TREES AND ORCHARD CROPS: PEACH, NECTARINE, APRICOT, ETC. - (LEAF CURL CORNYNEUM BLIGHT-SHOTHOLE)

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

Mainsail 6.0 F is an excellent disease control agent when used according to label directions for control of a broad spectrum of plant diseases. Mainsail 6.0 F is recommended for use in programs that are compatible with the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which include the use of disease resistant crop varieties, cultural practices, pest scouting and disease forecasting systems that reduce unnecessary applications of pesticides.

Mainsail 6.0 F is effective for strategic use in programs that attempt to minimize disease resistance to fungicides. Some other fungicides that are at risk from disease resistance exhibit a single-site mode of fungicidal action. Mainsail 6.0 F, 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 Mainsail 6.0 F in programs that seek to minimize the occurrence of disease resistance to other fungicides.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS

Use of this product on home lawns is prohibited.

Agricultural Use Sites Only (sod farms, farms, forests, nurseries and greenhouses): This product must not be applied 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.

Do not combine Mainsail 6.0 F in the spray tank with pesticides, surfactants or fertilizers, unless prior use has shown the combination physically compatible, effective, and noninjurious under your conditions of use. Do not combine Mainsail 6.0 F with Dipel or Latron B-1956 as phytotoxicity may result from the combination when applied to some species on the label. The required amount of Mainsail 6.0 F should be added slowly into the spray tank during filling. With concentrate sprays, premix the required amount of Mainsail 6.0 F in a clean container and add to the spray tank as it is being filled. Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

TREES AND ORCHARD CROPS: PEACH, NECTARINE, APRICOT, ETC. - (LEAF CURL CORNYNEUM BLIGHT-SHOTHOLE)

Apply Mainsail 6.0 F in sufficient water and with proper calibration to obtain uniform coverage of tree canopy. Application with ground equipment is preferable to aerial application because ground applications generally give better coverage of the tree canopy. If application with ground equipment is not feasible, Mainsail 6.0 F may be applied with aircraft using at least 20 gallons of spray per acre. When concentrate sprays are used or when treating non-bearing or immature trees, the lower rate of Mainsail 6.0 F may be used.

Do not allow livestock to graze in treated areas.

FOR PEACH, NECTARINE, APRICOT, ETC. - (LEAF CURL CORNYNEUM BLIGHT-SHOTHOLE)

For best control of both diseases, apply at leaf fall in late autumn, using sufficient water and proper sprayer calibration to obtain uniform coverage. When conditions favor high disease levels, use the high rate of application and apply once or twice more in mid to late winter before budswell. If the leaf fall application is not practical, application of Mainsail 6.0 F for control of leaf curl may be made at any time prior to budswell the following spring. Where Coryneum blight (shothole) occurs, also apply at budbreak to protect newly emerging leaves and at shuck split to prevent fruit infections.

The minimum re-treatment interval is 10 days.
