Hoist specialty fungicide is a systemic, protectant and curative fungicide recommended for the control of specific diseases in turfgrass, landscape ornamentals and non-Commercial tree fruits and vines, including apples, stonefruit and grapes. Optimum disease control is achieved when the fungicide is applied in a regularly scheduled preventative spray program.
Use Rate Determination: Carefully read, understand and follow label use rates and restrictions. For proper application, determine the size of the area to be treated, the recommended label use rate and the gallonage to be applied to the area. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured area. Careful calibration of spray equipment is recommended prior to use.
Handling: The enclosed pouches of Hoist are water-soluble. Do not allow pouches to become wet prior to adding to the spray tank. Do not handle the pouches with wet hands or wet gloves. Always reseal overwrap bag to protect remaining unused pouches. Do not remove water-soluble pouches from overwrap except to add directly to the spray tank.
Compatibility: Hoist is compatible with most commonly used fungicides, insecticides, growth regulators, micronutrients and spray adjuvants. When preparing tank mixes, user should consult spray compatibility charts or State Cooperative Extension Service Specialists prior to actual use.
NOTE: Hoist is compatible with boron and spray oils; however, the water soluble pouches must be completely dissolved before adding spray oils or products containing boron to spray mixtures.
Ground Equipment: Application equipment should be properly calibrated and provide uniform spray coverage.
Hand or Pressurized Sprayers: For best control of labeled diseases, achieve thorough coverage of all plant parts on a protectant application schedule.
Sprinkler Irrigation: Hoist must be applied on a regular protectant fungicide schedule, not an irrigation schedule. Apply only through solid set or hand-move sprinkler irrigation systems. Do not apply product through any other type of irrigation system.
Crop injury, lack of effectiveness or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water. Greatest efficacy is achieved when the application of treated water does not exceed 1/4 inch per acre per application.
Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place.
- Hoist should be used in conjunction with turf management practices that promote good plant health and optimum disease control. The key to selecting a fungicide is the proper diagnosis of the organism causing the disease. Diagnostic kits, extension experts, or other identification methods should be used when developing disease control strategies.
- Optimum disease control is achieved when Hoist is applied in a preventative disease control program at a rate of 0.5 to 1.2 ounces per 1000 square feet.
- Hoist should be applied in sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage. For foliar diseases, use approximately one gallon of water per 1,000 square feet. Two to three gallons of spray solution per 1,000 square feet should be used to control diseases causing root and crown rots.
- Under optimum conditions for disease development, the spray interval between applications of Hoist should be reduced.
- Unless otherwise specified, when disease pressure is high or when used as a curative, use higher rates of Hoist and shorter intervals. Under light to moderate disease pressure, apply Hoist at the low use rate and/or longer application intervals.
