Muscle ADV Fungicide is a unique formula that effectively controls foliar and soil-borne diseases on listed crops. It features a combination of two powerful ingredients Tebuconazole and Chlorothalonil which provides both curative and preventive control of diseases on beans, cucurbits, corn, dry bulb onion, garlic, shallot, peanut, and soybean. Product is intended to be diluted in water and applied using typical sprayers. Effectively protects crops against powdery mildew, gummy stem blight, rust, Northern leaf blight, Southern leaf blight, Northern leaf spot, gray leaf spot, purple blotch, anthracnose, and more. Available in a 2.5-gallon jug.
Spray volume should normally range from 20 to 150 gallons per acre (200 to 1400 liters per hectare) for dilute sprays and 5 to 10 gallons per acre (50 to 100 liters per hectare) for concentrate ground sprays and aircraft applications.
Apply only during alternate years in fields adjacent to aquatic areas such as lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes or natural ponds and estuaries. This product must not be applied within 150 feet (for aerial and air-blast applications), or 25 feet (for ground applications) from the aquatic areas listed above unless there is an untreated buffer area of that width between the area to be treated and the water body. Do not use in greenhouses or other enclosed areas.
Mixing, Loading and Applying
Muscle ADV is intended to be diluted into water and then applied to crops by typical agricultural spraying techniques. Always apply this product in sufficient water to obtain thorough, uniform coverage of foliage and crop surfaces intended to be protected from disease. Spray volume to be used will vary with crop and amount of plant growth. Spray volume should normally range from 20 to 150 gallons per acre (200 to 1400 liters per hectare) for dilute sprays and 5 to 10 gallons per acre (50 to 100 liters per hectare) for concentrate ground sprays and aircraft applications. Both ground and aircraft methods of application are recommended unless specific directions are given for a crop.
Slowly invert container several times to assure uniform mixture. Add specified amount of this product into the mixing tank while filling with water to the desired level. Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations. If other materials are added to the mixing and/or spray tank, this product should be thoroughly dispersed into the water prior to the addition of other materials.
Cucurbits: Cantaloupe; Chayote (fruit); Chinese waxgourd (Chinese preserving melon); cucumber; Momordica spp (includes balsam apple, bitter melon: Muskmelon; Pumpkin; Squash; Watermelon; Zucchini (Including cultivars and /or hybrids of these).
Apply the specified dosage in a protective spray schedule to foliage and fruit. Repeat applications at 10- 14 day intervals. Muscle ADV must have 2 - 4 hrs of drying time to allow tebuconazole to move systemically into plant tissue before rain or irrigation occurs. After this time Muscle ADV will be resistant to weathering.
The Chlorothalonil component of Muscle ADV enhances the control of Powdery mildew (Podosphaera xanthii syn., Sphaerotheca fuliginea) and Gummy stem blight/vine decline (Didymella bryoniae). For best control of foliage diseases, apply Echo 720 fungicide to the crop prior to and following applications of Muscle ADV. Follow application directions reported in Echo 720 label for a complete disease protection program. Apply by ground or air.
Do not apply more than 6.4 pints of this product (equal to 10.8 oz tebuconazole ai and 2.42 lbs chlorothalonil ai) per acre, per season.
Note: Spraying mature watermelons may result in sunburn of the upper surface of the fruit. DO NOT apply Muscle ADV to watermelons when any of the following conditions are present:
Intense heat and sunlight;
Poor vine canopy;
Other crop and environmental conditions which may be conducive to increased natural sunburn.
Before combining Muscle ADV with anything except water for application to watermelons ensure that prior use has shown the combination to be non-injurious to watermelons under your conditions of use.
Rust - 1.1 to 1.6 pt/acre
Apply Muscle ADV in a protective spray schedule or when weather conditions are favorable for rust development. Repeat applications at 10 day intervals. Do not apply more than 3.2 pints of this product (equal to 5.4 oz of Tebuconazole ai and 1.2 pounds of chlorothalonil ai) per acre per season.
Muscle ADV must have 2 - 4 hrs of drying time to allow tebuconazole to move systemically into plant tissue before rain or irrigation occurs. After this time Muscle ADV will be resistant to weathering.
SEE LABEL FOR COMPLETE RATES AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.
This product is toxic to mammals, fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high-water mark. Runoff may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate.
Groundwater Advisory: Chlorothalonil and tebuconazole are known to leach through soil into ground under certain conditions as a result of label use. Use of these chemicals in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in groundwater contamination.
Surface Water Advisory: 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 over-laying tile drainage systems that drain to surface water.
Tebuconazole may contaminate water through drift of spray in wind. This product has a high potential for runoff for several months or more after application. Poorly draining soils and soils with shallow water tables are more prone to runoff that contains this product. A level, well maintained vegetative buffer strip between areas to which this product is applied and surface water features such as ponds, streams, and springs will reduce the potential for contamination of water from rainfall-runoff. Runoff of this product will be reduced by avoiding applications when rainfall is forecasted within 48 hours.
