DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Read all Directions for Use carefully before applying. 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.
Rotational Crops To avoid possible illegal residues, do not plant any other crop intended for food, grazing, or any component of animal feed or bedding within 105 days of an application of Protocol to the preceding crop unless the second crop appears on this label. Alfalfa may be planted 75 days after the last application of Protocol if the total application of propiconazole has not exceeded 0.22 pound active ingredient per acre during the previous year.
The active ingredient in this product may have effects on federally-listed threatened and endangered species or critical habitat in some counties. When using this product, you must follow the measures contained in the County Bulletin for the county in which you are applying the pesticide. To determine whether your county has a bulletin, consult http://www.epa.gov/espp/ bulletins.htm. Bulletins may also be available from local pesticide dealers, extension offices, or state pesticide agencies.
Protocol is a broad-spectrum fungicide for the control of certain diseases in Almonds, Peanuts, Pecans, Soybeans, Stone fruits, Strawberries, Sugar beets, Wheat, Turf and Ornamentals.
Important: Do not use in Greenhouses or as a Tree injection. Failure to follow directions and precautions on this label may result in crop injury, poor disease control, and/or illegal residues.
Integrated Pest Management
Protocol should be integrated into an overall disease and pest management (IPM) strategy whenever the use of a fungicide is required. Cultural practices known to reduce disease development should be followed. Consult your local agricultural authorities for additional IPM strategies established for your area. This product may be used in state agricultural extension advisory (disease forecasting) programs using the recommended application timing based upon environmental factors favorable for disease development.
Fungicide Resistance Management
Propiconazole belongs to the sterol demethylation inhibitor (DMI) class of fungicides and is classified as a Group 3 Fungicide. Thiophanate-methyl belongs to the Methyl Benzimidazole Carbamates (MBC) class of fungicides and is classified as a Group 1 Fungicide. Since certain fungi can develop resistance to these classes of products, the use of Protocol should be part of a resistance management strategy that includes alternation and/or tank mixing with another fungicide mode of action. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Rotate to a product that is effective on the target pathogen and has a mode of action different from this product. Apply the alternate products within the intervals specified on this product’s label. Do not apply this product at rates below those specified on the label. If tank mixing, use the full label rate of this product with the full label rates of other products effective on the target pest. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for resistance management strategies that are appropriate for your disease management program. This product should not be alternated or tank-mixed with any fungicide to which resistance has already developed.
