Application timing and rate variation
Daconil Weather Stik is an excellent choice as the basis of a preventative program. As a contact fungicide it can be used early curatively after first disease symptoms become evident, especially in combination with Banner Maxx. The sticking and staying ability combines to ensure effective “stopping power” on leaf surfaces against new infections. The lower rate of 13L/ha is suitable for use in tank mixtures and preventative programs, whereas the higher rate of 20L/ha should be considered in curative situations.
For example, in the case where a disease like Dollar Spot has already caused symptoms (scarring) Daconil Weather Stik could be applied solo at 20L/ha or as a tank mixed with Banner Maxx at 5-10L/ha. In curative situations though, the residual will be shorter due to the high population numbers of the pathogen. It would be prudent to follow up with Headway Maxx at 9L/ha 7-10 days later. This approach should stop disease progression and protect new growth for at least for the next 4-5 weeks. For full application details, please consult the product label.
