APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN, a flowable product containing chlorothalonil, is recommended for use as a spray for the control of many important plant diseases.

Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN is effective for use in programs that attempt to minimize disease resistance to fungicides. Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN has a multi-site mode of action and may be used to delay or prevent the development of resistance to single-site fungicides. Consult with your Federal or State Cooperative Extension Service representatives for guidance on the proper use of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN in programs that seek to minimize the occurrence of disease resistance to other fungicides.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS

Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN can be used effectively in dilute or concentrate sprays. Thorough, uniform coverage is essential for disease control.

DO NOT combine Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN in a spray tank with pesticides, surfactants, or fertilizers, unless your prior use has shown the combination to be physically compatible, effective, and noninjurious under your conditions of use. DO NOT combine Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN with DiPel 4L, Foil, Triton AG-98, Triton B-1956, or Latron B-1956 as phytotoxicity may result from the combination when applied to crops listed on the label.

Note: Prior to pouring, slowly invert container several times to assure uniform mixture.

The required amount of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN should be added slowly into the spray tank during filling. With concentrate sprays, premix the required amount of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN in a clean container and add to the spray tank as it is being filled. Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations.

Dosage rates on the label indicate pints of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN per acre, unless specified otherwise. Under conditions favoring disease development, the high rate specified and shortest application interval should be used.

APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS AND REQUIREMENTS

This product must not be applied within 150 feet, for aerial and air-blast applications, or 25 feet, for ground applications, of marine/estuarine water bodies unless that there is an untreated buffer area of that width between the area to be treated and the water body.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

ORNAMENTAL PLANTS

Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN may be used on ornamental plants grown in the field, nurseries, greenhouses and for spot treatment of ornamentals plants growing in landscapes. Due to the large number of species and varieties of ornamental and nursery plants, and the widely varying growing conditions, it is impossible to test every one for sensitivity to Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN.

Prior to commercial use, apply the recommended rates to a small area of plants in question, i.e. bedding plants, foliage, etc., and observe for 7 to 10 days prior to treatment of a commercial crop.

Field-grown ornamentals:

No more than 69.1 pints per acre of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN may be applied to field-grown ornamentals per year. For aerial application to field-planted ornamentals, a minimum rate of 10 gals of spray per acre should be used during application. Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN should be applied to plants when both foliage and flowers are dry or nearly dry.

For field-grown roses, apply 2 pints of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 N per acre for a single application. For field-planted pachysandra, apply 5.9 pints per acre of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN for a single application.

Ornamentals grown in nurseries, greenhouses:

DO NOT use mistblowers or high pressure spray equipment when making applications of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN in greenhouses.

Apply Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN at a rate of 1.9 pints per 100 gallons of water unless other directions are given in tables below. Apply in a spray until foliage run-off occurs when conditions are favorable for disease development. Repeat applications at 7- to 14-day intervals until conditions are no longer favorable. During periods when conditions favor severe disease incidence, generally cloudy or wet weather, apply Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN at 7 day intervals. Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN should be applied to plants when both foliage and flowers are dry or nearly dry.

DO NOT combine Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN in the spray tank with pesticides, surfactants or fertilizers unless prior use has shown the combination to be physically compatible, effective and noninjurious under your conditions of use.

Spot-treatment of ornamental plants growing in landscapes:

Apply Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN at a rate of 1.9 teaspoons per 2 gallons of water. Apply in a spray until foliage run-off occurs when conditions are favorable for disease development. Repeat applications at 7- to 14-day intervals until conditions are no longer favorable. During periods when conditions favor severe disease incidence, generally cloudy or wet weather, apply Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN at 7 day intervals. Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN should be applied to plants when both foliage and flowers are dry or nearly dry. Use of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN is recommended for control of fungal diseases referred to by numbers in parentheses following each ornamental. Ornamentals listed on the label have been tested and found to tolerate applications of Quali-Pro Chlorothalonil 500 ZN at the recommended rates. The user should test for possible phytotoxic responses, using recommended rates on ornamental plants on a small area prior to commercial treatments. Applications made during bloom may damage flowers and/or fruits.

NOTE: Fruits and other treated foliage must not be eaten or fed to livestock.
