ProStar 70 WDG is a systemic fungicide recommended for control of diseases of turf caused by Basidiomycetes.

APPLICATION AND DOSAGE
Apply the specified amount of ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide in 2 to 5 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft as a broadcast application, unless otherwise specified. (See Fairy Ring, Gray Snow Mold directions). Add appropriate amount of water to the spray tank. If ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide is to be tank mixed with an appropriately labeled fungicide or other product to control another pest, add ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide first. Prior to spraying with a tank mixture not specified on the label, it is advisable to determine if the products are physically compatible.
For best results, spray the treated area uniformly, using equipment such as flat fan nozzles. Use 50-mesh or larger screens. Avoid mowing for 24 hours after application and do not irrigate until spray has dried on grass, unless otherwise noted. When nonlabeled diseases are also present, ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide may be tank mixed with appropriate labeled fungicides if the products are physically compatible.
For use rates over 2.2 oz per 1,000 sq ft, do not apply ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide within 100 feet of any estuary or marine habitat or within 100 feet of any ditches, drainage tiles, or other waterways that drain directly into (within 1/2 mile of ) estuaries or marine habitats.
Apply no more than a combined total of 4.5 oz ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide per 1,000 sq ft as a broadcast application during a single growing season.

ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide is a systemic fungicide, that, when mixed with the appropriate volume of water, will provide systemic, preventative, and curative activity in the management of foliar, soilborne, and propagative diseases caused by rusts, species of Rhizoctonia, and Sclerotium rolfsii.
Although ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide can be curative, application is suggested on a preventative basis at all sites of use where applicable when conditions are optimum for disease development or past history indicates disease development is imminent. When used as a curative treatment, apply ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide at the highest recommended concentration or rate allowed according to label directions.
Add the appropriate amount of ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide to a partially filled spray or drench tank. Maintain continuous agitation throughout application and apply with properly calibrated spray equipment using 50-mesh or larger screens.
If ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide is tank mixed with other labeled plant protection products, add ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide first.
Failure to follow the direction for use and precautions on the label may result in poor disease control or plant injury.
For foliar applications, apply the spray mixture to obtain optimum coverage of the plant foliage.

NOTICE TO USER: ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide has shown acceptable plant tolerance to the specific genera and species listed on the label. Due to the large number of species and varieties of ornamentals and nursery plants, it is impossible to test every one for tolerance to ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide. Neither the Manufacturer nor the Seller has determined whether or not ProStar 70 WDG Fungicide can be used safely on ornamental plants not specified on the label. For plants not specified on the label, trial applications should be at the highest labeled concentrations to at least 25 plants. Apply 3 times at 14-day intervals (foliar) and twice at a 28-day interval (drench). Observe for phytotoxicity prior to each application and 2 weeks after final application.
