Echo 90DF Agricultural Fungicide is a water-dispersible granular formula that delivers effective control of disease pathogens on fruits, nuts, conifers, and agricultural crops. It contains 90% Chlorothalonil which offers broad-spectrum control of fungal diseases such as soybean rust, anthracnose, leaf spot, leaf blights, downy mildew, brown spot and more. This contact fungicide has excellent adherence quality so it sticks to plant surface naturally, plus its weatherproof features provide continuous protection against diseases even after rainfall. It can also be combined with other fungicides to achieve superior control and to help manage resistance. Available in 25 lb. bag.
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
DO NOT apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, or pets, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during applications. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the Agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
Dosage rates on this label indicate Ibs of ECHO 90DF per acre, unless otherwise stated. Under conditions favoring disease development, the high rate specified and shortest application interval should be used.
For each listed crop, the maximum total amount of chlorothalonil active ingredient (Ibs a.i./A) which may be applied per acre of that crop (or crop group) during each growing season is given in bold print within a box beneath the crop name. For each crop use situation listed below, the listed maximum individual and seasonal application rates must not be exceeded and the listed minimum retreatment intervals must not be decreased.
FIELD AND ROW CROPS
Rust - 1 1/8 to 2 1/2 lbs./acre
Botrytis blight - 2 1/2 lbs./acre
Begin applications during early bloom stage or when disease first threatens and repeat at 7 day intervals or as necessary to maintain control.
Begin applications after transplants are set in field, or shortly after emergence of field-seeded crop, or when conditions favor disease development. Repeat at 7 to 10 day intervals or as necessary to maintain control.
Start applications when disease threatens and repeat at 7 to 10 day intervals or as necessary to maintain control.
TREE AND ORCHARD CROPS
Apply this product in sufficient water and with proper calibration to obtain uniform coverage of tree canopy. Application with ground equipment is preferable to aerial application because ground applications generally give better coverage of the tree canopy. If application with ground equipment is not feasible, this product may be applied with aircraft using at least 20 gallons of spray per acre. When concentrate sprays are used or when treating non-bearing or immature trees, use the lower rate of this product listed for the crop being treated.
DO NOT allow livestock to graze in treated areas.
DO NOT apply Echo within one week before or after application of oil or an oil-based pesticide.

This product is toxic to aquatic invertebrates and wildlife. DO NOT apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high-water mark. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. DO NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate.
Chlorothalonil can contaminate surface water through spray drift. DO NOT apply when weather conditions favor drift from treated areas. Under some conditions, it may also have a high potential for runoff into surface water for several days to weeks after application. These include poorly draining or wet soils with readily visible slopes toward adjacent surface waters, frequently flooded areas, areas overlaying extremely shallow ground water, areas with in-field canals or ditches that drain to surface water, areas not separated from adjacent surface waters with vegetated filter strips, and areas overlaying tile drainage systems that drain to surface water.
Chlorothalonil degradates are known to leach through soil into ground water under certain conditions as a result of label use. Use of this product in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in ground water contamination.
