STRAWBERRY - RED STELE, LEATHER ROT, ETC. (FOLIAR SPRAY)
GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Apply this product by various application methods, including foliar spray (aerial and ground), soil drench, soil incorporation and bare root dip. For foliar sprays, apply this product with sufficient water volumes for adequate coverage of foliage, according to crop and growth stage.
Make applications prior to disease development in conjunction with good cultural management practices. Do not exceed the use rates or apply more frequently than the specified interval or plant injury can occur. Do not apply to plants that are dormant or heat or moisture stressed. To avoid undesirable copper phytotoxicity, do not make foliar applications to plants treated with copper-based compounds at less than 20 day intervals unless instructed to do so by your crop consultant. Allow foliage to dry completely after application. Do not apply when conditions favor wet tissue for prolonged periods (>4 hours).
See label for tank mix information.
Begin application during active plant growth. Repeat on a 2-4 week interval when conditions favor disease development.
Perennial planting: Start Spring applications when the plants start active growth. Repeat application at 2-4 week interval if disease conditions persist or reoccur.
If using Red Stele susceptible varieties or if disease pressure is severe, use higher rates, shortest application time and maximum number of applications.
Do not apply more than 6 times per crop cycle. For Leather Rot start applications at 10% bloom and early fruit set. Continue applications on a 7-14 day interval when conditions favor disease development. Under heavy disease pressure, use the higher rate and apply on a 7 day interval. Do not apply more than 6 times per crop cycle.
Grey mold and Anthracnose suppression using Fungi-Phite requires the use of the high application rates and is most effectively applied when tank mixed with other registered fungicides.
Suppression of Foliar Fungal and Bacterial Diseases (Anthracnose, Rhizopus): Not for use in California unless accompanied by a supplemental label.
