IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO USE THIS PRODUCT IN A MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH ITS LABELING.
Shake well before using.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
High volume dilute applications: Use the PRODUCT per ACRE rate for concentrate spray applications for tree crops (example: no more than 400 gallons on apples). When making dilute ground applications, use the PRODUCT per 100 GALLONS rate. Follow all crop specific language on this label for application. Dilute sprays must not exceed maximum a.i. per year.
Aerial applications to tree crops: Use a minimum of 10 gal/acre for aerial application to fruit tree crops. Increased fungicidal activity is related to coverage and timing, increased volumes are required as crop canopy density increases. NOTE: Conifer applications require higher spray volumes, use lower volumes with mist type applicators and highest volumes with conventional types.
Row Crop applications: Use a minimum of 5 gal/acre for ground application, however, make most ground applications with 10 to 20 gal/acre as cropping situations dictate. Increased fungicidal activity is related to coverage and timing, increased volumes are required as crop canopy density increases. Plantback Restriction: Do not plant any crop not labeled for Talaris 4.5 F use within 30 days of the last application.
Chemigation: See specific directions in this label.
Mode of Action: Talaris 4.5 F is a tubulin inhibitor fungicide falling into the FRAC Group 1 for Benzimidazoles. Its Mode of Action is the inhibition of microtubule assembly. It has protectant, systemic and curative actions, each of these specific to certain crops, fungi, and climatic conditions.
Fungicide Resistance: Fungal pathogens have proven to develop a resistance to certain fungicide families and modes of action. These are called tolerant and resistant strains of fungi. Industry and university researchers have developed effective programs that continue to provide excellent control of these strains, however, precautions and specific steps must be taken to ensure effective fungicide rotation, tank mixing of different modes of action and disease monitoring are the keys of your fungicide program.
It is recommended that Talaris 4.5 F be rotated or tank mixed with different modes of action fungicide chemistry. All products containing thiabendazole, thiophanate ethyl or carbendazim fungicides (benzimidazole fungicides) are NOT considered rotation or tank mix partners. These utilize similar chemistry and mode of action and can contribute to the development of disease tolerance.
Should Talaris 4.5 F be applied as directed and the treatment is considered not to be effective, you may have encountered a resistant or tolerant fungi strain. Do not apply this mode of action chemistry again during this growing season, as this may enhance the resistance at this site. Consult with your local Cooperative Extension Service, University Research or Certified Crop Consultant for more information concerning fungicides effective on the tolerant or resistant strains encountered.
Determine the treatment rate as indicated in the directions for use for crop and pathogen and measure the intended areas of application. Prepare a suspension of the product. Fill spray tank to half full, start agitation. See Mixing Order chart below when any other products are tank mixed with this product. Be sure to shake product container well before pouring to measure. Some settling may occur during prolonged periods of non-use. High pH environments cause a shortened tank life for the diluted product. The buffering of tank water to pH 6-7 prior to the addition of Talaris 4.5 F is specified. Slowly pour the required product into partially filled spray tank (1/2 total volume), then finish filling the tank with water, all the while maintaining agitation. Use sufficient water to ensure full coverage of foliage. Do not use an amount of water that could lead to excessive runoff from target plants. The amount of water will vary according to the amount of foliage requiring coverage and type of equipment but generally, 25 to 100 gallons per acre is adequate. If there is any question as to the compatibility of the components, always perform a jar test with proportional amounts of each product, using water from the actual use source.
Tank Mixing Instructions
Talaris 4.5 F is compatible with most commonly used pesticides. If tank mixing with other materials, add products in the following order: water-soluble bags, wettable powders, dry flowable, liquid flowable, emulsifiable concentrates, and soluble materials such as fertilizers. No claim of compatibility with other products is implied. Do not tank mix with copper-containing materials or highly alkaline pesticides, such as Bordeaux mixture or lime sulfur. Consult the intended tank mix partner product label for appropriate application rates and use instructions. Follow the label directions for the most restrictive of label precautions and limitations. This product cannot be mixed with any product containing a label prohibition against such mixing. Read and observe the most restrictive precautionary statements and other information appearing on product labels used in mixtures. Talaris 4.5 F may be applied in conjunction with chemically neutral liquid fertilizers. Avoid application in conjunction with highly alkaline fertilizers, such as aqueous ammonia, as this may cause a degradation of the pesticide, resulting in reduced performance.
Always read and follow label directions of all products. The most restrictive label language will apply. Do not mix more spray solution that you plan to apply that day.
