BARLEY
Disease: Powdery Mildew (Blumeria graminis)
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 150 to 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks
Grazing 7 days

Disease: Barley Scald (Rhynchosporium secalis)
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks 
Grazing 7 days

Critical Comments: Spray at the first sign of the disease during the tillering stage. A repeat spray 21 to 28 days later may be required. Ensure thorough coverage of stems and leaves.
Powdery Mildew: Higher rates provide longer protection.

Disease: Net Blotch -
Spot form (Pyrenophora teres f. maculata)
Net form (Pyrenophora teres f. teres )
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 250 to 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks 
Grazing 7 days
Critical Comments: Apply from jointing (Z30) and before significant infection averages 10% on the flag-2 leaf. Ensure thorough coverage of stems and leaves. Use higher rates under high infection pressure or when longer residual protection is required. Lower rates are effective under low disease pressure but have reduced residual effect. Two applications of the lower rate 14 to 28 days apart will generally provide better control than a single application at the higher rate. When conditions are particularly favourable, the net form of the disease can be particularly aggressive and the higher rate only should be used under these conditions.

BORONIA
Disease: Rust (Puccinia boroniae)
State: Tas, WA only
Rate:
Per hectare: 500 mL to 1 L
High volume: -
WHP: -
Critical Comments: Apply 2 to 5 applications at 10 to 14 day intervals during the main disease period. Use the lower rate when application is made protectively before disease occurs. Use the higher rate when the disease is first observed and when the minimum number of applications are applied.

OATS
Disease: Stem Rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp avenae)
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks

Disease: Crown Rust (Puccinia coronata f. sp avenae)
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 250 to 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks
Grazing 7 days
Critical Comments: Apply after flag blade leaf is fully emerged or Z39 and before disease levels reach 1% of flag leaf area. Consider control if disease is greater than 5 to 10% on any lower leaf layer. Use higher rates under high infection pressure or when longer residual protection is required. Lower rates are effective under low disease pressure but have reduced residual effect. Ensure thorough coverage.

Disease: Suppression of Septoria Leaf Blotch (Leptosphaeria avenaria)
State: All States
Rate:
Per hectare: 250 to 500 mL
High volume: -
WHP: 
Harvest 4 weeks
Grazing 7 days
Critical Comments: Apply after flag blade leaf is fully emerged or Z39 if infection averages 10% on the flag-2 leaf. The high rate of application gives a longer period of protection than the lower rates. Use higher rates on high potential crops when conditions favour severe disease development during flowering. Lower rates are effective under low disease pressure but have reduced residual effect. Ensure thorough coverage.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Wheat - Stripe rust - susceptible varieties: Apply when 10% leaves infected.
Wheat - Stripe rust - moderately susceptible varieties: Apply when 15 to 20% leaves infected.

Mixing
Add the required amount directly to the spray tank and mix well.
Pineapples - preplant dip: Add the required amount of TILT 250 EC directly to the dip and mix well. Avoid excessive contamination of the dip with organic matter.

Application
Cereals: May be applied by boom spray or aircraft. Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. The object of spraying is to keep the upper 2 to 3 leaves green and functioning through grain filling stage.
With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10 to 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 rates when applying to dense crops.
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 runoff 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 runoff. 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 Direction 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.
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 runoff) 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 2000 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: for example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 4 x (ie, 2000 L / 500 L = 4)
4. If the dilute label rate is 25 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 4 x 25, that is 100 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.

Compatibility
TILT 250 EC is compatible with many commonly used orchard sprays which includes Ridomil Gold Plus and some formulations of azinphos-methyl, demeton-s-methyl, diazinon, methomyl liquid, propargite, parathion, dimethoate, copper oxychloride, mancozeb, zineb and chlorothalonil. Mixtures with more than one of the above are not recommended.

GROUP 3 FUNGICIDE

Fungicide Resistance Warning
TILT 250 EC SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management TILT 250 EC is a Group 3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to TILT 250 EC 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 TILT 250 EC and other Group 3fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Syngenta Crop Protection Pty Limited accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of TILT 250 EC to control resistant fungi.
