Spray every 5 to 10 days as soon as first spots of mildew appear.

Use higher rate when disease is severe.

Note on cucurbits:High temperatures at the time of application

of Morestan to cucurbits and in the days following may lead to

accentuation of sunburn and blemishes on fruit. APPLICATION

one spray is sufficient.Apply by dilute spraying equipment only.Refer to

Applicationsection in GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS.Concentrate spraying

is not appropriate for this use.Spray in cool humid conditions,i.e.

around dawn.Avoid spraying during the heat of the day.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Fungicide Resistance Warning

Morestan is a quinoxaline fungicide.For fungicide

resistance management Morestan is a Group X

fungicide.Some naturally occurring individual fungi

resistant to Morestan and other Group X fungicides may

exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal

population.The resistant individuals can eventually

dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are

used repeatedly.These resistant fungi will not be

controlled by Morestan and other Group X 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,Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd accepts no

liability for any losses that may result from the failure of

Morestan to control resistant fungi.

Special warning - crop safety in cucurbit crops

There are certain conditions that can increase the

possibility of minor marking of leaf tissue and young fruit

in some cucurbit crops.Avoid application of Morestan

when temperatures are high (>30 ºC),or during

extended periods of unusually cold weather.In conditions

where young leaf growth and young fruit are very soft

and tender,do NOT use the higher label rates.Do NOT

apply in tank mixtures with oil-based products.Do NOT

apply immediately after an application of an oil-based

product.Do not apply with emulsifiable concentrate (EC)

products unless the supplier of that product can support

the compatibility of that mixture with Morestan.By

utilising fungicide resistance strategies which

recommend alternation with other chemical groups after

Compatibility It is best to apply Morestan alone. However ,Morestan has been used satisfactorily with either Antracol

,Bayfidan

or Nitofol

.Do not use wetting a gents.Do not mix Morestan with strongly alkaline materials such as Bordeaux mixture.Do not mix Morestan with emulsifiable concentrates except Bayfidan

and other fungicides used in a powder y mildew resistance strateg y program on cucurbits.Do not mix concentra tes together but add each to the spray tank separately .As formula tions of other manufacturers' products are beyond the control of Bayer CropScience,all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.As changes in c limatic conditions can alter the sensitivity of plants to mixtures of sprays, Bayer CropScience cannot be responsible for the behaviour of such mixtures. Mixing To the required quantity of Morestan add a small amount of water and stir to make a paste. Add further water and mix until a cream results.P our this into water in spray vat while stirring or with a gitators in motion. Application (Apples,P ears,P eaches) Special Instructions for Tree Crops Dilute Spraying Use a sprayer designed to a pply high spray volumes, up to the point of run-off and matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and opera te the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy .A pply sufficient spray volume to cover the crop to the point of run-off. Avoid excessive run-off. The required spray volume to achieve point of run-off may be determined by applying different test volumes,using different settings on the sprayer ,or from industry guidelines or other 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 to achieve point of run-off will change and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the crop grows. Concentrate Spraying Concentra te spraying is not appropria te with this product. Export of Treated Produce Growers should note tha t suitable Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) or import tolerances may not be established in all markets for produce harvested from Morestan treated plants. Please check with Bayer CropScience for the latest informa tion on MRLs and import tolerances before using Morestan Miticide - Fungicide Spray. PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUST ACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT Dangerous to fish and other aquatic organisms. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.
