GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

FARMOZ

AURORA

Systemic

Fungicide

contains

Propiconazole, a systemic foliar fungicide with protective and

curative action. AURORA 250 EC acts as an ergosterol biosynthesis

inhibitor. AURORA 250 EC mixes readily with water. Read Directions

for Use and Safety Directions before opening or using this product.

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

AURORA 250 EC is a member of the

DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide

resistance management AURORA 250 EC is a Group C fungicide.

Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to AURORA 250

EC and other Group C fungicides may exist through normal genetic

variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can

eventually dominate the fungi population if these fungicides are

used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by

AURORA 250 EC and other Group C fungicides, thus resulting in a

reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence

of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, FARMOZ Pty. Ltd.

accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of

AURORA 250 EC to control resistant fungi.

MIXING

Add the required amount directly to the spray tank and mix well.

Pineapples – Preplant dip: Add the required amount of AURORA

directly

well.

Avoid

excessive

contamination of the dip with organic matter.

APPLICATION

Cereals:

May be applied by boom spray or aircraft. Ensure

complete coverage of all leaves and stems is obtained. The object

of spraying is to keep the upper 2-3 leaves green and functioning

through grain filling stage.

With aircraft, as a guide, apply 10-20 L/ha with the lower rate being

used when applications are made with a cross wind of not less

than 5 knots. Use the higher rates when applying to dense crops.

Wheat - Stripe Rust -susceptible varieties

- apply when 10% leaves infected.

Wheat - Stripe Rust -moderately susceptible varieties

- apply when 15-20% leaves infected.

Apricots, Plums and other Stone Fruit: Apply by high volume

(dilute) sprayer or by concentrate sprayer.

Dilute Spraying:

Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the

point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed.

volume

determined

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 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off.

The required dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set

up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows.

Concentrate Spraying:

Use a sprayer designed and set up for the concentrate spraying

(that is a sprayer which 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 water

volume. Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute

Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate

the concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for concentrate can

then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY

Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.

2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha.

3. The concentration factor in this example is:

3 x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).

4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate

becomes 3 x 10, that is 30 mL/100 L of concentrate spraying.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water,

and the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as

the crop grows.

For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised

consult

relevant

industry

guidelines,

undertake

appropriate

competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

COMPATIBILITY

sprays which includes Axiom

Apply after flag leaves are around 70%

emerged if infection averages 10% on the

flag-2 leaf. The high rate of application

gives a longer period of protection than the

lower rates. Use higher rates on high

potential crops when conditions favour

severe disease development during

flowering. Lower rates are effective under

low disease pressure but have reduced

residual effect. Ensure thorough coverage.

Apply after flag leaf is 70% emerged

and before disease levels reach 1% of

flag leaf area. Consider control if

disease is greater than 5 to 10% on any

lower leaf layer. Use higher rates under

Consider control if disease is greater

than 5-10% on any lower leaf layer. Use

higher rates under high infection

pressure or when longer residual

protection is required. Lower rates are

effective under low disease pressure

but have reduced residual effect.

Apply after flag blade leaf is fully

emerged or Z39 if infection averages

10% on the flag-2 leaf. The high rate of

application gives a longer period of

protection than the lower rates. Use

higher rates on high potential crops

when conditions favour severe disease

development during flowering. Lower

rates are effective under low disease

pressure but have reduced residual

effect. Ensure thorough coverage.

This isa commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardousingredients arealso possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentrationof aparticular substance when calculatedover a normal 8 hourworking dayfor a 5

dayworkingweek. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) isan exposure value thatshould notbe exceeded for morethan 15 minutes andshould

not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be atleast 60 minutes between successive exposures atthe STEL. The term "peak "is

used when theTWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should neverbe exceeded, even briefly.

After oral administration to the rat, Propiconazole israpidly absorbed and also rapidly and almost completely

eliminatedwith urine and faeces. Residues in tissueswere generally low and there was no evidence for accumulation

or retention ofPropiconazole or its metabolites. Themajorsites ofenzymatic attack are the propyl side-chain and the

cleavage of the dioxolanering, togetherwith some attack at the 2,4-dichlorophenyl and 1,2,4-triazolerings.In the

mouse, the major metabolicpathway isvia cleavage of the dioxolane ring.

Plants: Degradation proceeds through hydroxylation ofthe n-propyl side-chain and deketalisation of the dioloxane

ring. After cleavage of triazole, triazole-alanine isformed asthe mainmetabolite. Metabolitesare conjugatedmostly

as glucosides.

The main degradation pathways are hydroxylation of thepropyl side-chain and the dioxolanering, and finally

formation of the 1,2,4-triazole. K
