Seed treatment for barley, brassica vegetables, bulb vegetables, corn, cotton, cucurbit vegetables, dried shelled peas and beans, edible-podded legume vegetables, leafy vegetables, oats, peanut, rapeseed, rice, root and tuber vegetables, rye, sorghum, soybean, sunflower, triticale and wheat Xemium 2.72 fungicide ST is not for sale, distribution, or use in Nassau and Suffolk counties in New York State.
Xemium 2.72 fungicide ST is a broad- spectrum fungicide that provides preventive seed and seedling protection from several seed and soilborne diseases. Make all applications according to the use directions in this label. Use the higher rates of Xemium 2.72 when disease pressure isexpected to be high.
Fluxapyroxad, the active ingredient of Xemium 2.72, belongs to the group of respiration inhibitors classified by the U.S. EPA and Canada PMRA as a target-site-of-action Group 7 fungicide. Because of the minimal amounts of Xemium 2.72 applied to the seed, the potential for development of resistance is low. Therefore, Xemium 2.72 seed treatments can be followed by foliar use. Follow resistance management guidelines of foliar use fungicides containing fluxapyroxad as specified on the respective labels.
For use at commercial treatment facilities. Not for use on-farm. Apply Xemium 2.72 as a water-based mixture using standard slurry or mist-type seed treatment applicationequipment. The exact amount of water needed to provide the mixture or slurry rate (ml/100 kg or oz/cwt of seed) for optimum coverage is difficult to predict because weather conditions (hot or cold), seed type and surface, and equipment used all have a bearing on coverage. Consult a seed treatment specialist regarding slurry rates recommended for the crop seed to be treated with Xemium 2.72. The required amount of Xemium 2.72 must then be diluted with the specified amount of water that will provide uniform and complete coverage on the seed surface. Uniform application on seed and complete seed coverage are necessary for seed safety and best disease protection. Seed must be of a good quality and well cleaned before treatment.
The purchaser of Xemium 2.72 fungicide ST is responsible for ensuring that all seed treated with this product are adequately dyed with a suitable color to prevent accidental use as food for man or feed for animals. Refer to 21CFR, Part 2.25. Use an EPA-approved dye or colorant that imparts an unnatural color to the seed. Any dye or colorant added to treated seed must be cleared for use under 40CFR, Part 180.900, “Exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance”. Federal regulations have established official tolerances or exemptions from tolerances for residues on food and forage crops that must not be exceeded when the product (dye or colorant) is used at specified rates. Consult the seed treatment specialist for calibration and operation procedures of the seed treatment equipment being used. Mechanical agitation is required for proper mixing of Xemium 2.72. Prepare no more mixture of Xemium 2.72 than is needed for immediate treating.
Add 3/4 of the required volume of water to the mix tank. With agitation running, add the required amount of Xemium 2.72 in the tank along with other seed treatment components. Add the remaining 1/4 amount of the required volume of water. Use the mixing sequence that follows. Agitate thoroughly before and during application.
Xemium 2.72 with Tank Mix Partners
Xemium 2.72 mixes easily with water and other waterbased seed treatments. When using Xemium 2.72 in a tank mixture with seed treatment products, observe all directions for use, crops/sites, use rates, dilution ratios, precautions, and limitations that appear on the tank mix partner label. Label dosage or application rate must not be exceeded, and the most restrictive label precautions and limitations must be followed. Xemium 2.72 must not be mixed with any product that prohibits such mixing. All applications must be made according to the use directions. When mixing Xemium 2.72 with seed treatment products, test the compatibility before use by conducting a jar test as follows:
1. Mix all intended seed treatments with the appropriate amount of water in a clear glass container.
2. Mix well and allow to sit for 1 hour.
3. Remix and observe for incompatibility. Physical compatibility is only part of compatibility. Testing also needs to be done with the seed to make sure the combination of products does not have detrimental effects on the seed.
Tank Mixing Instructions
1. Add 3/4 of the required amount of water to the mix tank and turn on the agitation. Mechanical agitation is preferred.
2. Use the following mixing sequence: dye or colorant, wettable powders, soluble powders, flowable formulations, emulsifiable concentrates, and remaining 1/4 of the required water. The 1/4 of the required water as the last item for addition to the premix tank can be used as rinsate for the chemical container or to adjust the total slurry to compensate for water displacement by powdered products.
3. Maintain agitation until the entire slurry mixture has been used.
4. Ensure that seed is dry before bagging.
SEED LABELING NOTE: Federal law requires that bags of treated seed shall be labeled with the following: “This seed has been treated with Xemium 2.72 fungicide ST containing fluxapyroxad. DO NOT use for food, feed or oil purposes. Store away from food and feedstuffs.” The seed label should also include the following: “Excess treated seed may be used for ethanol production only if (1) by-products are not used for livestock feed and (2) no measurable residues of pesticide remain in ethanol by-products that are used in agronomic practice.”
