AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide contains the active ingredient, propiconazole, which provides control of a broad range of plant diseases in the listed crops, turf and ornamentals. FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS ON THIS LABEL MAY RESULT IN CROP INJURY, POOR DISEASE CONTROL, OR ILLEGAL RESIDUES.
Rotation Crop Restrictions
To prevent possible illegal residues in crops grown in fields previously treated with AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide, follow the plant back restrictions in the following table.
There are inherent risks of diseases developing tolerance to any fungicide product; therefore it is strongly advised that AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide be used in a sound resistance management program. AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide belongs to the Group 3 class of fungicides which means that propiconazole acts as a demethylation inhibitor of sterol biosynthesis in the membranes of fungi. Resistance can develop whenever products with the same mode of action are used over and over in the same fields or crops. Follow the directions on this label for rotation of AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide with fungicides which are not in the Group 3 class and limitations on the number of applications per season of AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide. Additional resistance management strategies may be obtained from your local or State agricultural authorities. Avoid alternating the use of or tank-mixing AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide with other fungicides with known resistance to fungal diseases listed on this label.
Use sufficient volumes of water to ensure a thorough, uniform coverage of foliage. For best results, allow AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide residues to dry on foliage before a rainfall event. Do not apply when conditions prevent a uniform coverage of crop canopy or if spray drift may occur.
Ground Application: Apply AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide to tree crops in a minimum of 50 gals. of water per acre and to other crops in a minimum of 10 gals. of water per acre, unless specified otherwise in this label.
Aerial Applications: Apply AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide to tree crops in a minimum of 10 gals. of water per acre and to other crops in a minimum of 2 gals. of water per acre, unless specified otherwise in this label.
Application Through Irrigation Systems (Chemigation) – Use chemigation to apply AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide to only the crops for which chemigation is specified on this label. Apply in no more than 0.1 – 0.25 inches of water or reduced efficacy may result.
AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide, alone or in combination with other pesticides which are registered for application through irrigation systems may be applied through irrigation systems. Apply this product only through center pivot, solid set, hand move, or moving wheel irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water. If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers, or other experts. Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system, unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place. A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.
Notes: Do not inject AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide at full strength or deterioration of valves and seals mayoccur. Use a dilution ratio of at least 10 parts water to 1 part AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide. AmTide Propiconazole 41.8% EC Fungicide is corrosive to many seal materials. Leather seals are best. EPDM or silicon rubber seals can be used, but should be replaced once a year. Do not use Viton, Buna-N, Neoprene, or PVC seals.
