MISCELLANEOUS (MACADAMIA) - ANTHRACNOSE

General Information

INFORMATION

The control of diseases with fungicides is based on PREVENTION. Plant surfaces must be completely covered with the fungicide to successfully prevent infection. Copper pesticides are considered preventative, not curative of plant diseases. Use the highest indicated rate when disease incidence is high or expected to be, depending on rainfall and temperature. The lower rate is suitable for general preventive sprays under normal conditions. Since weather conditions and disease incidence vary, consult your Agricultural Extension Service for timing and initial application.

Add the desired amount of LIQUI-COP and continue filling the tank/container. If applied with other products, add LIQUI-COP last. Agitate the tank during mixing and application until tank is empty.
