PEAR AND ORIENTAL PEAR (POST-HARVEST) - LOW-VOLUME PACKING-LINE SPRAY

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

JUDGE 50WDG Fungicide is a hydroxyanilide protectant fungicide used for the control of Gray mold/Fruit rot (Botrytis cinerea) and Brown rot (Monilinia spp.).

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

JUDGE 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 JUDGE 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 JUDGE 50 WDG at rates lower than recommended on the label.

APPLICATION

Prepare only the amount of spray solution needed. 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.
