For fungicide resistance management Dow AgroSciences SYSTHANE 400 WP Fungicide 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 fungi population if these fungicides are used repeatedly.  These resistant fungi will not be controlled by Dow AgroSciences SYSTHANE 400 WP Fungicide and 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 accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Dow AgroSciences SYSTHANE 400 WP Fungicide to control resistant fungi.

Add the required number of water soluble sachets direct to the vat when about one third full with agitators in motion. Add other products after Dow AgroSciences Systhane has dispersed. If premixing, use at least 2 litres of water for each sachet. Do not mix with water with high free chlorine content, or with borax, as it may affect solubility of sachets.
Dow AgroSciences Systhane 400 WP Fungicide may be applied with hand wands or conventional orchard sprayers.

DILUTE SPRAYING - Apples and Pears
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and match 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 first 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 runoff.
The required dilute spray volume 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 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. Consult your local advisor, agronomist or Department of Agriculture to determine this volume. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:
Concentrate Spraying Example
1) Dilute spray volume as determined above:  e.g. 1500 L/ha
2) Your chosen concentrate spray volume:  e.g. 500 L/ha
3) The concentration factor is 3X (1500 ÷ 500L)
4) If the dilute label rate is 12 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 12,  i.e. 36 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.

Ensure spray equipment is well maintained and calibrated before using. Check the pump, nozzles and hose lines for leaks or wear. After use flush lines thoroughly with clean water.

Systhane 400 WP Fungicide may be mixed with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides. As formulations of other manufacturers’ products are beyond the control of Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.

Systhane may leave detectable chemical residues in harvested strawberries. Overseas markets may not have appropriate residue tolerances in place or may have established residue tolerances lower than Australian maximum residue limit. If you are using this product on strawberries destined for export, please contact Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited for up to date information.

RE-ENTRY (Strawberries):
DO NOT allow entry into treated area until the spray has dried. When prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each days use.
