GRAZING AND HARVEST
- Do not feed alfalfa hay or forage to livestock. All other crops can be grazed or fed to livestock.
- Do not graze treated corn crops within 6 days of last application.
- Canola – 21 days after application
- Corn – 7 days after application
- Flax & Soybeans – 21 days after application
- Dry beans, Faba beans, Field peas & Lentils – 30 days after application
- Fill the spray tank 1/2 full of water, start sprayer agitation, and continue agitation throughout mixing and spraying process.
- Add the required amount of any tank mix partner if needed
- Add required amount of Spade to the tank, finish filling the tank with water, and apply product.
- If application is stopped prior to completion, re-suspend spray solution by full agitation prior to commencing spraying again.
- Clean out sprayer equipment thoroughly after application is complete.
- Consult the product label for uses, application rates and water volumes for all crops and diseases.
- Spade fungicide is preventative in nature and works best if applied prior to, or at the onset of disease, and as part of a regularly scheduled protective spray program.
- Good coverage is essential for effective disease control. Use higher water volumes with denser crop canopies.
- DO NOT apply to cereals that have started heading out – later application is thought to increase incidences of fusarium head blight in wheat & barley.
