FOR CONTROL OF DOWNY MILDEW AND CERTAIN OTHER FOLIAR DISEASES AS INDICATED IN THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRAINTS:
DO NOT apply more than four sprays per season (except for tobacco). Use a recommended non-systemic fungicide for further applications.
DO NOT apply if rain is expected within 6 hours.
DO NOT apply as a curative spray as this will favour the development of resistant disease strains. Application should be on a protectant program basis only.
DO NOT use Zeemil 720 WG for disease control in greenhouse crops.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:
Zeemil 720 WG is a fungicide combining the systemic properties of metalaxyl with the protective properties of mancozeb. Zeemil 720 WG should be applied as a protective fungicide before disease occurs.
MIXING:
Fill the spray tank with 1/4 of the required volume of water and start agitating. Add the required amount of product and allow to disperse. Add the remainder of the water while continuing to agitate. Ensure that the product is thoroughly mixed before spraying starts. Continue agitation during spraying. Agitate vigorously from the bottom of the spray tank if mixture is left to stand.
TANK MIXING:
When mixing Zeemil 720 WG and other water dispersible granule (WG) or wettable powder (WP) formulations, ensure that they are added and mixed well prior to adding emulsifiable concentrate (EC) or suspension concentrate (SC) products. Wettable powder (WP) formulations should be pre-mixed separately and then added to the spray tank.

Application (Vine crops only)
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 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 may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.

CONCENTRATE SPRAYING
(a) 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.
(b) Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume.
(c) Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
(d) The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY
(i) Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
(ii) Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
(iii) The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)
(iv) If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spray.
(e) 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.
(f) For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
