GROUP M3 FUNGICIDE

Controls black spot and other fungal diseases in celery, grapes, apples, pears, roses and stone fruit as specified in the DIRECTIONS FOR USE table

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Fungicide Resistance Warning
For fungicide resistance management Ziram Granuflo is a Group M3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring fungal populations resistant to Ziram Granuflo and other Group M3 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 Ziram Granuflo and other Group M3 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, Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that result from failure of Ziram Granuflo to control resistant fungi.

Export of Treated Produce
Growers should note that MRLs or import tolerances do not exist in all markets for edible produce treated with Ziram Granuflo. If you are growing edible produce for export, please check with Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd for the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances before using Ziram Granuflo.

Mixing
Do not dump the required product into the spray tank all at once. With the spray tank no more than a quarter full, slowly add the product ensuring continuous agitation. Add the required amount of water. When tank is nearly full add a wetting agent. Agitate well.

Application
Apply before disease symptoms appear and spray to obtain thorough coverage of stems, leaves, buds and flowers.

Special Instructions for Tree/Vine Crops
Dilute Spraying
- 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.

Concentrate Spraying
- 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: EXAMPLE ONLY
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 150 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 150, that is 450 g 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.

Compatibility
Do not mix with lime sulphur or with fungicides containing copper.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Tree / Vine Crops:

RATE In the following table, all rates are given for dilute spraying. For concentrate spraying, refer to the Special Instructions for Tree/Vine Crops section.

CRITICAL COMMENTS: For all uses in this table: Apply by dilute or concentrate spraying equipment. Apply the same total amount of product to the target crop whether applying this product by dilute or concentrate spraying methods. Refer to the Special instructions for Tree/Vine Crops section.

APPLES
Disease: Black spot
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply after early copper sprays. Apply at spur burst, pink bud stage and then every 14 days or as required in cover sprays.

GRAPES
Disease: Black spot
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply at bud swell, bud burst and 2 to 3 weeks later as a foliar cover spray. If wet weather persists apply at 10 to 14 day intervals.

PEARS
Disease: Black spot
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply after early copper sprays. Apply at spur burst, white bud and calyx stage, then every 14 days or as required in cover sprays.

STONE FRUIT
(except apricots)
Disease: Blossom blight, brown rot, shot hole
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply at mid full bloom, early petal fall and at shuck fall. Apply cover sprays at 14 day intervals after fruit commences to ripen. Also apply at 21 and 7 days before harvest.

Disease: Freckle
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply at shuck fall and then every 3 week until 8 weeks before harvest.

Disease: Leaf curl
Rate: 240 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply at early bud swell.
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply at petal fall following a copper spray at bud movement.

Non Tree / Vine Crops:
CELERY
Disease: Septoria leaf spot
Rate: 150 g/100 L
Critical comments: Apply as a protective spray every 7 to 10 days from seedling to harvest.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION

WITHHOLDING PERIOD
