FUNGICIDE

EXAMPLE ONLY

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

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

The concentration factor in this example is: 3 X (i.e. 1500L + 500L = 3)

If the dilute label rate is 120 mL/100L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3x120, that is 360mL/100L of

concentrate spray.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100L of wa ter, and the sprayer set up and opera tion may need

to be changed as the crop gro ws.

For further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industr y guidelines,

undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.

For concentrate application, use a spray volume of a t least 200 litres per hectare.

ROSES AND CHRYSANTHEMUMS

Apply as a dilute spray only. Use sufficient water to thoroughly wet all aerial surfaces of the plant.

COMPATIBILITY

After SAPROL has been thoroughly mixed, the following products may be added to the spray or dip va t:

Gusathion, Torque, propargite 300, Calibre 100EC, chlorpyrifos, methomyl, mancozeb and parathion. A mixture of

SAPROL Fungicide with more than one of these products, or any other products, is not recommended, as damage may

result, and such use would therefore be a t the user’s own risk.

CAUTION

High volume application under slow drying conditions has resulted in ringburn of some a pple varieties.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

Do NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the product or used containers.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Do NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sun-

light. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do NOT dispose of undi-

luted chemicals on-site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If

not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and bur y empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is a vailable,

bury the containers below 500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose c lear of waterways,

desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should NOT be burnt.

DIP DISPOSAL

Unused or spent dip should be disposed of carefully to a void contamination of streams, rivers or waterways. Dispose

of dip by contacting an a pproved waste disposal facility for removal, or by chemical pre-treatment and biodegradation,

prior to disposal in a suitable disposal pit. Add at least 10kg of hydrated lime for every 1000L of dipping solution. Allow

sufficient time for the reaction to proceed before pumping out the dip.

WITHHOLDING PERIOD

APPLES: DO NOT HARVEST FOR 1 DAY AFTER APPLICATION.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

SAPROL is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 3

fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and the other Group 3 fungicides may exist

through normal genetic variability in an y fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually domina te the fungal

population if these fungicides are used repea tedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product or other

Group 3 fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficac y and possible yield loss. Since the occurrence of resistant

fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for an y losses that may result

from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.

MIXING

It is essential that SAPROL Fungicide be added slo wly in a fine stream over a period of 1-2 minutes to the required

amount of water in a high turbulence area of the spray or dip va t, with the agitator system running to full ca pacity. If

turbulent agitation cannot be achieved in the va t, SAPROL should be added slo wly to the water stream emitted from the

vat filling hose with the spray or dip va t agitator system running to full ca pacity. Thoroughly mix before adding any other

materials. Keep the agitator system running continuously and use within 3 hours. If SAPROL is to be sprayed on consec-

utive days with the same equipment, the spray vat should be thoroughly rinsed a t the end of the day.

APPLICATION

TREE AND VINE CROPS – Pre-harvest

Dilute spraying

Use a sprayer designed to a pply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and ma tched to the crop being sprayed.

Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even covera ge 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 a pplying

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 wa ter. Spray to the point of run-off. The required

dilute spray volume will change and the sprayer set up and opera tion may also need to be changed as the crop gro ws.

Concentrate spraying

Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentra te spraying (that is a sprayer which a pplies water volumes less than

those required to reach the point of run-off) and ma tched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to

achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen wa ter 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 calcula ted in the following way:

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Harmful if swallowed. May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do NOT inhale spray mist.

When preparing and using the spray, wear elbow length butyl rubber gloves and face shield. If product on skin,

immediately wash area with soa p and water. After use and before ea ting, drinking and smoking, wash hands, arms

and face thoroughly with soa p and water. After each day’s use, wash gloves, face shield and contamina ted clothing.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131126. If swallowed, DO NOT

induce vomiting. Give a glass of wa ter. If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a

doctor.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

Toxicity: Acute Toxicity: Triforine has a low acute oral and dermal toxicity and a moderate acute inhalation toxicity.

