MACADAMIA - ANTHRACNOSE

General Information

Instructions and Information

Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss may be applied as an aerial, ground dilute or ground concentrate spray unless specifically directed otherwise in the specific crop use directions. The per acre use rate of Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss is applicable for both dilute and concentrate spraying. Depending upon the equipment used and the specific crop, the spray volume applied per acre will differ. Refer to the Minimum Spray Mix Volume Table. Complete spray coverage is essential to assure optimum performance from Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss. When treating by aerial application, or with low volume application equipment, unless you have had specific previous experience, it is advisable to test for compatibility and tolerance to crop injury prior to full-scale commercial utilization.

While volume is important in obtaining full spray coverage, often factors such as foliage density, environmental conditions and sprayer calibrations, have a greater impact. Always be sure that sprayers are calibrated to spray equipment manufacturer’s specifications and environmental conditions are within those recommended by state and local regulatory authorities.

Consult this Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss label for specific rates and timing of application by crop. Where application rates are provided in a range (3 to 6 pounds), the higher rates are recommended when rainfall is heavy and/or disease pressure high. Under heavy disease pressure or when conditions favor such, use the higher rate and shorter spray intervals specified for each crop. In addition, use the higher rates for large mature tree crops.

When mixing, fill spray tank half full with water. Add Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss to tank while hydraulic or mechanical agitation is operating and continue filling with water. Spreaders, stickers (cleared for application to growing crops,) nutrients, etc. should be added last. If compatibility is in question, use the Compatibility Jar Test before mixing a whole tank.

NOTE: Do not apply Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss in a spray solution having a pH of less than 6.5 as phytotoxicity may occur.

NOTE: If tank-mixing Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss with a benzimidazole type fungicide, do a jar test to check for full compatibility. Do not allow the spray mixture to remain in the tank for an extended period of time.

NOTE: Do not tank mix Cuprofix Ultra 40 Disperss with Aliette fungicide unless appropriate precautions have been taken to buffer the spray solution or severe phytotoxicity may result.

NOTE: This product may be reactive on masonry and metal surfaces such as galvanized roofing. Avoid contact with metal surfaces. Do not spray on cars, houses, lawn furniture or other metallic surfaces.

NOTE: Agricultural chemicals may perform in an unpredictable manner when tank mixed, especially where several products are involved. Reduced effect on pests or crop injury may occur. Unless recommended on the label or by a state/local expert or the user has direct experience, tank mixing should not be undertaken. If tank mixes are used, observe the most restrictive of the labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixture.

NOTE: It must be determined in the selection process if proper application equipment is available and if the waste associated with its use can be properly handled. Materials used in the construction of application equipment is also an important factor as agricultural chemicals are often reactive with soft metals such as aluminum and even some synthetic materials, such as plastics, rubbers, etc. Therefore it is necessary when working with equipment containing these materials that they are thoroughly flushed with clean water after each day’s use.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation (chemigation) system using aluminum parts or components as damage to the system may occur. Such application is prohibited regardless of whether the irrigation system is flushed with water after use of this product.

Apply this product only through one or more of the following types of systems: sprinkler including center pivot, lateral move, traveler, big gun, plastic pipe solid set system(s) which contain no aluminum parts or components. Do not apply this product through any other type or irrigation system.

Florida: When using pesticide application equipment such as Curtec or other similar sprayers, which are capable of obtaining thorough coverage at low volumes, applications as low as 20 gpa of spray volume may be used.

Refer the specified label of Minimum Spray Mix Volume (Gallons) Per Acre.

Refer the supplemental label on this information.
