Banner MAXX II may be used at rates of 2-24 fl. oz./100 gallons of water for control of diseases of ornamental plant species (see Tables 1, 2, and 3).

NOTE: For outdoor uses, you may apply up to 5.4 gallons of Banner MAXX II/acre/crop/calendar year.

For general disease control in landscapes, apply 6-8 fl. oz./100 gallons of water every 21 days. For best control, begin Banner MAXX II applications before disease development.

Note: Plant tolerances to Banner MAXX II have been found acceptable for the specific general and species of plants listed under the Directions for Use. Other plant species may be sensitive to Banner MAXX II, and diseases other than those listed may not be controlled. Before using Banner MAXX II on plants or for diseases that are not listed in the Directions for Use, test Banner MAXX II on a small scale basis first. Do not apply Banner MAXX II to African violets, begonias, Boston fern, or geraniums. Apply the recommended rates for a particular type of disease, i.e., rust, powdery mildew, etc., and evaluate for phytotoxicity and disease control prior to widespread use.
