PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide is a broad-spectrum systemic fungicide for the control of Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes and Deuteromycetes diseases in peanuts. Under conditions conducive to extended infection periods or high disease pressure, additional fungicide applications beyond the number allowed by this label may be needed. Under these conditions use another fungicide registered for the crop/disease.
USE DIRECTIONS FOR SPECIFIC CROPS
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide provides control or suppression of many important diseases of peanuts. When reference is made to disease suppression, suppression can mean either erratic control from good to fair or consistent control at a level below that obtained with the best commercial disease control products.
Foliar diseases: Early Leaf Spot (Cercospora arachidicola); Late Leaf Spot (Cercosporidium personatum); Leaf Rust (Puccinia arachidis) Web Blotch (Phoma arachidicola); Leaf Scorch and Pepper Spot (Leptosphaerulina crassiasca).
Soil-borne diseases: Sclerotium Rot, White Mold, Southern Blight, Southern Stem Rot (Sclerotium rolfsii); Rhizoctonia Limb Rot, Peg Rot, Pod Rot (Rhizoctonia solani).
Rate: 7 - 8 fl oz per acre.
Disease: Cylindrocladium Black Rot (Cylindrocladium crotalariae) (Suppression Only).
Rate: 10.7 fl oz per acre.
Disease Control Program: For foliar diseases, apply the specified rate in a preventive spray schedule using a 14-day interval. For optimum control of the specified soil-borne diseases, it is recommended that four consecutive applications of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide be made at 14-day intervals. In a typical 7 spray application program, PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide should be applied in a block (sprays 3, 4, 5 and 6). If fewer than 7 calendar-based applications are typically made, the number of consecutive block sprays with PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide can be reduced accordingly. For control of soil-borne diseases when using a Leaf Spot Advisory Program schedule, apply PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide in the first advisory spray in July and continue applications at 14-day intervals for at least three applications. Soil-borne disease control will be improved with four applications. PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide must be carried by rainfall or irrigation into the root and pod zone for control of root and pod rots. Use the higher speciied use rate when conditions are favorable for severe disease pressure and/or when growing less disease resistant varieties.
For resistance management: No more than 4 foliar applications of fungicides containing sterol biosynthesis inhibitors (Group 3) are recommended per season for resistance management. Applications of fungicides with a different mode of action should be made prior to and following block applications of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide to discourage development of resistant strains of fungi. Use in conjunction with cultural practices that are known to reduce the severity of soil-borne diseases, such as proper crop rotation practices.
Restrictions: A maximum of 42.8 fl oz per acre of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide may be applied per season. If other products are used containing tebuconazole or prothioconazole, do not exceed a maximum of 0.8 lb tebuconazole/acre/season or 0.71 lb prothioconazole/acre/season. PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide may be applied up to 14 days before harvest. Do not feed hay or threshings or allow livestock to graze in treated areas. Provost 433 SC Fungicide may be applied either by ground, chemigation or aerial application equipment.
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.

- Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.
- Shoes plus socks
Resistance Management Statement
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide is a Group 3 fungicide which exhibits no known cross-resistance to other fungicide groups. However, fungal pathogens are known to develop resistance to products with the same mode of action when used repeatedly. Any fungal population may contain or develop individuals that are resistant to PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide and other Group 3 fungicides. If Group 3 fungicides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted diseases, the resistant isolates may eventually dominate the fungal population. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Such strategies may include rotation and /or tank mixing with products having different modes of action or limiting the total number of applications per season. Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor, and/or manufacturer for fungicide resistance management and/or integrated disease management recommendations for specific crops and pathogen populations. Bayer CropScience encourages responsible resistance management to ensure effective long-term control of the fungal diseases on this label.
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide may be applied by either ground or aerial application equipment. Apply in a minimum of 10 gallons of spray solution per acre by ground sprayer or in a minimum of 5 gallons of spray solution per acre by aircraft spray equipment. Check equipment calibration frequently. Complete coverage and uniform application are essential for the most effective results, especially when lower spray volumes are applied. If necessary, increase the spray volume per acre for complete crop coverage.
Prepare no more spray mixture than is necessary for the immediate operation. Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product. Maintain maximum agitation throughout the spray operation. Do not let the spray mixture stand overnight in the spray tank. Flush the spray equipment thoroughly following each use and apply the rinsate to the previously treated area or dispose of the rinsate according to local regulations.
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide Alone: Add 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. With the agitator running, add the PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide to the tank. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Begin application of the solution after the product has completely and uniformly dispersed into the mix water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide + Tank-Mix Partners: Add 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. Start the agitator running before adding any of the tank-mix partners. In general, tank-mix partners should be added in this order: products packaged in water- soluble packaging*, wettable powders, wettable granules (dry flowables), liquid flowables, liquids and emulsifiable concentrates. Always allow each tank-mix partner to become fully and uniformly dispersed before adding the next product. Provide sufficient agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.
