Omni Brand T-Methyl 70WP
THIOPHANATE METHYL 70W WSB 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. Specified application gallonage and directions are given for each crop. THIOPHANATE METHYL 70W WSB may be tank mixed with other fungicides, insecticides and plant growth regulators that have been approved for use by the EPA on the intended crop. Argite does not make any claims of compatibility with other pesticides; always perform a Mixing Jar Test prior to tank mixing.
See Compatibility Test section on this label. Do not tank mix this product with highly alkaline pesticides like Bordeaux or lime sulfur. Most effective disease control is obtained by preventative 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: Use the PRODUCT per ACRE rate for concentrate spray applications for tree crops (example: no more than 400 gallons on apples). Use the PRODUCT per 100 GALLONS rate for dilute ground applications. Only use this product 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 exceed maximum a.i. per year.
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 Crop applications: Use a minimum of 5 gal/acre for ground application, however most ground applications require 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.
Chemigation: See specific directions in this label.
Mode of Action: THIOPHANATE METHYL 70W WSB is a tubulin inhibitor fungicide falling into the FRAC Group 1 for Benzimidazoles. 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, take precautions and specific steps to ensure effective fungicide rotation, which, along with tank mixing of different modes of action and disease monitoring, are the keys of your fungicide program.
Rotate or tank mix THIOPHANATE METHYL 70W WSB with different modes of action fungicide chemistry. All products containing thiabendazole, thiophanate ethyl or carbendazim fungicides (benzimidazole fungicides) are NOT considered rotation or tank mix partners. When THIOPHANATE METHYL 70W WSB is applied as directed and the treatment is considered not to be effective, you may encounter a resistant or tolerant fungi strain. Do not apply this mode of action chemistry again during this year, as this may enhance the resistance at this site. Consult with your local Cooperative Extension Service, University Research or Certified Crop Consultant for more information concerning fungicides effective on the tolerant or resistant strains encountered.
