Ranman 400 SC
MIXING AND SPRAYING
RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE can be used effectively in dilute or concentrate sprays. Thorough, uniform coverage is essential for disease control.
NOTE: Slowly invert container several times to assure uniform mixture of formulation before adding this product to the spray tank.
Dosage rates on this label indicate fluid ounces of RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE per acre, unless otherwise stated. Under conditions favorable for disease development, the highest rate specified and shortest application interval should be used. For best product performance in all applications utilizing water volumes up to 60 gallons per acre, an organosilicone surfactant should be added according to the manufacturer’s label recommendations in order to improve spray coverage when the disease infection is severe. However, a non-ionic surfactant or a blend of an organosilicone and a non-ionic surfactant may be used according to the manufacturer’s label when disease infection is moderate or light. Do not use a surfactant in applications to grapes or in soil drench application to green house grown bell peppers or tomato greenhouse transplants.
RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE may be applied with all types of spray equipment normally used for ground and aerial applications. The required amount of RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE should be added slowly into the spray tank during filling. With concentrate sprays, pre-mix the required amount of RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE in a clean container and add to the spray tank as it is being filled. Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations. DO NOT allow spray mixture to stand overnight or for prolonged periods. Prepare only the amount of spray required for immediate use. Spraying equipment should be thoroughly cleaned immediately after the application. Apply RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE in sufficient water to obtain adequate coverage of the foliage. Gallonage to be used will vary with crop and amount of plant growth. Spray volume will usually range from 20 to 100 gallons per acre (200 to 1000 liters per hectare) for dilute sprays, and 5 to 10 gallons per acre (50 to 100 liters per hectare) for concentrate ground and aerial sprays. For aerial applications, apply RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE in a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre. Application through sprinkler irrigation systems is not recommended unless specific directions are given for a crop. See application and calibration instruction below.
TANK MIX COMPATIBILITY
RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is physically compatible (no nozzle or screen blockage) with many products recommended for control of diseases and insects on vegetable crops. Read and follow all manufacturer’s label recommendations for the tank mix companion product. It is the applicator’s responsibility to ensure that the companion product is EPA approved for use on the intended crop. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is generally compatible with other insecticides, fungicides, fertilizers and micronutrient products provided sufficient free water is available for dispersion of all the tank mix products. However, the physical compatibility of RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE with tank mix partners must be evaluated before use. Conduct a jar test with intended tank-mix pesticides prior to preparation of large volumes. Use the following procedure: 1) Pour the recommended proportions of the products into a suitable container of water, 2) Mix thoroughly and 3) Allow to stand 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be re-mixed readily, it is considered physically compatible. Any physical incompatibility in the jar test indicates that RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE should not be used in the tank-mix.
CROP RESPONSE RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is not phytotoxic to the crop or succeeding crops when applied according to label instructions. INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is an excellent disease control agent when used according to label directions for control of several Oomycete fungi. Although RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE has limited systemic activity, it should be utilized as a protectant fungicide and applied before the disease infects the crop. Depending upon the level of disease pressure, good protection of th crop against disease can be expected over a period of 7 to 10 days. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is recommended for use as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, which may include the use of disease-resistant crop varieties, cultural practices, crop rotation, biological disease control agents, pest scouting and disease forecasting systems aimed at preventing economic pest damage. Practices known to reduce disease development should be followed. Consult your state cooperative extension service or local agricultural authorities for additional IPM strategies established in your area. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE may be used in State Agricultural Extension advisory (disease forecasting) programs that recommend application timing based upon environmental factors that favor disease development.
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT Some plant pathogens are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for disease control. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE’s mode/target site of action is complex III of fungal respiration: ubiquinone reductase, Qi site, FRAC code 21. A disease management program that includes alternation or tank mixes between RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE and other labeled fungicides that have a different mode of action and/or control pathogens not controlled by RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is essential to prevent disease resistant pathogens populations from developing. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE should not be utilized continuously nor tank mixed with fungicides that have shown to have developed fungal resistance to the target disease.
Since pathogens differ in their potential to develop resistance to fungicides, follow the directions outlined in the “Directions For Use” section of this label for specific resistance management strategies for each crop. Consult with your Federal or State Cooperative Extension Service representatives for guidance on the proper use of RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE in programs that seek to minimize the occurrence of disease resistance. RANMAN 400SC FUNGICIDE is not cross-resistant with other classes of fungicides that have different modes of action.
