General Information

Product Information

Stamina fungicide seed treatment is a broad- spectrum liquid fungicide that protects seed and seedlings from certain seed and soilborne diseases resulting in improved plant health. Stamina increases emergence and plant stands by controlling or suppressing these diseases. See Stamina fungicide seed treatment Crop-specific Use Directions for crop uses and diseases controlled or suppressed by Stamina. Disease symptoms such as seed rot, seedling rot, seedling blight, root rot, and damping-off (preemergence or postemergence) can be associated with the actions of various fungal pathogens. These symptoms are referred to in Stamina fungicide seed treatment Crop-specific Use Directions as “seed and seedling disease”.

Seed treatment applications with Stamina have been associated with more rapid and increased emergence of seedlings under certain cold conditions.

Use the higher rates of Stamina when disease pressure is expected to be high.

Mode of Action
Pyraclostrobin, the active ingredient of Stamina, belongs to the group of respiration inhibitors classified by the US EPA and Canada PMRA as quinone outside inhibitors (Qol), or target-site-of-action Group 11 fungicides.

Resistance Management Recommendations
Fungal isolates with acquired resistance to Group 11 fungicides may eventually dominate the fungal population if Group 11 fungicides are used predominantly and repeatedly in the same field in successive years as the primary method of control for the targeted pathogen species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Stamina or other Group 11 fungicides.

To delay the development of fungicide resistance:

- Use Stamina in mixtures with fungicides from different target-site-of-action groups registered/permitted for the use and that are effective against the pathogens of concern.
- Use at least the minimum labeled rate of each fungicide in the tank mix.
- Use of Stamina should be integrated into an overall disease and integrated pest management program.
- Cultural practices known to reduce disease development should be followed.
Consult your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor, and/or BASF representative for additional IPM and resistance management strategies established for your area.

Application Instructions
Stamina can be used in commercial seed treatment facilities and on-farm systems. DO NOT use for applications at hopper box, planter box, seed treaters, etc. For use with commercial or professional seed treatment application equipment only.

Seed must be of a good quality, well conditioned, and free of chaff before treatment.
The purchaser of Stamina is responsible for ensuring all seed treated with this product is adequately dyed with a suitable color to prevent accidental use as food for man or feed for animals. Refer to 21CFR, Part 2.25.
- Use an EPA-approved dye or colorant that imparts an unnatural color to the seed.
- Any dye or colorant added to treated seed must be cleared for use under 40 CFR, Part 180.900, “Exemptions from the requirement of a tolerance”.

Federal regulations have established official tolerances or exemptions from tolerances for residues on food and forage crops that must not be exceeded when the product (dye or colorant) is used at specified rates.

Prepare no more mixture of Stamina than is needed for immediate application to seed. Refer to the Tank Mixing Information section of this label. Apply Stamina at the rates listed in Stamina fungicide seed treatment Crop specific Use Directions as a water-based mixture using standard slurry or mist-type seed treatment application equipment. The exact amount of water needed to provide the mixture or slurry rate for uniform and complete coverage of the seed surface is difficult to predict because weather conditions, seed type and surface, and equipment used all have a bearing on coverage. Thorough seed coverage and proper application equipment calibration are essential for good disease control. Consult a seed treatment specialist regarding slurry rates for the crop seed to be treated with Stamina and for calibration and operation procedures of the seed treatment equipment.

Use Restrictions
- DO NOT use treated seed for food, feed, or oil processing.
- DO NOT store Stamina near feed or foodstuffs.
- DO NOT contaminate feed or foodstuffs.
- DO NOT contaminate domestic or irrigation waters.
- DO NOT plant crops within 30 days after planting Stamina-treated seed unless permitted according to the seed labeling note.
- DO NOT use the same auger for treating seed that will handle commercial or feed grains.
- DO NOT store leftover treated seed where there is a chance of it becoming mixed with untreated seed. Store treated seed in cool, dry conditions.
