Resistance Warning:

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP 4 FUNGICIDE

TITAN METALAXYL 50G GRANULAR SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE is a member of

the Phenylamide group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management TITAN

METALAXYL 50G GRANULAR SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE is a Group 4 fungicide. Some

naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to TITAN METALAXYL 50G GRANULAR

SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE and other Group 4 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 TITAN METALAXYL

50G GRANULAR SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE and other Group 4 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, Titan Ag Pty Ltd

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

50G GRANULAR SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE to control resistant fungi.

Potting soil should first be treated by using steam sterilisation procedures. Dry Soil Mix: After

sterilisation and just before planting or re-potting, incorporate thoroughly into the soil. Follow up

with two soil treatments 8 to 12 weeks apart. Soil Treatment: if soil mix treatment has not been

used at planting, apply three times 8 to 12 weeks apart. Wet the surface of the soil before applying

the fungicide.

For established trees showing moderate to severe symptoms of decline. Apply as a soil application

at beginning of summer wet season and again 8 to 12 weeks later until trees have recovered. Clear

all weed growth from under tree canopy. To ensure that the fungicide is carried into the root zone

of the tree apply when rain is imminent or use irrigation. Severely defoliated trees and limbs

damaged by exposure to full summer sunlight should be pruned to remove damaged limbs prior to

treatment and exposed limbs painted with white plastic paint to prevent sunburn. It is essential that

good management practices include proper mulching, fertilisation and irrigation where required be

followed to allow satisfactory response to Root Rot control by TITAN METALAXYL 50G GRANULAR

SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDE. In WA for dryland crops - apply in the autumn and again in the spring and

repeat the application at 3 monthly intervals during the summer/autumn period.
