Fungicide Resistance Warning
Rovral Aquaflo Fungicide is a member of the dicarboximide group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 2 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group 2 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 2 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 Australasia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.
Do rotate to use products with as many different modes of action as possible to reduce the possibility of resistance development where alternatives are available.
Where specific resistance management strategies are established these are detailed at the CropLife Australia website (http://www.croplifeaustralia.org.au/default.asp?V Doc ID=1792) or from your local agronomist.
Export of treated produce
Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances may not exist in all markets for produce treated with Rovral Aquaflo. If you are growing produce for export, please check with FMC Australasia Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using Rovral Aquaflo.
Note: Rovral Aquaflo may be unstable in conditions where the pH is 7 or higher. It is therefore essential to check the pH of the spray solution before adding Rovral Aquaflo. A suitable registered buffering agent may have to be added to bring the pH down below 7.
Add the required amount of Rovral Aquaflo to the spray tank containing half the required volume of water. Mix thoroughly and make up to the required volume with water.
Good disease control requires even, thorough coverage of the target area. Application should be made using appropriate spray equipment and sufficient water to provide adequate penetration and coverage. Equipment settings and water volume may need to vary, depending on the growth stage of the crop.
Special instructions for Tree Crops/Vines
- 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.
- 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:
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 rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 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.
This product may be combined with:
(1) Aliette WG (see NOTE below), Bugmaster Flowable, calcium chloride, chlorpyrifos 500 g/L EC, copper oxychloride, dimethoate, Dithane DF, Dithane M-45, DPA, endosulfan, fenitrothion, Kelthane EC, maldison, metalaxyl, methomyl or parathion-methyl.
When tank mixing products the order of mixing is determined by formulation type. As a guide the following mixing sequence is recommended:
1. Wettable powders
2. Suspension concentrates (e.g. Rovral Aquaflo)
3. Water dispersible granules
5. Soluble powders
7. Emulsifiable concentrates
8. Soluble concentrates
9. Wetting agents and oils
With any mixture, thoroughly agitate immediately before applying. It is not recommended to mix this product with more than one of the above chemicals in the tank. DO NOT tank mix this product with fertilisers.
NOTE: (1) Mixing Rovral Aquaflo with Aliette WG may result in some settling out.
As formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of FMC Corporation Pty Ltd, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.
PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS
DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause spray to drift onto nearby plants/ crops, cropping lands or pastures.
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT
Toxic to aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.
