Controls fungal diseases of Fruit Trees, Grapevines, Strawberries, Vegetables & Ornamentals; and for use as a seed treatment to control various fungal diseases of Chickpeas, Lupins and Sorghum.
Foliar Apply when conditions favour disease development or at first sign of disease. Thiragranz is a protectorant fungicide only and will not eradicate infection which has already occurred. Spray to obtain thorough coverage of stems, leaves, buds and flowers.
This product does not adversely affect germination if used as directed, however when rhizobium inoculum is also added to seed, the viability of the inoculum may be reduced. Always apply the fungicide first and allow to dry. Apply the inoculum immediately prior to sowing. Sow into a moist seed-bed as soon as possible after treatment. If seed is sown into a dry seed-bed, then fungicidal seed treatment can cause a reduction in nodulation.
Seed treatment can alter seed flow characteristics. The drill should be recalibrated using treated seed prior to seeding.
Equipment used for applying this product can be cleaned out with water. Do not carry over treated seed from season to season. Treated seed is to be used only for sowing. When mixing Thiragranz with other seed protectant formulations add the seed protectant only after the Thiragranz granules are fully dispersed. The mixture should be agitated before and during use to ensure even application.
Thiragranz does not contain pigments/dyes normally found in seed treatments. Treated seed may be difficult to distinguish from untreated seed. Seed treated with Thiragranz may only be stored if it has been treated with other pigmented seed treatments. If Thiragranz is used alone treated seed MUST NOT be stored.
Foliar Application - This product mixes readily with water, no pre-mixing is required. During mixing, the spray vat should be no more than 25% full of water. Vigorous agitation of vat contents is required during the addition of the product. Pour product steadily when adding the required amount to the spray vat. DO NOT DUMP all the required product into the vat at once. When the product has been thoroughly dispersed and the spray tank is nearly full add Crop Care ‘Shirwet’ 600 Spray Activator Wetting and Spreading Agent or Nufarm Surfactant 600 at a rate of 16 mL/100 L of spray solution.
Seed treatment – Refer to Critical Comments in Table B above (Thiragranz Applied as a Seed Dressing).
Do not let the spray solution or slurry dry in application equipment as flakes can block filters and limit the flow to spray nozzles. Where the diluted product has been permitted to stand for an extended period, then the mixture should be again agitated well.
