FOR GENERAL AGRICULTURAL USE

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION:

CONTANS WG is applied directly to the soil surface and incorporated into the upper soil level. It is intended for use on agricultural and greenhouse soils used for the production of plants that are susceptible to infection by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor. Plants susceptible to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor are leafy vegetables, brassica vegetables, fruiting vegetables, bulb vegetables, cereal grains, legume vegetables, oil seeds, herbs and spices and ornamental plants. CONTANS WG may be applied directly to the soil prior to planting, at planting or during transplanting. CONTANS WG is a water dispersible granule for the reduction/control of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor in agricultural soils. CONTANS WG is intended for use as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system. When used in conjunction with good cultural management practices and as part of a complete disease control program, CONTANS WG reduces/controls soil infestations of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor.

See your CONTANS WG distributor for tank mix compatibility.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS:

CONTANS WG is applied directly to the soil surface, using conventional spray equipment. Thorough spray coverage is needed to provide a uniform deposit of CONTANS WG on the soil. The treated soil surface must be incorporated into the upper soil layer by means of water or disc, better cultivator, tiller or other similar equipment. Maintain agitation. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight or for prolonged periods. CONTANS WG is less effective in soils with temperatures over 85°F and under 35°F. The active ingredient of CONTANS WG is exempt from the requirement of a tolerance for residues in and on all food commodities, and can be used in any agricultural soil without rotational crop restrictions.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FOR GENERAL AGRICULTURAL USE

Apply CONTANS WG at a rate of 1 to 4 lbs. per acre to the soil prior to or at planting or at time of transplant. CONTANS WG may also be applied to plant debris that remains in the field after harvest, prior to replant of a susceptible crop. If incorporation will displace the soil greater than two inches, increase the application rate to 3 to 6 lbs. per acre.