The acute oral LD

for Triforine in rats is greater than 16,000 mg/kg body weight. The acute percutaneous LD

rats is greater than 10,000 mg/kg. Acute dermal LD

for rats is greater than 10,000 mg/kg body weight. The one hour

acute inhalation LC

for Triforine in rats is greater than 4.5 mg/l air. This compound is rapidly absorbed and

metabolized by the rat. The acute oral LD

for Triforine in mice is greater than 6,000 mg/kg; and greater than 2,000

mg/kg in dogs. The acute dermal LD

for rabbits is greater than 10,000 mg/kg body weight.

Chronic Toxicity: In two-year feeding studies, the No-effect-level for Triforine in dogs was 100 mg/kg diet and 625

mg/kg diet for rats.

Reproductive Effects: A decreased number of foetuses and an increased number of resorptions were observed in a

study of pregnant rats fed Triforine at a dietary level of 1,600 mg/kg. In another developmental study, rabbits were fed

doses of 0, 5, 25 and 125 mg/kg/day of Triforine. The maternal No-observable-effect-level (NOEL) was 5 mg/kg/day;

the maternal Lowest-effect-level (LEL ) was 25 mg/kg/day, rabbits exhibited reduced food intake and loss of body

weight. The foetotoxic NOEL was 5 mg/kg/day; the foetotoxic LEL was 25 mg/kg/day, decreased average relative

weight was observed.

Teratogenic Effects: In a developmental study, rabbits were fed doses of 0, 5, 25 and 125 mg/kg/day of Triforine.

The teratogenic NOEL was greater than 125 mg/kg/day. The formulated product Saprol is not considered a teratogen.

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

Carcinogenic Effects: In short and long-term studies of Triforine, no irreversible or carcinogenic effects were

observed.

Organ Toxicity: High dosages in subchronic animal studies demonstrated adverse effects on red blood cells and

deposition of iron in several organs. If Triforine is ingested, the main hazard is aspiration of the solvent carrier into the

lungs resulting in chemical pneumonitis.

Fate in Humans and Animals: In a metabolism study of Triforine fed to rats, 94% was excreted after 48 hours and

96% was excreted after 168 hours; 18% by faecal excretion and 78% by renal excretion. Two metabolites were found

in urine, one of which was chloralformamide.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Insufficient data to be sure of status.

Effects on Birds: The acute oral LD

for Triforine in bobwhite quail is greater than 5,000 mg/kg. The dietary LC

bobwhite quail is 1,850 ppm in the diet. Mallard ducks had a dietary LC

of greater than 4,640 ppm in the diet.

Effects on Aquatic Organisms: At 50 mg/l in water, there are no signs of poisoning in Lebistes reticulatus. Rainbow

trout and bluegill sunfish tolerate 1,000 mg/l in water for 96 hours without symptoms. The 96- hour LC

for rainbow

trout and bluegill sunfish is greater than 1,000 mg/l. The formulated product Saprol is of low hazard to fish and aquatic

invertebrates. Both rainbow trout and bluegill sunfish had a 96-hour LC

of greater than 500 mg/l. The aquatic

invertebrate Daphnia (water flea) had a 48-hour EC

of greater than 25 mg/l. Saprol was also noted to be of low

hazard to Scenedesmus subspicatus (aquatic algae). The 96-hour EC

was greater than 380 mg/l.

Effects on Other Animals (Nontarget species): No toxic effect was observed in honeybees at less than or equal to

1,000 mg/kg diet. Triforine is considered of low hazard to honeybees and to the predatory mite Typhlodromus pyrii. It

is also of low hazard to earthworms at recommended dose rates.

ENVIRONMENTAL FATE

Breakdown of Chemical in Soil and Groundwater: The half-life of Triforine in soil is approximately 3 weeks. A range of

non-fungitoxic metabolic end-products are formed, presumably including piperazine. It is considered non-persistent in

soil.

Breakdown of Chemical in Surface Water: No information currently available.

Breakdown of Chemical in Vegetation: Triforine is translocated in plants upward through the root system. Triforine is

phytotoxic to some varieties of pears.

Birds:

bobwhite quail: >5000mg/kg

Daphnia:

117mg/L

Fish:

rainbow trout: >1000mg/L

bluegill sunfish: >1000mg/L
