CORN (SWEET CORN, FIELD CORN, FIELD CORN GROWN FOR SEED, AND POP CORN)

General Information

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT STATEMENT

MONSOON is a Group 3 fungicide which exhibits no known cross-resistance to other fungicide groups. However, fungal pathogens are known to develop resistance to products with the same mode of action when used repeatedly. Any fungal population may contain or develop individuals that are resistant to MONSOON and other Group 3 fungicides. If Group 3 fungicides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted diseases, the resistant isolates may eventually dominate the fungal population. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Such strategies may include rotation and/or tank mixing with products having different modes of action or limiting the total number of applications per season. Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor, and/or manufacturer for fungicide resistance management and/or integrated disease management recommendations for specific crops and resistant disease populations. Loveland Products encourages responsible resistance management to ensure effective long-term control of the fungal diseases on the label.

OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS WHEN SPRAYING IN THE VICINITY OF AQUATIC AREAS SUCH AS LAKES, RESERVOIRS, RIVERS, PERMANENT STREAMS, MARSHES OR NATURAL PONDS, AND ESTUARIES.

Apply only during alternate years in fields adjacent to aquatic areas listed above.

Do not apply by ground or air within 100 feet of aquatic areas listed above.

Do not cultivate within 10 feet of an aquatic area to allow growth of a vegetative filter strip.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

CORN (SWEET CORN, FIELD CORN, FIELD CORN GROWN FOR SEED, AND POP CORN)

Notes: Apply MONSOON in a protective spray schedule or when weather conditions are favorable for disease development. Repeat applications at 7- to 14-day intervals, or as necessary to maintain control. A maximum of 24 fl. oz. (1.5 pint) of MONSOON may be applied per acre per crop season. Sweet corn: MONSOON may be applied up to 7 days before the harvest of ears or forage, and 49 days before the harvest of fodder. Field, seed or popcorn: MONSOON may be applied up to 21 days before the harvest of forage, and 36 days before the harvest of grain or fodder.

General Comments: For optimum disease control, the lowest labeled rate of a spray surfactant should be tank-mixed with MONSOON. MONSOON must have two to four hours of drying time on corn foliage for the active ingredient to move systemically into plant tissue before rain or irrigation occurs. After this period of time, MONSOON will be resistant to weathering. MONSOON is a demethylation inhibitor (DMI) fungicide (Group 3).

Restricted-entry interval (REI) for Sweet Corn: 19 days.

Restricted-entry interval (REI) for all Corn (except sweet corn): 12 hours.

Pre-Harvest Interval

Sweet corn: MONSOON may be applied up to 7 days before the harvest of ears or forage, and 49 days before the harvest of fodder.
Field, seed or popcorn: MONSOON may be applied up to 21 days before the harvest of forage, and 36 days before the harvest of grain or fodder.

Restricted Entry Interval

For sweet corn = 19 days.
For all corn except sweet corn = 12 hours.
