DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be read carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product. VENTURE JEWEL is a broad spectrum fungicide for use in winter and spring wheat, winter and spring barley, rye and triticale.

1. Restrictions/Warnings
This product may cause damage to broad-leaved plant species. Avoid spray drift onto neighbouring crops. Wash equipment thoroughly after use.

2. Disease Control
VENTURE JEWEL is a broad spectrum fungicide for the control of a range of diseases in winter and spring wheat, winter and spring barley, rye and triticale.

2.2 Resistance management
Strains of certain diseases with decreased sensitivity to triazole fungicides are known to exist. Where these occur or develop, VENTURE JEWEL may not give satisfactory control. VENTURE JEWEL contains the DMI fungicides epoxiconazole and metconazole. Resistance to some DMI fungicides has been identified in Septoria leaf blotch (Mycosphaerella graminicola) which may seriously affect the performance of some products. For further advice on resistance management with DMIs contact your agronomist or specialist advisor, and visit the FRAG-UK website. Use VENTURE JEWEL as part of an Integrated Crop Management (ICM) strategy incorporating other methods of control, including where appropriate other fungicides with a different mode of action. A strategy for managing resistance should be adopted. Guidelines have been produced by the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) and copies are available from your distributor, crop adviser or product manufacturer.

3. Crop specific information
3.1 Crops
VENTURE JEWEL may be used on all varieties of winter and spring wheat, winter and spring barley, rye and triticale.

3.2 Time of application
Apply VENTURE JEWEL at the start of disease attack. Applications can be made up to the end of flowering (GS 69) in wheat, rye and triticale and up to and including emergence of ear just complete (GS 59) in barley. For optimum effect against eyespot with VENTURE JEWEL apply between the leaf sheaths erect and second node detectable stages of the crop. For protection against Fusarium ear blight and sooty moulds on the ears of winter and spring wheat and triticale, apply VENTURE JEWEL during ear emergence.

3.3 Rate of application
Apply 3 litres of pack ‘A’ plus 1.5 litres pack ‘B’ in 150 to 300 litres of water per hectare.
Qualified recommendation
VENTURE JEWEL may be applied in 100 litres water per hectare although efficacy at this reduced volume has not been evaluated. Therefore application at 100 litres water per hectare is at user’s risk with regard to biological efficacy.

4. Following crops
After treating a cereal crop, oilseed rape, cereals, sugar beet, linseed, maize, clover, beans, peas, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, cabbage, sunflower, ryegrass and onions may be sown as the following crops.

5. Mixing and Spraying
5.1 Mixing
Never prepare more spray solution than is required. Fill the tank half full with water and start the agitation. SHAKE THE CONTAINER WELL before use and pour in the required amount of pack ‘A’ plus the required amount of pack ‘B’ to the spray tank while re-circulating. Fill up the tank with water and continue agitation until spraying is completed. On emptying the container, rinse container thoroughly by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of container safely.

5.2 Application
Apply as a MEDIUM spray as defined by BCPC, in 150 to 300 litres of water per hectare.

5.3 Sprayer cleaning
After spraying, thoroughly clean and flush out application machinery with a minimum of three rinses.
