Do not tank mix Phyton 35 with B-NINE and do not apply Phyton 35 within seven (7) days either before or after applications of B-NINE, as burning of leaves may result.
Do not tank mix Phyton 35 with strongly acidic compounds such as Aliette, and do not apply Phyton 35 within 14 days either before or after applications of such products.
Phytotoxicity: Phyton 35 has been tested on a wide variety of agricultural and ornamental plants without phytotoxicity symptoms. However because it is not possible to test all plant species, varieties and cultivars and because environmental factors and varietal stage of growth may affect phytotoxic expression, it is recommended that a small group of test plants be treated at the anticipated dosage rate and observed for 5 to 7 days to determine phytotoxicity before treating large numbers of those plants.
Crop injury may occur if applied to foliage under certain environmental conditions such as hot or prolonged moist periods.
Safety on buds and open blooms: Phyton 35 is safe to use at the lowest dosage rates on most buds and open blooms. It is recommended to treat a small group of test plants at the anticipated dosage rate and observe to determine phytotoxicity before treating large numbers of those plants.
Apply 100-200 gallons of Phyton 35 solution per acre of affected area to be treated depending on the size of the crop, disease to treat, and application equipment.
Begin application at first sign of disease, repeat applications every 7 to 14 days; use shorter intervals when severe disease conditions persist. The minimum retreatment interval is 7 days. Applications of PHYTON 35 should be in water volumes that provide thorough coverage of plant parts.
Routine preventive programs may be maintained at the lower rates. Rates above 15 oz. Phyton 35 per 100 gallons water may damage some tender, open blooms. Use of low volume equipment is e#ective against Botrytis and not e#ective against established powdery mildew and Xanthomonas infections. Applications on actively growing tissue may be more e#ective than applications on dormant tissue.
For a single application, do not exceed 2.0 lbs metallic copper/A. Do not exceed 20 lbs metallic copper/A/year. PHYTON 35 contains 0.49 lbs of metallic copper per gallon of product.
For a single application to Easter lilies, do not exceed 2.5 lbs metallic copper/A. Do not exceed 75 lbs metallic copper/A/year. The minimum retreatment interval is 7 days. Do not apply any additional copper pesticide to this land for 36 months for field grown Easter lilies.
SPECIFIC DIRECTIONS FOR SPRAY AND DIP APPLICATIONS DURING PROPAGATION
When harvesting cuttings on site, spray or fog stock plants 1 to 2 days prior to taking cuttings. Spray cuttings to drench again at same rate 2 to 3 days after sticking in rooting media, or dip cuttings for a few seconds prior to sticking.
When using rooted, callused, or unrooted cuttings shipped in, spray cuttings to drench 2 to 3 days after planting or sticking, or dip cuttings for a few seconds prior to sticking. Under severe disease pressure, repeat in 7 to 10 days.
FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND HERBS
Spray for thorough foliage coverage. Lower rates may be as effective as higher rates and should be tried first. Routine preventive programs may be maintained at the lower rates. Use of low volume equipment is effective against Botrytis and not effective against established powdery mildew and Xanthomonas infections.
(See label for complete list of diseases controlled and application rates).
1. What makes Phyton 35 different or better than Phyton 27? Both Phyton 35 and Phyton 27 contain the same active ingredient, which is absorbed and used throughout the plant to fight disease. We developed the Phyton 35 formula to meet requirements for use on food crops and to enable the use of a less restrictive label (“Warning” as opposed to “Danger”). The products are different but similar in many ways.
2. Aren’t copper-based fungicides/bactericides all the same? How is Phyton 35 different than other copper formulations? The active ingredients in Phyton 35 are dissolved into a solution, so they can be readily absorbed into plants to fight disease from the inside. This absorption and translocation capability makes Phyton 35 (and Phyton 27) different from other copper-based products. Because most copper-based products work only through physical contact with a pathogen on the plant’s surface, they leave behind a heavy, mostly insoluble copper residue to control diseases. Phyton 35 is a soluble, systemic copper formulation that provides highly effective disease control inside the plant as well as on the plant’s surface, with no visible residue.
3. Can I treat food crops like tomato plants, herbs or vegetables with Phyton 35? Yes. Phyton 35 is labeled for use on Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucurbits, Crucifer crops, Eggplant, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, and a variety of herbs.
4. Can I treat plants with open flowers, buds or poinsettia bracts in color with Phyton 35? Like Phyton 27, Phyton 35 has a low risk of phytotoxicity when used as directed. It can be used on most open flowers and buds at lower rates. The exceptions are Gloxinia flowers and certain sensitive varieties of orchids. We recommend that you trial it on a small number of plants with flowers or buds at the intended dosage rate before treating the entire crop. Phyton 35 can also be used on poinsettia bracts, even in full color. It is one of the few products that can be used at this critical stage of the growth cycle, and with no visible residue.
5. Can Phyton 35 be tank mixed, and if so, with what products? Yes. Phyton 35 is compatible with most registered pesticides. Before using additives and/or combinations for general applications, test for physical compatibility and non-injury under your conditions of use. Avoid mixing with other metals, salts or horticultural oils. Do not tank mix Phyton 35 with B-NINE and do not apply Phyton 35 within 7 days before or after applications of B-NINE. Do not tank mix Phyton 35 with strongly acidic compounds, such as Aliette, and do not apply Phyton 35 within 14 days before or after the application of such products.
6. Can I use Phyton 35 in my IPM program? Phyton 35 is an excellent cornerstone product for an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program because its broad-spectrum activity gives concurrent control of multiple diseases with a single application. It is compatible with many other pesticides, including many bio-pesticides. Phyton 35 can play an important role in microbial resistance management as a rotation partner with other chemistries.
7. Does Phyton 35 require the use of a surfactant? How about a sticker or spreader? Phyton 35 contains a sufficient amount of surfactant for most applications, so additional surfactant is seldom necessary. If needed, most non-ionic surfactants are compatible with Phyton 35. Because Phyton 35 is formulated to be absorbed by the plant, it is not compatible with stickers and horticultural oils. They hold Phyton 35 on the plant surface, reducing absorption and effectiveness, while also increasing the risk of phytotoxicity.
8. What is the shelf life of Phyton 35? If the bottle has been stored above 45 degrees F, it has a shelf life of 3-5 years.
9. Does Phyton 35 need to be shaken before use? What about agitation in the mix tank? It is good practice to shake the bottle of Phyton 35 well prior to diluting it in the mix tank. Agitation in the mix tank is NOT necessary. Because Phyton 35 is already a liquid in solution, it mixes readily with water. This makes Phyton 35 easy to mix and use, and it reduces wear on spray equipment.
10. Why does Phyton 35 need to be stored above freezing? What should I do if I think my bottle of Phyton 35 has gotten frozen? Freezing can cause the formulation of Phyton 35 to break down and reduce its efficacy. It can also result in unexpected phytotoxicity. If you think a bottle has frozen, check for blue crystals in the cap or a rattling sound when the bottle is shaken. These signs will indicate that copper sulfate is coming out of solution. Do not use frozen product for foliar applications. Phyton 35 that has been frozen can usually be used up as a soil drench without risk of phytotoxicity.
