereals, the flag-2 leaf is the 3rd last fully emerged leaf, i.e. the second leaf below flag.
Wheat - Stripe rust - susceptible varieties - apply when 10% leaves infected.
Wheat - Stripe rust - moderately susceptible varieties - apply when 15% to 20% leaves infected.

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
Dow AgroSciences PropiMax Fungicide is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 3 Fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group 3 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product 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, Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.

MIXING
Shake well before use. Fill the spray tank and then add concentrate. Mix well.
Pineapples - Pre-plant dip:
Add the required amount of PropiMax directly to the dip and mix well. Avoid excessive contamination of the dip  with organic matter.

APPLICATION
PropiMax may be applied by ground rig, high or low volume, or by air.
Cereals:
May be applied by boom spray or aircraft. Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. The objective of spraying is to keep the upper 2-3 leaves green and functioning through grain filling stage.
With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10 - 20 L/ha with the lower rate being used when applications are made with a cross wind of not less than 5 knots. Use the higher volume when applying to dense crops.
Bananas:
Apply by misting machine, air blast sprayer or aircraft.  
Use a minimum of 30 L water if applying by air.
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 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 also may 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 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) 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 x (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).
4. If the dilute label is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 mL/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.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD
DO NOT enter treated area until spray has dried.
