ALMOND - BLOSSOM BLIGHT
Indar 2F fungicide is a systemic fungicide with preventative and curative properties used for the control of specific diseases listed on this label. For optimal disease control with Indar 2F, apply sprays on a preventive spray program.
Indar 2F is considered not hazardous to bees, including those which are actively foraging in the area during application, when used as directed.
A non-polymer containing spray adjuvant approved for use with registered pesticide products may be added to spray solutions according to manufacturer's use instructions to achieve optimum disease control.
Do not apply Indar 2F in greenhouses.
Indar 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 Indar 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.
Do not make ground or aerial applications within 75 feet of streams, rivers, ponds, lakes or reservoirs.
Thorough coverage sprays generally result in optimum disease control. To achieve good coverage use proper spray pressure, gallonage per acre, nozzles, nozzle spacing and tractor speed. Consult spray nozzle and accessory catalogues for specific information on proper equipment calibration. For tree fruits and nuts, apply the same amount of Indar 2F per acre in either dilute or concentrate sprays.
Apply in a minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre on annual crops and 10 gallons of water per acre on perennial tree fruits and nuts. Do not apply Indar 2F under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when excessive spray drift may occur. Do not apply directly to humans or animals. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Flagmen and loaders should wash thoroughly before eating, drinking, or smoking and at the end of each day's spray operation.
Apply Indar 2F through properly equipped chemigation systems for disease control in cranberry on a regular protectant fungicide schedule. Follow use directions for cranberry in the Uses section of this label. Do not apply Indar 2F by chemigation to other labeled crops.
General Directions for Sprinkler Chemigation: Apply Indar 2F only through overhead sprinkler irrigation systems that will apply water uniformly, including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Sprinkler systems that deliver a low coefficient of uniformity such as certain water drive units are not recommended.
Apply Indar 2F to orchards using a dilute or concentrate spray.
Dilute Spray: Dilute or thorough coverage applications are based upon the amount of spray solution necessary to thoroughly wet the trees until spray run-off. To determine the number of gallons of dilute spray required per acre, contact your state agricultural experiment station, certified pest control advisor, or extension specialist for assistance.
Concentrate Spray: Concentrate spray applications assume all of the tree is uniformly covered with spray solution but not to the point of run-off.
A lower spray volume is used to deliver the same application rate per acre as used for a dilute spray. Use a minimum of 50 gallons of spray solution per acre for concentrate sprays with Indar 2F.
Plantback intervals (PBI) for crops without primary label uses (such as rotational crops), where the last application of the product expended is <0.188 lb active per acre, the PBI must be 35 days. Where the last application of the product expended is 0.188 to 1 lb active per acre, the PBI must be 210 days.
If conditions are favorable for disease development, apply again at full bloom and at petal fall.
Apply aerially in a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre or by ground in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre.
- Based upon a standard of 300 gallons of dilute spray per acre or the equivalent amount of product per acre as a concentrate spray.
- Minimum Re-Treatment Interval: 10 days
- Do not apply this product by chemigation to almond.
