LPI Thio-M 70 WSB
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your state or tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.
This product may be applied by ground or aerial application equipment. Normal fungicide usage indicates this product will be applied over the top of the intended crop, it is critical to ensure that the tank and spray equipment has been cleaned of all other pesticides prior to mixing this product. As with all agricultural chemicals, continuous agitation is required to keep the ingredients in suspension, Recommended application gallonage and directions are given for each crop.
This product may be tank mixed with otlier fungicides, insecticides and plant growth regulators that have been approved for use by the EPA on the intended crop. Loveland Products, Inc. does not make any claims of compatibility with other pesticides; always perform a mixing jar test prior to tank mixing. See
COMPATIBILITY TEST section of this label. Tank mixes of this product with highly alkaline pesticides like Bordeaux or lime sulfur is not recommended.
Most effective disease control is obtained by preventive spray timing as climatic conditions indicate fungal infection or growth is imminent. Always use the higher rates under conditions of severe disease pressure.
High volume dilute applications: Applicator should use the product per acre rate for concentrate spray applications for tree crops (example: no more than 400 gallon on apples), Use the product per 100-gallon rate for dilute ground applications. This product may be used on fruit-bearing trees and may also be used on non-bearing apples, cherries, peaches, and pecans, when needed for control of labeled leaf diseases during non-bearing years of new plantings or nursery stock. Follow all crop specific language on this label for application. Dilute sprays must not be applied in a manner that exceeds the application rate as specified in the CROP SPECIFIC APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS table below.
Aerial applications to tree crops: Use a minimum of 10 gal/acre for aerial application to fruit tree crops. Increased fungicidal activity is related to coverage and timing, increased volumes are required as crop canopy density increases. Note: Conifer applications require higher spray volumes, use lower volumes with mist type applicators and highest volumes with conventional types.
Row, Field and Vine Crop Applications: Use a minimum of 5 gal/acre for ground application, however, most ground applications should be made with 10 to 20 gal/acre as cropping situations dictate. Increased fungicidal activity is related to coverage and timing, increased volumes are required as crop canopy density increases.
Plantback Restriction: Do not plant any crop not labeled for this product use within 30 days from the last application.
Chemigation: See specific directions in this label.
Mode of Action: This product is a tUbulin inhibitor fungicide falling into the FRAC GrolJP 1 for· Benzimidazole. Its mode of action is the inhibition of microtubule assembly. It has protectant systemic and curative actions, each of these specific to certain crops, fungi and climatic conditions.
Fungicide Resistance: Fungal pathogens have proven to develop a resistance to certain fungicide families and modes of action. These are called tolerant and resistant strains of fungi. Industry and university research have developed effective programs that continue to provide excellent control of these strains, however, precautions and specific steps should be taken to ensure effective fungicide program.
It is recommended that this product be rotated or tank mixed with other fungicides with different modes of action chemistry. Products containing thiabendazole or carbendazim fungicide (benzimidazole fungicides)should NOT be combined as rotation or tank mix partners. Should this product be applied as directed and the treatment is considered not to be effective, you may have encountered a resistant or tolerant fungi strain. Do not apply this mode of action chemistry again during this growing season, as this may enhance the resistance at this site. Consult with your local cooperative extension service, university research or certified crop consultant for mor,e information concerning fungicides effective on the tolerant or resistant strains encountered.
This product is packaged in a protective outer, resealable package containing water-soluble bags. Do not allow bags (WSB) to become wet prior to adding to the tank. Do not handle WSB with wet hands or wet gloves.
Fill spray tank to half full, start agitation. See MIXING ORDER chart below when any other products are tank mixed with this product.
Remove the appropriate number of unopened water-soluble bags from the outer package, adding them to the tank. Reseal the outer bag immediately to protect the unopened bags from moisture. Do not add water-soluble bags near suction area of the tank as plugging may occur prior to the bags fully dissolving.
The dissolve time for the bags will depend on the water temperature and degree/type of agitation. Most bags should be dissolved in 5 minutes. If planning to tank mix high pH products or fertilizers high in nitrogen or boron, wait until this product is fully dissolved before adding them to the tank,
Should other products or pesticides be tank mixed with this product, use the MIXING ORDER chart and add all products, then finish filling tank with water, all the while maintaining agitation. If there is any question as to the compatibility of components, always perform a jar test with proportional amounts of each product, using water from the actual use source.
Always read and follow label directions of all products. The most restrictive label language will apply do not mix more spray solution than you plan to apply that day,
