GENERAL INFORMATION
A15457 Fungicide is a broad-spectrum product and is recommended for the control or suppression of many important plant diseases. A15457 Fungicide provides disease control of many rust, leaf spots and powdery mildews. A15457 Fungicide is primarily applied as a foliar spray and can be used in block, or alternating spray programs with other crop protection products. All applications should be made according to the use directions listed in the label.
General Use Precautions
Do not apply A15457 Fungicide through any type of irrigation equipment.
DO NOT USE IN GREENHOUSES (ALONE OR IN TANK MIXTURES).
FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS ON THIS LABEL MAY RESULT IN CROP INJURY, POOR DISEASE CONTROL, AND/OR ILLEGAL RESIDUES.
Apply the higher rate and shorter interval under conditions of high disease pressures.
Unless indicated otherwise in the use directions for specific crops, make no more than two sequential application of A15457 Fungicide before alternating with a non-Group 7 fungicide registered for the same disease.
Not all members of the crop groups have been tested for efficacy and phytotoxicity at the recommended label rates, and should be used at the discretion of the user.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests.
DO NOT contaminate irrigation or drinking water supplies or aquatic habitats by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
SPRAY EQUIPMENT
Thorough coverage is necessary to provide good disease control. Applications using nozzles, sufficient water volume and pressure to provide thorough and uniform coverage generally provide the most effective disease control.
To avoid spray drift, do not apply when conditions favor drift beyond the target area. Avoid spray overlap, as crop injury may occur.
For more information on spray equipment and calibration, consult sprayer manufacturers and provincial recommendations.
Field sprayer application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE S572.1) medium classification. Boom height must be 60 cm or less above the crop or ground.
Airblast application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT direct spray above plants to be treated. Turn off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and outer rows. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at the application site as measured outside of the treatment area on the upwind side.
Aerial application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm. Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at flying height at the site of application. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE S572.1) medium classification. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wing- or rotorspan. 

MIXING PROCEDURES
Prepare only the amount of spray mixture that is needed for the immediate operation. Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product. Vigorous agitation is necessary for proper dispersal of the product. Maintain maximum agitation throughout the spraying operation. Do not let the spray mixture stand overnight in the spray tank. Flush the spray equipment thoroughly following each use and apply the rinsate to a previously treated area.
- A15457 Fungicide is an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulation.
- Prepare no more spray mixture than is required for the immediate operation.
- Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product.
- Agitate the spray solution before and during application.
- Rinse spray tank thoroughly with clean water after each day’s use and dispose of pesticide rinsate by application to an already treated area.
A15457 Fungicide Alone (No Tank Mix)
- Add 1/2-2/3 of the required amount of water to the spray or mixing tank.
- With the agitator running, add A15457 Fungicide to the tank.
- Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water.
- Begin application of the spray solution after A15457 Fungicide has completely dispersed into the mix water.
- Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been sprayed.
A15457 Fungicide + Tank Mixtures: A15457 Fungicide is usually compatible with all tank-mix partners listed on this label. To determine the physical compatibility of A15457 Fungicide with other products, use a jar test. Using a jar, add the products to water in the same ratio and order as planned in the spray tank. Add wettable powders and water dispersible granular products first, then liquid flowables, then emulsifiable concentrates and solutions last. After thoroughly mixing, let stand for at least 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be remixed readily, it is physically compatible. Once compatibility has been proven, use the same order of addition required ingredients to the spray tank.
Tank Mixtures: All directions for use, crops/sites, use rates, dilution rates, precautions, and limitations which appear on the tank-mix product label must be observed. The label dosage for the tank-mix partner is not to be exceeded, and the most restrictive label precautions and limitations are to be followed.
In some cases, tank mixing a pest control product with another pest control product or a fertilizer can result in biological effects that could include, but are not limited to: reduced pest efficacy or increased host crop injury. The user should contact Syngenta Canada Inc. for information before mixing any pesticide or fertilizer that is not specifically recommended on this label. The user assumes the risk of losses that result from the use of tank mixes that do not appear on this label or that are not specifically recommended by Syngenta Canada Inc.
Mixing in the Spray Tank
- Add 1/2-2/3 of the required amount of water to the spray or mixing tank.
- With the agitator running, add the tank-mix partner(s) into the tank in the same order as described above.
- Allow the material to completely dissolve and disperse into the mix water. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water and A15457 Fungicide to the spray tank.
- Allow A15457 Fungicide to completely disperse.
- Spray the mixture with the agitator running.

DO NOT apply when wind speed is greater than 16 km/h at flying height at the site of application. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) medium classification. To reduce drift caused by turbulent wingtip vortices, the nozzle distribution along the spray boom length MUST NOT exceed 65% of the wingor rotorspan.
Apply at least 45 litres of water per hectare. Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of this label. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.
Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the National Aerial Pesticide Application Manual, developed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides.
Operator Precautions
Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted.
It is desirable that the pilot have communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application.
The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label.
All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly.
Product Specific Precautions
The buffer zones specified in Table 1 above are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands), sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, sloughs, ponds, prairie potholes, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands) and estuarine/marine habitats.
Follow recommendations provided by local disease monitoring services or provincial spray calendars regarding the appropriate application timing for protectant fungicides in your area. Cultural practices such as canopy management and removal of overwintered plant debris should be integrated with the use of fungicides to reduce disease incidence. Use the higher rate, and the shorter application interval under conditions of heavy infection pressure, on highly susceptible varieties, or when environmental conditions are favourable for disease development.
A15457 Fungicide treatments should be integrated into an overall disease management strategy that includes selection of varieties with disease tolerance, plant residue management, crop rotation, and proper timing and placement of fertilizer and irrigation. Fungicide applications should begin prior to disease infection and continue throughout the season following a resistance management strategy (see Resistance Management Recommendations).
