STONE FRUIT - (GRAY MOLD)

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

ELEVATE 50 WDG Fungicide is a hydroxyanilide protectant fungicide used for the control of Gray mold/Fruit Rot (Botrytis cinerea) on various fruits and vegetables. In addition, ELEVATE 50 WDG also controls Botrytis blossom and shoot blight on pistachios and Brown rot, Blossom blight and Twig blight (Monilinia spp.) on stone fruit and almonds. When ELEVATE 50 WDG is used to control Botrytis diseases, suppression of powdery mildew (Uncinula necator) on grapes may be achieved. ELEVATE 50 WDG should be used in a program with other fungicides that are labeled for the control of powdery mildew. ELEVATE 50 WDG should be used in a program with other products to provide seasonlong Botrytis protection. Apply as directed in the “APPLICATION” section using sufficient water to obtain thorough coverage of plants. Under severe disease conditions, use maximum rates and shorter application intervals as specified on the label. Dense foliage or excessive growth will often prevent adequate coverage; adjust spray volumes accordingly.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

ELEVATE 50 WDG is a group 17 fungicide. While there is no indication of crossresistance between the active ingredient in this product and other fungicides, no more than two consecutive applications should be made with ELEVATE 50 WDG or any product containing its active ingredient, fenhexamid. After the second application, use an alternative fungicide effective in controlling the labeled diseases for two applications before reapplying the active ingredient in this product. Consult your local crop advisor for appropriate rotation recommendations. Resistance management strategies such as blocking program, alternation or tank mixture with other fungicides used for Botrytis and Monilinia control are recommended. To avoid the development of resistant strains, DO NOT apply ELEVATE 50 WDG at rates lower than recommended on the label.

APPLICATION

Prepare only the amount of spray solution needed to treat the area to be sprayed. Maintain agitation during application. Applications should be made immediately after the spray solution is prepared. If there is any delay in application, continue mix agitation. DO NOT allow the spray mixture to stand without agitation. If agitation is stopped for any reason, the spray solution must be thoroughly re-mixed prior to any further use. Rainfall or overhead irrigation within 2 hours of application may necessitate re-treatment.

Proper calibration and operation of spray equipment is essential for successful spraying. Consult the spray equipment manufacturer’s operators manual, spray nozzle catalogs, and/or your crop advisor for more information.

DO NOT apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

For agricultural applications, apply using ground equipment only (such as boom type, air blast, hand gun or mist blower sprayer). For food crops, thorough coverage of all flowers and fruiting parts is essential for control of blossom and fruit infections caused by Botrytis and Monilinia spp.

Do not plant food crops in the treated field other than those for which the product is labeled within 30 days following the last application.

See Supplementa label for additional informations.
