MACADAMIA NUTS - ANTHRACNOSE

General Information

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Nu Cop 50 WP may be applied by Aerial, or by Dilute or Concentrated Ground Sprayers, or Chemigation on crops and at rates given on the label unless specifically prohibited for that crop use. Sufficient spray volume and spray pressure is essential to thoroughly penetrate the plant canopy and give thorough spray coverage and at the times indicated. On crops sensitive to copper fungicides use the higher volumes of spray water per acre. Use the higher dosage of Nu Cop 50 WP on mature trees, or when disease pressure is severe or weather conditions warrant.

When using adjuvants or other pesticides in combination with this product, always observe the caution statements on the product’s label and required days before harvest. Sprays of Nu Cop 50 WP may be applied up to 24 hours pre-harvest.

Before mixing with other products in spray tank, be sure that products are compatible. If compatibility is in question, use the compatibility jar test before mixing a whole tank. Nu Cop 50 WP should not be applied in spray water having a pH of less than 6.5 as phytotoxicity may result. Use a buffering agent to increase the pH to 6.5-7.0 if your water source is below 6.5. Also avoid using water having a pH of greater than 9.0 as effectiveness may be reduced.

MINIMUM RECOMMENDED SPRAY VOLUME IN GALLONS PER ACRE (GPA)

If a crop is sensitive to copper sprays, higher volumes of spray water will decrease potential injury. A full dilute spray on tree crops means the maximum amount of spray when uniformly applied that an acre of such trees will hold to the point that excess spray begins to drip off. Thus the dilute spray volume per acre will depend on tree size and leaf surface per acre.

The following listed dilute spray volumes is the volume that will generally provide such coverage on average size of full leafed trees. A concentrate spray is a spray applied in less volumes than a dilute. The extent of the concentration varies by equipment used. Thus the following spray volumes for a concentrated spray are the minimum volumes recommended per acre.

Use Nu Cop 50 WP as noted below unless indicated otherwise in the specific crop directions. Nu Cop 50 WP is adaptable to spraying from aircraft and ground spraying equipment. Depending on the equipment used and the specific crop, the volume applied per acre will differ. Refer to recommended volumes in the label.

POSTING INSTRUCTIONS

Posting of areas to be chemigated is required when any part of a treated area is within 300 feet of sensitive areas such as residential areas, labor camps, businesses, day care centers, hospitals, in-patient clinics, nursing homes, or any public areas such as schools, parks, playgrounds, or other public facilities not including public roads, or when chemigated area is open to the public, such as golf courses or retail greenhouses.

Posting must conform to the following requirements: Treated areas shall be posted with signs at all usual points of entry and along likely routes of approach from the listed sensitive areas. This sign is in addition to any sign posted to comply with the Worker Protection Standard. When there are no usual points of entry, signs must be posted in the corners of the treated areas and in any other location affording maximum visibility to sensitive areas. The printed side of the sign should face away from the treated area towards the sensitive area. The signs shall be printed in English. Signs must be posted prior to application and must remain posted until foliage has dried and soil surface water has disappeared. Signs may remain in place indefinitely as long as they are composed of material to prevent deterioration and maintain legibility for the duration of the posting period.

All words shall consist of letters at least 2 1/2 inches tall, and all letters and the symbol shall be a color which sharply contrasts with their immediate background. At the top of the sign shall be the words KEEP OUT, followed by an octagonal stop sign symbol at least 8 inches in diameter containing the word STOP. Below the symbol shall be the words PESTICIDES IN IRRIGATION WATER.

FROST INJURY PROTECTION

Bacterial ice nucleation inhibitor - Application of Nu Cop 50 WP made to all crops listed on the label at rates and stages of growth indicated on the label at least 24 hours and not more than 72 hours prior to anticipated frost conditions, will afford control of ice nucleating bacteria (Pseudomonas syringae, Erwinia herbicola, and Pseudomonas flourescens) may thereby provide some protection against light frost. The degree of frost protection will vary with weather conditions and other factors.

Not recommended for those geographical areas where weather conditions favor severe frost.

Refer in the label regarding tank mix information.
