Product Description

Apples: 

Time of application: 

For  the  control  of  leaf  scab,  apply  Precious as  part  of  a  protectant   fungicide  programme  commencing  at  the start of bud burst. Depending on disease pressure, treat at intervals of 10 − 14 days, using a maximum of four applications of Precious per crop. A minimum of 56 days must elapse between the last spray of Precious and harvest.

Rate of application:

Apply 1.125 litres Precious in 500 − 1500 litres of water per hectare.
Spray to achieve thorough and even coverage of foliage but not to the point of run-off.

Recommendation: 

A minimum water volume of 180 l/ha may be used, although the efficiency of reduced volume applications has not been evaluated.


Strawberries:

A minimum of three days must elapse between the last spray of Precious and harvest.

Rate of application:

Apply 2.0 litres Precious in 1000-2000 litres of water per hectare. It is important to achieve accurate and complete coverage of the plants for effective protection of the crop.