Compatibility Test for Mix Components
It is the pesticide user’s responsibility to ensure that all products are registered for the intended use. Read and follow the applicable restrictions and limitations and directions for use on all product labels involved in tank mixing. Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture.
Before mixing components, always perform a compatibility jar test. For 20 gallons per acre spray volume, use 3.3 cups (800 ml) of water. For other spray volumes, adjust rates accordingly. Only use water from the intended source at the source temperature. Add components in the sequence indicated in the Mixing Order using 2 teaspoons for each pound or 1 teaspoon for each pint of specified label rate per acre. Always cap the jar and invert 10 cycles between component additions.
When the components have all been added to the jar, let the solution stand for 15 minutes. Evaluate the solution for uniformity and stability. The spray solution should not have free oil on the surface, nor fine particles that precipitate to the bottom, nor thick (clabbered) texture. If the spray solution is not compatible, repeat the compatibility test with the addition of a suitable compatibility agent. If the solution is then compatible, use the compatibility agent as directed on its label. If the solution is still incompatible, do not mix the ingredients in the same tank.
(As each product is added to the tank, be sure it is completely dispersed before adding any other product to the mix. Maintain agitation throughout mixing and application processes.)
Water. Begin by agitating a thoroughly clean sprayer tank three-quarters full of clean water.
Agitation. Maintain constant agitation throughout mixing and application.
Inductor. If an inductor is used, rinse it thoroughly after each component has been added.
Products in PVA bags. Place any product contained in water-soluble PVA bags into the mixing tank. Wait until all water-soluble PVA bags have fully dissolved and the product is evenly mixed in the spray tank before continuing.
Emulsifiable concentrates (such as oil concentrate when applicable).
Water-soluble additives (such as AMS or UAN when applicable).
Remaining quantityof water.
Maintain constant agitation during application.
CHEMIGATION USE INSTRUCTION CALIFORNIA ALLOWS USE BY CHEMIGATION ONLY FOR CROPS OF BEANS, CUCURBITS (CUCUMBERS, MELONS, PUMPKINS, SQUASH), PEANUTS, SOYBEANS, STRAWBERRIES, (AND TURF).
Apply Talaris 4.5 F only through the following types of irrigation systems: sprinkler including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move; flood (basin); furrow; border or drip (trickle) irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.
Note: any type of irrigation distribution of fungicide allowing untreated lapses or uneven distribution will result in poor control. Continually monitor calibration. Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from the non-uniform distribution of treated water.
If you have questions about calibration, contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.
Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place.
A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.
FUNGICIDE DILUTION MIX PREPARATION
Clean all chemical mix tank, induction lines, mixing and induction motors and pumps of any prior use pesticide residues, scale or other foreign matter that may interfere with mixing or transfer of the pesticide dilution into the irrigation system. Flush with clean water.
Start by filling the mix tank at least ½ full. Begin agitation. Carefully add the required amount of Talaris 4.5 F and then the rest of the water. Allow time to mix completely.
Observe ALL requirements in the System Requirements section above. Remove scale, pesticide residue, and other foreign matter from the chemical tank and entire injector system. Flush with clean water.
In order to ensure a uniform pesticide suspension and application, be sure to continuously agitate the fungicide tank-mixture during mixing and application.
Inject a greater volume of a more dilute suspension per unit time in order to achieve greater accuracy in distribution and calibration. [An injection ratio of 1:100 is directed for greenhouse systems.]
Do not apply more irrigation water per acre than directed, decreased product performance may occur from the over diluted application. Determine the treatment rate as indicated in the directions for use for crop and pathogen and measure the intended areas of application.
Prepare a suspension of product in the mix tank or stock bucket. Fill the tank with 1/2 or 3/4 of the desired amount of water. Start agitation and add the required amount of product to the solution along with the remaining volume of water. Use sufficient water to ensure full coverage of foliage. Do not use an amount of water that could lead to excessive runoff from target plants. The amount of water will vary according to the amount of foliage requiring coverage and type of equipment but generally, 25 to 100 gallons per acre is adequate.
Chemigation must not be attempted when wind speed favors drift. When system connections or fittings are seen to leak, stop chemigation and repair the component prior to restart. When nozzles are not providing uniform distribution, recalibrate immediately. The system must always remain in good repair.
When chemigation is completed, allow sufficient flush time for pesticide to be cleared from all nozzles and lines prior to shutting off the flow of irrigation water.
