Tips For Use
- Do not apply if the crop is stressed due to excessively dry or moist conditions.
- Do not apply if rain is likely within 6 hours.
- Do not apply more than six (6) sprays per season.
- Note: For cereals, the flag two (2) leaf is the 3rd last fully emerged leaf, i.e. the second leaf below the flag.
Spray Timings for Stripe Rust Control:
- Wheat – Stripe Rust – susceptible varieties – apply when 10% of leaves are infected.
- Wheat – Stripe Rust – moderately susceptible varieties – apply when 15 to 20% leaves infected.
- Shake well before use.
- Fill the spray tank and then add concentrate.
- Mix well.
Pineapples – Preplant dip
- Add Surefire Procon 250 EC to the dip and mix well.
- Avoid excessive contamination of the dip with organic matter.
- Procon 250 EC Systemic Fungicide may be applied by ground rig, high or low volume, or by air.
- It may be applied by boom spray of aircraft.
- Ensure complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained.
- The object of spraying is to control disease on the upper 2 to 3 leaves during grain filling.
- With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10 to 20 L/ha with the lower rate being used when applications are made with a crosswind of not less than 5 knots.
- Use the higher rates when applying to dense crops.
- Apricots, Plums and other Stone fruit: Apply by high volume (dilute) sprayer or by concentrate sprayer.
- Bananas: Apply by misting machine, air blast sprayer or aircraft. Use a minimum of 30 L water if applied by air.
- Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and match the sprayed crop.
- Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy.
- Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off.
- The required water volume may be determined by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry guidelines or expert advice.
- Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use table for each 100L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.
- The required dilute spray volume will change, and sprayer set-up and operation may also need to be changed as the crop grows.
- Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (a sprayer that applies water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the crop being sprayed.
- Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen volume.
- Determine the appropriate dilute spray volume (see Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy.
- This is needed to calculate the concentrate mixing rate.
- Surefire Procon 250 EC may be mixed with any one of the registered products containing; azinophos-methyl, chlorothalonil, diazinon, methomyl liquid, metalaxyl, propargite, parathion, dimethoate, copper oxychloride, mancozeb and zineb.
