CORN - SEED TREATMENT - SOILBORNE AND SEEDBORNE - FUSARIUM

General Information

Spray Volume: Orius 3.6F may be applied in a minimum of 10 gallons of spray solution per acre by ground sprayer or in a minimum of 5 gallons of spray solution per acre by aircraft spray equipment. Check equipment calibration frequently. Complete coverage and uniform application are essential for the most effective results, especially when lower spray volumes are applied. If necessary, increase the spray volume per acre for complete crop coverage.

Resistance Management

Orius 3.6F is a Group 3 fungicide which exhibits no known cross-resistance to other fungicide groups. However, fungal pathogens are known to develop resistance to products with the same mode of action when used repeatedly. Any fungal population may contain or develop individuals that are resistant to Orius 3.6F and other Group 3 fungicides. If Group 3 fungicides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted diseases, the resistance isolates may eventually dominate the fungal population. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of the product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Such strategies may include rotation and/or tank mixing with products having different modes of action or limiting the total number of applications per season. Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor, and/or manufacturer for fungicide resistance management and/or integrated disease management recommendations for specific crops and resistant disease populations. Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc. encourages responsible management to ensure effective long-term control of the fungal disease on the label.

OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS WHEN SPRAYING IN THE VICINITY OF AQUATIC AREAS SUCH AS LAKES, RESERVOIRS, RIVERS, PERMANENT STREAMS, MARSHES OR NATURAL PONDS, AND ESTUARIES.

- Apply only during alternate years in fields adjacent to aquatic areas listed.

- Do not apply by ground or air within 100 feet of aquatic areas listed.

- Do not cultivate within 10 feet of an aquatic area to allow growth of a vegetative filter strip.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

CORN

SEED TREATMENT- Corn (Sweet Corn, Field Corn, Field Corn Grown For Seed, and Popcorn)

SEED LABELING: To meet U.S. Federal Seed Act requirements, all seed treated with Orius 3.6F must be labeled:

“TREATED SEED. DO NOT USE FOR FOOD, FEED, OR OIL PURPOSES.”

“Treated with Tebuconazole.”

“Excess treated seed may be used for ethanol production only if (1) by-products are not used for livestock feed and (2) no measurable residues of pesticide remain in ethanol by-products that are used in agronomic practice.”

USE PRECAUTION: When using formulations that do not contain dye, to comply with 40 CFR 153.155, all seed treated with an economic poison must be colored to distinguish and prevent subsequent inadvertent use as a food for man or feed for animals.

DIRECTION FOR USE

- Apply as a seed treatment using standard slurry or mistype seed treatment equipment. Uniform application of seed is necessary to ensure seed safety and best disease protection. Seed should be sound and well cured prior to treatment. Product should be diluted with sufficient water to ensure complete seed coverage. Consult a seed treatment specialist regarding slurry rates recommended for the crop to be treated with Orius 3.6F. The length of control will vary depending on the rate used.
