Zing! is a broad-spectrum protectant fungicide. Optimum disease control is achieved when the fungicide is used according to label directions and applied in a regularly scheduled preventative spray program. The addition of an agricultural surfactant will improve fungicide performance by providing a more uniform spray deposit, increased foliar redistribution, and improved fungicide retention during periods of wet weather. The use of Zing! is compatible with the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and programs that attempt to minimize disease resistance to fungicides. Unlike single-site mode of action fungicides which are at risk from disease resistance, Zing!, with a multi-site mode of action, may be used to delay or prevent the development of resistance to single site fungicides. Consult with your Federal or State Cooperative Extension Service representatives for guidance on the proper use of Zing! in IPM and resistance management programs.

Do not use in greenhouses.
Users must carefully read, understand and follow use restrictions prior to using Zing!.
Do not apply this product within 150 feet for aerial applications, or 25 feet for ground applications of marine/estuarine water bodies, unless there is an untreated buffer area of that width between the area to be treated and the water body.

For proper application, determine the number of acres to be treated, the specified label use rate and the spray volume to be applied per acre. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured acreage. Carefully calibrate spray equipment before use.

For resistance management, please note that Zing! contains both a Group 22 [Zoxamide] and a Group M5 [Chlorothalonil] fungicide. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Gavel 75DF and other Group 22 or M5 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay fungicide resistance, take one or more of the following steps:
Rotate the use of Zing! or other Group 22 and M5 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, predictive modeling, 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, and monitor treated fungal populations for resistance development.
Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor or Gowan Company at 1-888-478-0798 for any additional pesticide resistancemanagement and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens, or to report suspected resistance. Where possible, make use of predictive disease models to effectively time fungicide/bactericide applications. Note that using predictive models alone is not sufficient to manage resistance.

Mixing, Loading and Applying
Dosage rates on this label indicate ounces of Zing! per acre, unless otherwise stated. Under conditions favoring disease development the highest rate specified and shortest application interval should be used. Zing! is intended to be diluted into water and then applied to crops by typical agricultural spraying techniques. Always apply Zing! in sufficientwater to obtain thorough, uniform coverage of foliage and crop surfaces intended to be protected from disease. Spray volume to be used willvary with crop and amount of plant growth. Spray volume should normally range from 20 to 150 gallon per acres (200 to 1400 liters per hectare)for dilute sprays and 5 to 10 gallons per acre (50 to 100 liters per hectare) for concentrate ground sprays and aircraft application.Slowly invert container several times to assure uniform mixture. Measure the required amount of Zing! and pour into the spray tank during filling.Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations.

Tank Mixing
It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products are registered for the intended use. Read and follow the applicable restrictionsand limitations and directions for use on all product labels involved in tank mixing. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.Do not combine Zing! in spray tank with pesticides, surfactants or fertilizers, unless your prior use has shown the combination physicallycompatible, effective and non-injurious under your conditions of use. Do not combine Zing! with Dipel ES-NT Biological Insecticide  Emulsifiable Suspension (EPA Reg. 73049-30), Dipel ES Biological Insecticide Emulsifiable Suspension (EPA Reg. 73049-17), Surfactant Triton B-1956, Latron B-1956 or Latron AG-98 as phytotoxicity may result from the combination when applied to the crops on this label. Do not tank mix Zing! with oil, or with any adjuvants which contain oil as their principal ingredient. When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Gowan Companyrecommends the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association (CPDA) certified adjuvant. Do not use with Copper-Count N (EPAReg. 10465-3) in concentrated spray suspensions.The additions of agricultural surfactants to Zing! sprays may improve initial spray deposits, fungicide redistribution and weatherability.Suspend Zing! into the spray solution prior to adding an adjuvant. Read and carefully observe the precautionary statements and all other information appearing on both product labels prior to spray preparation.

Ground: Thorough coverage foliar sprays generally result in optimum disease control. To achieve good coverage use proper spray pressure, gallonage per acre, nozzles (generally hollow cone), disc (generally D-5 to D-7), nozzle spacing, and tractor speed. Consult spray nozzle and accessory catalogues for specific information on proper equipment calibration.
Spray Volume: Use adequate amounts of water to insure thorough and complete coverage. Dense canopies require greater spray penetration. Higher spray volumes may be required to adequately cover inner leaves and vines in lower portions of dense canopies. DO NOT USE LESS THAN 5 GALLONS PER ACRE IN CALIFORNIA OR 2 GALLONS IN ALL OTHER STATES. Additional requirements for ground boom application: Do not apply with a nozzle height greater than 4 feet above the crop canopy.
Aerial: A uniform initial spray deposit over the crop canopy generally results in optimum disease control. Pre-check each aircraft for droplet size, uniformity of spray pattern, swath width, and spray volume. During aerial application, human flaggers are prohibited unless in totally enclosed vehicles.
Nozzle selection: Hollow cone brass nozzles with a D-series orifice disc and core (whirl plate) are recommended. Nozzles should point straight down or slightly backward.
Swath width: For most field and vegetable crops, swaths just beyond the wingspan of 36 to 40 feet for light aircraft and up to 45 feet for heavier aircraft are suggested. Optimum swath for helicopters is usually 5 to 10 feet beyond normal boom length.
Spray Volume: Aerial applications are to be made in a minimum of two (2) gallons of water per acre. On potatoes, 2 to 3 gallons of spray per acre are generally optimal. Do not use less than 5 gallons per acre in California.
Altitude: Position the spray boom 5 to 10 feet above the crop canopy.
Flagging: Mark swaths with permanent flags at the end of the field. Measure swaths accurately with a chain or other device except when rows can be accurately counted.
