Fungicide for use on brassica leafy vegetables, bulb vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, fruiting vegetables, grapes, hops, leafy vegetables and potatoes


GENERAL INFORMATION
This package contains ZAMPRO Fungicide, a 525 g/L SC (Suspension Concentrate) with two active ingredients ametoctradin and dimethomorph. The active ingredients in ZAMPRO Fungicide belong to two classes of fungicides having different modes of action, a beneficial feature to improve disease control and delay resistance. To maximize disease control, only apply ZAMPRO Fungicide in a preventative spray program and use in a rotation program with other fungicides having different modes of action.


PRECAUTIONS
1. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
2. During all activities, worker must wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt and socks and shoes. During mixing, loading, clean-up and repair activities, workers must also wear chemical resistant gloves.
3. Harmful or fatal if swallowed.
4. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet. Change out of work clothes and take a bath or shower after handling or spraying the product. Launder protective clothing before re-use.
5. For potatoes and fruiting vegetables, do not enter treated areas within 12 hours after application. For all other crops, see the specific Application Rate Table for the restricted entry interval.
6. Clean spray equipment thoroughly after use.
7. Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity such as houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversions, application equipment and sprayer settings.
8. If this pest control product is to be used on a commodity that may be exported to the U.S. and you require information on acceptable residue levels in the U.S., visit CropLife Canada’s web site at www.croplife.ca.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply recommended rates of ZAMPRO Fungicide as instructed in the following crop specific application rate and timing table. Apply ZAMPRO Fungicide with ground or aerial equipment. Equipment should be checked frequently for proper calibration.
The use of additives or adjuvant may improve the performance of ZAMPRO Fungicide. However, all varieties and cultivars have not been tested with possible tank mixture combinations. Local conditions can also influence crop tolerance and may not match those under which BASF has conducted testing. Physical incompatibility, reduced disease control or crop injury may result from mixing ZAMPRO Fungicide with other products. Therefore, before using any tank mix (fungicides, insecticides, liquid fertilizers, biological control products, adjuvant and additives) test a small portion of the crop to be treated to ensure that a phytotoxic response will not occur.
NOT FOR USE IN GREENHOUSES.

RESTRICTIONS
Plant Back Interval: A plant back restriction of 30 days is required for all crops not on the label.
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.

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) 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) 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 rotor-span.
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. Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on this label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment. Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices.

Aerial Use Precautions
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.

Aerial 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
Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at 1-877-371-BASF (2273) or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agricultural representative.

RESISTANCE-MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS
It is known that plant diseases can develop resistance when exposed to one type of product or even products of similar chemistry. Good management practices will minimize the risk of resistance development. Use cultural practices to minimize the sources of disease as well as early preventive applications of fungicides. Consult your local extension services for disease outbreak forecasts and additional integrated pest management recommendations for your area.
For resistance management, please note that ZAMPRO Fungicide contains a Group 40 Fungicide and a Group 45 fungicide. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to ZAMPRO Fungicide. The resistant individuals may dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay fungicide resistance:
Avoid application of more than two consecutive sprays of ZAMPRO Fungicide or other fungicides in the same group in a season.
Fungicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
Monitor treated fungal populations for resistance development.
If disease continues to progress after treatment with this product, do not increase the use rate. Discontinue use of this product, and switch to another fungicide with a different target site of action, if available.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens.
For further information and to report suspected resistance, contact BASF at 1-877-371-2273.


MIXING
1. Ensure the spray tank is clean before use. Follow the clean-out recommendations stated on the label of the product that was previously used.
