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.

SHAR-SHIELD PPZ is a broad spectrum fungicide for the control of specified diseases in labeled crops.
Do not use this product in greenhouses or as a tree injection.
Note: When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Sharda USA LLC suggests the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association certified adjuvant.

SHAR-SHIELD PPZ must 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 must be followed. Consult your local agricultural extension advisory (disease forecasting) programs using the recommend application timing based upon environmental factors favorable for disease development.

For resistance management, SHAR-SHIELD PPZ belongs to the sterol demethylation inhibitor (DM1) class of fungicides and is classified as a Group 3 fungicide. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to SHAR-SHIELD PPZ and other Group 3 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides/bactericides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed.
To delay fungicide/bactericide resistance, take one or more of the following steps:
• Rotate the use of SHAR-SHIELD PPZ or other Group 3 fungicides within a growing season sequence with different groups that control the same pathogens.
• Use tank mixtures with fungicide from a different group that are equally effective on the target pest when such use is permitted. Use at least the minimum application rate as labeled by the manufacturer.
• Adopt an integrated disease management program for fungicide use that includes scouting, uses historical information related to pesticide use, and crop rotation, and which considers host plant resistance, impact of environmental conditions on disease development, disease thresholds, as well as
cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
• Where possible, make use of predictive disease models to effectively time fungicide applications. Note that using predictive models alone is not sufficient to manage resistance.
• Monitor treated fungal/bacterial populations for resistance development.
• Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisor for any additional pesticide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens.

• For further information or to report suspected resistance contact Sharda USA LLC. You can also contact your pesticide distributor or university extension specialist to report resistance.

For best results, sufficient water volume should be used to provide thorough coverage. In most situations,
Sharda Propiconazole is most effective when applied and allowed to dry before a rainfall. Avoid application under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when excessive spray drift may occur. Do not apply directly to humans or animals.
Aerial Application: For those crops other than tree crops where aerial applications are indicated, apply in a minimum of 2 gals. of water per acre, unless specified otherwise in the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS section of this label. For tree crops, apply a minimum of 5 to 10 gals. of water per acre using the higher volume on large trees unless specified otherwise in the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS section of this label.
Ground Application: For tree crops, apply a minimum of 50 gals. of water per acre unless specified otherwise in the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS section of this label. For all other crops, apply SHAR-SHIELD PPZ by ground equipment in a minimum of 10 gals. of water per acre unless specified otherwise in the APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS section of this label. Apply SHAR-SHIELD PPZ through irrigation equipment only to crops for which chemigation is specified on this label or on approved supplemental labeling provided by Sharda USA LLC. Refer to crop specific use directions for application rates, timing and frequency of application. When applying this product by chemigation, do not exceed labeled rates or apply more frequently than specified for conventional application methods. SHAR-SHIELD PPZ, alone or in combination with other pesticides that are registered for application through irrigation systems, may be applied through irrigation systems. Apply in 0.1 to 0.25 inches of water.
Chemigation with excessive water may negatively impact efficacy of the product.
Precaution(s): Do not inject SHAR-SHIELD PPZ at full strength or deterioration of valves and seals may occur. Use a dilution ratio of at least 10 parts water to 1 part SHAR-SHIELD PPZ. SHAR-SHIELD PPZ is corrosive to many seal materials. Leather seals are best EPDM or silicone rubber seals can be used but should be replaced once a year. Do not use Viton, Buna-N, Neoprene, or PVC seals. SHAR-SHIELD PPZ, 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, hand move, or moving wheel irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.
Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform 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 labelprescribed 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.