* Note: When using PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide in tank mixtures, all products in water-soluble packaging should be added to the tank before any other tank-mix partner, including PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide. Allow the water-soluble packaging to completely disperse before adding any other tank-mix partner to the tank.
If using PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide in a tank mixture, observe all directions for use, crop/sites, use rates, dilution ratios, precautions, and restrictions; which appear on the tank-mix product label. No label dosage rate may be exceeded, and the most restrictive label precautions and limitations must be followed. This product must not be mixed with any product that prohibits such mixing. Tank mixtures or other applications of products referenced on this label are permitted only in those states in which the referenced products are registered.
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide is compatible with most insecticide, fungicide, herbicide and foliar nutrient products. However, the physical compatibility of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide with tank-mix partners should be tested before use. To determine the physical compatibility of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide with other products, use a jar test, as described below.
Using a quart jar, add the proportionate amounts of the products to 1 qt. of water. Add wettable powders and water-dispersible granular products first, then liquids, and emusifiable concentrates last. After thoroughly mixing, let stand for at least 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be remixed readily, it is physically compatible. Once compatibility has been proven, use the same procedure for adding required ingredients to the spray tank. For further information contact your local Bayer CropScience representative.
The crop safety of all potential tank mixes including additives and other pesticides on all crops has not been tested. Before applying any tank mixture not specifically recommended on this label, the safety to the target crop should be confirmed. To test for crop safety, apply PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide to the target crop in a small area and in accordance with label instructions for the target crop.
Avoid application under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when excessive spray drift may occur.
Apply PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide through irrigation equipment only to crops for which chemigation is specified on this label.
PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide alone or in combination with other pesticides, which are registered for application through irrigation systems, may be applied through irrigation systems. Apply this product only through center pivot, solid set, drip, linear, or moving wheel irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from nonuniform distribution of treated water. If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers, or other experts. Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system, unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place. A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.
1. The system must contain a functional check-valve, vacuum relief valve, and low-pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water-source contamination from backflow.
2. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check-valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.
3. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.
4. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops.
5. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch, which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.
6. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump), effectively designed, and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.
7. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.
Center Pivot Irrigation Equipment
Notes: (1) Use only with drive systems, which provide uniform water distribution. (2) Do not use end guns when chemigating PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide through center pivot systems because of non-uniform application. Determine the size of the area to be treated. Determine the time required to apply 1/8-1/2 inch of water over the area to be treated when the system and injection equipment are operated at normal pressures as recommended by the equipment manufacturer. When applying PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide through irrigation equipment use the lowest obtainable water volume while maintaining uniform distribution. Run the system at 80-95% of the manufacturer’s rated capacity. Using water, determine the injection pump output when operated at normal line pressure. Determine the amount of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide required to treat the area covered by the irrigation system. Add the required amount of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide and sufficient water to meet the injection time requirements to the solution tank. Make sure the system is fully charged with water before starting injection of the PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide solution. Time the injection to last at least as long as it takes to bring the system to full pressure. Maintain constant solution tank agitation during the injection period. Continue to operate the system until the PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide solution has cleared the sprinkler head.
Solid Set and Moving Wheel Irrigation Equipment
When applying PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide through irrigation equipment use the lowest obtainable water volume while maintaining uniform distribution. Determine the amount of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide required to treat the area covered by the irrigation system. Add the required amount of PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide into the same quantity of water used to calibrate the injection period. Operate the system at the same pressure and time interval established during the calibration. Stop injection equipment after treatment is completed. Continue to operate the system until the PROVOST 433 SC Fungicide solution has cleared the last sprinkler head.
Using Water from Public Water Systems
Public water system means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption if such system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days out of the year. Chemigation systems connected to public water systems must contain a functional, reduced-pressure zone (RPZ), back flow preventer or the functional equivalent in the water supply line upstream from the point of pesticide introduction. As an option to the RPZ, the water from the public water system should be discharged into a reservoir tank prior to pesticide introduction. There shall be a complete physical break (air gap) between the flow outlet end of the fill pipe and the top or overflow rim of the reservoir tank of at least twice the inside diameter of the fill pipe. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops or in cases where there is no water pump, when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.
Spray Drift Directions
Do not make applications when conditions favor drift beyond the target application area. When drift may be a problem, take measures to reduce drift, including:
1. Do not spray if wind speeds are or become excessive. Do not spray if wind speed is 15 mph or greater. If non-target crops are located downwind, use caution when spraying if wind is present. Do not spray if winds are gusty.
2. Use caution when conditions are favorable for drift (high temperatures, drought, and low relative humidity).
3. Do not apply when temperature inversion exists.If inversion conditions are suspected, consult with local weather services before making an application.
Treated areas may be replanted with any crop specified on this label as soon as practical after last application. For crops not listed on this label, do not plant back within 30 days of last application.
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
