General Information

PRODUCT INFORMATION
BELMONT2.7 FS is a systemic fungicide seed treatment specifically for control of systemic downy mildews, Pythium and Phytophthora spp. For control of other soilborne diseases, use in combination with other seed treatment fungicides.

VITAVAX and RANCONA products are compatible with BELMONT 2.7 FS. Do not use BELMONT 2.7 FS in combination with other seed treatment products unless compatibility and safety to the crop has been verified. Do not mix with any pesticide that has a prohibition against tank mixing. Observe the most restrictive of labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixtures.

BELMONT 2.7 FS may be applied on its own, as water-based slurry, or in combination with other registered seed treatment insecticides and fungicides through standard slurry or mist-type commercial seed treatment equipment.

NOTE: BELMONT 2.7 FS is a systemic fungicide with a specific mode of action. BELMONT 2.7 FS could be subject to development of resistant strains of fungi. Development of resistance cannot be predicted. Therefore, Chemtura cannot assume liability for crop damage resulting from resistant strains of fungi. Consult your State Agricultural Experiment Station or Extension Service Specialist for guidance and ways to control any possible BELMONT 2.7 FS resistant strains of fungi which may occur.
