APPLES - EXTENDED APPLICATION

General Information

General Information

Clevis is a systemic, protectant and curative fungicide recommended for the control of specific diseases mentioned on the label. Optimum disease control is achieved when the fungicide is applied in a regularly scheduled preventative spray program.

Restrictions

Users should carefully read, understand and follow all use restriction prior to using Clevis.

Handling Precautions for Water Soluble Packets: Do not remove water soluble packet from overpack except for immediate use. Do not allow water soluble packet to come into contact with water prior to use. Do not handle water soluble packet with wet hands or wet gloves. Do not open water soluble packets. Partial use of packets is not allowed. Carefully reseal overpack containing unopened water soluble packets and protect package from moisture.

Use Rate Determination

Carefully read, understand and follow label use rates and restrictions. Under low disease conditions, minimum label use rates per application can be used while maximum label rates and shortened spray schedules are recommended for severe or threatening disease conditions.

Apples and Grapes: For proper application, determine the number of acres to be treated, the recommended label use rate and the gallonage to be applied per acre. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured acreage. Careful calibration of spray equipment is recommended prior to use.

Turf and Ornamentals: For proper application, determine the number of sq ft to be treated, the recommended label use rate and the gallonage to be applied per 1000 sq ft. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured area. Careful calibration of spray equipment is recommended prior to use.

Application

Ground: Thorough coverage sprays generally result in optimum disease control. To achieve good coverage use proper spray pressure, gallonage per acre, nozzles, nozzle spacing and tractor speed. Consult spray nozzle and accessory catalogues for specific information on proper equipment calibration.

Hand Sprayers: Thoroughly spray plant foliage until runoff.

Aerial: Apply in a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre. Avoid application under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when excessive spray drift may occur.

Chemigation: Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

Disease Monitoring

Clevis is a systemic, protectant and curative fungicide. If not applied on a routine protectant spray schedule, crops should be scouted on a weekly basis. Fungicide applications should be made at the recommended label use rate and spray schedule, at the first sign of disease, report of disease in the area, or during environmental conditions favorable for disease development.

Foliar Applications

Where EBDC Products Used Allow the SAME Maximum Amount of Active Ingredient Per Acre Per Season: If more than one product containing an EBDC active ingredient (maneb, mancozeb, or metiram) is used on a crop during the same growing season, the cumulative amount of EBDC active ingredient applied per acre from all products cannot exceed the maximum seasonal allowed of active ingredient per acre allowed for any one product.

Where EBDC Products Used Allow DIFFERENT Maximum Amounts of Active Ingredient Per Acre Per Season: If more than one product containing an EBDC active ingredient (maneb, mancozeb, or metiram) is used on a crop during the same growing season, the cumulative amount of EBDC active ingredient applied per acre from all products cannot exceed the maximum seasonal amount of active ingredient per acre allowed for any one product.

Seed Treatment

In addition to the maximum number of foliar applications permitted by the formula stated above, a single application for seed treatment may be made on crops, which have registered seed treatment uses.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions
