CUCURBITS - PHYTOPHTHORA CAPSICI
Reveille is a systemic product, which contains phosphorus acid. Phosphorus acid is effective in prevention and control of downy mildew and Phytophthora, by activation of the plants’ natural resistance mechanism, as well as by direct activity on the fungus.
Reveille is intended for use as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system. When used in conjunction with good cultural management practices and as part of a complete disease control program, Reveille will control downy mildew, purple blotch, late blight, brown rot (of citrus) and root rot in field crops, vineyards and orchards. In order to achieve maximum results in controlling the disease, spraying should be carried out before the appearance of the disease or when disease is first observed. Applications should be initiated when environmental conditions are favorable for disease development. The preharvest interval is 0 days for this product.
MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Apply in sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage. Fill spray tank halfway with clean water. Add the required amount of Reveille to the tank as indicated in the table on the label. While agitating, add the remaining amount of water. Apply solution directly to foliage, unless directed otherwise in the application rate table. For optimum control, thorough coverage is required.
Begin spraying when environmental conditions are favorable for the development of disease or as indicated below. Do not apply more than the following application rates. Unless specified, there is no limit to the number of applications.
Drench application of 4 pints per 100 gallons water to transplants prior to transplanting or a 5 fl. oz/1000 feet of row in furrow drench at planting followed by weekly foliar applications at 6 pints/acre beginning 2 weeks after planting will suppress this disease.
Do not apply on plants when they are under water stress, or during severe weather conditions such as high or very low temperatures.
