GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Fungicide Resistance Warning

TOPAS 100 EC Systemic Fungicide is a member of the DMI

group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management

TOPAS is a Group C fungicide. Some naturally occurring

individual fungi resistant to TOPAS 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

TOPAS or 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,

Syngenta Crop Protection Pty Limited accepts no liability for

any losses that may result from the failure of TOPAS to control

resistant fungi.

Mixing

Add the required amount of product directly to the spray tank

and mix well.

Application

Apply by high volume (dilute) sprayer or by concentrate

sprayer.

Application in tree and vine crops

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. 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 Direction 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

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 spraying can then

be calculated in the following way:

Example only

1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: for example 2000

L/ha

2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: for example 500

L/ha

3. The concentration factor in this example is: 4 x (ie, 2000 L

÷ 500 L = 4)

4. If the dilute label rate is 25 mL/100 L, then the concentrate

rate becomes 4 x 25, that is 100 mL/100 L of concentrate

spray.

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 to consult relevant

industry guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training

and follow industry Best Practices.

PRECAUTION

Re-entry Period

DO NOT enter treated area until spray has dried.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Low hazard to bees. May be applied to plants at any time.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS

AND ENVIRONMENT

Medium toxicity to fish and aquatic invertebrates. DO NOT

contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the product or

used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in closed original container in a dry, well ventilated place

as cool as possible out of direct sunlight.

Triple or preferably pressure rinse empty containers before

disposal. Add rinsings to the spray tank. DO NOT dispose of

undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return

clean containers to a recycler or designated collection point. If

not recycling break, crush, puncture or bury empty containers

in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available bury the

containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked

and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable

vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product

should not be burnt.
