DIRECTIONS FOR USE

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide is an excellent disease control agent when used according to label directions for control of a broad spectrum of plant diseases. DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide is recommended for use in programs which are compatible with the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which include the use of disease resistant crop varieties, cultural practices, pest scouting and disease forecasting systems which reduce unnecessary applications of pesticides.

DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide is effective for strategic use in programs which attempt to minimize disease resistance to fungicides. Some other fungicides which are at risk from disease resistance exhibit a single-site mode of fungicidal action. DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide,with a multi-site mode of action, may be used to delay or prevent the development of resistance to single-site fungicides.

Consult with your Federal or state Cooperative Extension Service representatives for guidance on the proper use of DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide in programs which seek to minimize the occurrence of disease resistance to other fungicides.

DO NOT apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirement specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.

DO NOT combine DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide in the spray tank with pesticides, surfactants or fertilizers, unless your prior use has shown the combination physically compatible, effective and noninjurious under your conditions of use. DO NOT combine DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide with Dipel 4L, Foil, Triton AG-98, Triton B-1956, Latron B-1956 or Latron AG-98 as phytotoxicity may result from the combination when applied to some species on the label. Dipel is a registered trademark of Abbott Laboratories; Foil is a registered trademark of Ecogen, Inc. Latron B-1956 and B-1956 are trademarks of Rohm and Haas Company.

Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

CONIFERS

Apply in sufficient water and with proper calibration to obtain uniform coverage of tree canopy. Application with ground equipment is preferable to aerial application because ground applications generally give better coverage of the tree canopy. If application with ground equipment is not feasible, DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide may be appliedwith aircraft using at least 20 gallons per acre. When concentrate sprays are used or when treating non-bearing or immature trees, the lower rate of DACONIL 2787 Flowable Fungicide listed may be used. DO NOT allow livestock to graze in treated areas. The following spray volumes are recommended as gallons of spray per acre:

- Forest stands: 10 to 20, aircraft (concentrate)

- Christmas trees: 100 (dilute); 100 10 to 50, aircraft or ground equipment (concentrate)

- Nursery beds: 100 (dilute); 5 to 10, ground equipment only (concentrate)

Application Directions

Apply in early spring prior to budbreak. Repeat applications at approximately 6 to 8 week intervals, until spore release ceases in late fall. Apply monthly during periods of frequent rainfall, and where Lophodermium infections occur during dormancy (Pacific Northwest). During drought periods, applications may be suspended, then resumed upon next occurrence of needle wetness.

Note:

- Rate/100 gallons: Volumetric rates to be used only with full dilute spray volume specified on the label.

Restricted Entry Interval

48 hours
