DuPont Aproach Fungicide is a broad-spectrum fungicide for control of foliar and soil-borne plant diseases and has preventive, curative, and systemic activity. DuPont™ Aproach® Fungicide must be applied in a regularly scheduled protective spray program in rotation with other Fungicides. When used in a disease control program, DuPont Aproach Fungicide improves plant health, vigor, and yield. See directions below for specific crop/disease instructions. DuPont Aproach Fungicide rapidly penetrates into plant tissues and is rainfast within 1-hour after application. This product may be applied to crop sites that contain areas of temporary surface water caused by collection of water between planting beds, in equipment ruts, or in other depressions caused by management activities.
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT
This product may be used as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that can include biological, cultural, and genetic practices aimed at preventing economic pest damage. IPM principles and practices include field scouting or other detection methods, correct target pest identification, population monitoring, and treating when disease forecasting models reach locally determined action thresholds. Consult your state cooperative extension service, professional consultants, or other qualified authorities to determine appropriate action treatment threshold levels for treating specific pest/crop or site systems in your area.
For resistance management, DuPont Aproach Fungicide contains a Group 11 fungicide. Any fungal population may ontain individuals naturally resistant to DuPont Aproach Fungicide and other Group 11 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Appropriate resistancemanagement strategies should be followed.
To delay fungicide resistance, take one or more of the following steps:
•Rotate the use of DuPont Aproach Fungicide or other Group 11 fungicides within a growing season sequence with different groups that control the same pathogens. Avoid application of more than two consecutive sprays of DuPont Aproach Fungicide or other fungicides in the same group in a season.
• Use tank mixtures with fungicides from a different group that are equally effective on the target pest when such use is permitted. Use at least the minimum application rate as labeled by the manufacturer.
• Adopt an integrated disease management program for fungicide use that includes scouting, uses historical information related to pesticide use, and crop rotation, and which considers host plant resistance, impact of environmental conditions on disease development, disease thresholds, as well as cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
•Where possible, make use of predictive disease models to effectively time fungicide applications. Note that using predictive models alone is not sufficient to manage resistance.
• Monitor treated fungal populations for resistance development.
•Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisor for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens.
• For further information or to report suspected resistance contact your DuPont representative. You can also contact your pesticide distributor or university extension specialist to report resistance.
