Resistance Management

Enable 2F belongs to the sterol demethylation inhibitor (DMI) class of fungicides or target site of action Group 3 fungicide. Since certain fungi can develop resistance to this class of products, use Enable 2F as part of a resistance management strategy that includes alternation and/or mixing with fungicides of different target site of action. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for resistance management strategies that are appropriate for your disease management program.

Use Rate Determination

Carefully read, understand and follow label use rates and restrictions. Under low disease conditions, use minimum application rates, while maximum application rates and shortened spray schedules are for severe or threatening disease conditions. For proper application, determine the number of acres to be treated, the label use rate and the gallonage to be applied per acre. Prepare only the amount of spray solution required to treat the measured acreage. Carefully calibrate spray equipment prior to use.
