Polyram 80 DF
Polyram 80 OF fungicide is effective for controlling apple scab, apple rusts, and early blight and late blight in potatoes. It is recommended that Polyram 80 OF be
used in an integrated Pest Management Program.
All listed crops are tolerant to Polyram 80 OF at all stages of growth.
Polyram 80 OF is a contact fungicide, therefore, thorough coverage of plant parts to be protected is essential for effective disease control.
Cleaning Spray Equipment
Clean application equipment thoroughly using a strong detergent or commercial sprayer cleaner according to, the manufacturer's directions before and after applying this product.
Polyram 80 OF fungicide may only be used at the rates listed in section VI. Crop-Specific Information.
Ground Application (Broadcast)
Water Volume: Use a minimum of 20 gallons PE?r acre for apples. Use a minimum of 15 gallons per acre for potatoes.
Water Volume: Use a minimum of 10 gallons per acre for apples. Use a minimum of 5 gallons per acre for potatoes.
SPRAY DRIFT MANAGEMENT
A variety of factors including weather conditions (e.g., wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity) and method of application (e.g., ground, aerial, airblast, chemigation) can influence pesticide drift. The applicator must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product.
DO NOT apply at wind speeds greater than 15 mph.
If applying at wind speeds less than 3 mph, the applicator must determine if, a) conditions of temperature inversion exist, or b) stable atmospheric conditions exist at or below nozzle height. DO NOT make applications into areas of temperature inversions or stable atmospheric conditions. Other State and Local Requirements Applicators must follows all state and local pesticide drift requirements regarding application of metiram. Where states have more stringent regulations, they must be observed.
All aerial and ground application equipment must be properly maintained and calibrated using appropriate carriers or surrogates.
Additional requirements for aerial applications:
1. The boom length must not exceed 75% of the wingspan or 90% of the rotor blade diameter.
2. Release spray at the lowest height consistent with efficacy and flight safety. DO NOT release spray at a height greater than 10 feet above the crop canopy
unless a greater height is required for aircraft safety.
3. When applications are made with a crosswind, the swath must be displaced downwind. The applicator must compensate for this displacement at the up and
downwind edge of the application area by adjusting the path of the aircraft upwind.
Additional requirements for ground boom application:
1. DO NOT apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
• Where EBOC products used allow the same maximum poundage of active ingredient per acre per season: If more than one product containing an EBDC active ingredient (maneb, mancozeb, or metiram) is used on a crop during the same growing season and the EBDC products used allow the same maximum poundage of active ingredient per acre per season, then the total poundage of all such EBDC products used must not exceed any of the specified individual product maximum seasonal poundage of EBDC active ingredient allowed per acre.
• Where EBOC products used allow the different maximum poundage of active ingredient per acre per season: If more than one product containing an EBDC active ingredient is used on a crop during the same growing season and the EBDC products used allow different maximum poundage of active ingredient per acre per season, then the total poundage of all such EBDC products used must not exceed the lowest specified individual EBDC product maximum seasonal poundage of active ingredient allowed per acre.
In addition to the maximum number of foliar applications permitted by the formula stated above, a single seed treatment application may be made on potatoes.
