Topsin 4.5FL Fungicide is a flowable liquid formula that provides effective control of fungal diseases on a wide variety of crops. Using Thiophanate-methyl as its active ingredient, this specially formulated fungicide delivers reliable systemic control of listed diseases such as powdery mildew, downy spot, leaf spot, white mold, rot diseases, and more. Product can be applied using ground and aerial equipment with sufficient spray volume to ensure thorough coverage. Available in a 2.5-gallon jug.
Anthracnose, brown rot blossom blight, downy spot, early leaf spot, fruit brown rot, gray mold, leaf blight, limb rot, liver spot, needle cast, peach scab, powdery mildew, rust, scab, stem end blight, tip blight, web blotch, white mold, white rot.
Apply Topsin 4.5FL with ground or aerial equipment, using sufficient volume of spray to provide thorough coverage. Continuous agitation is required to keep the material in
suspension. United Phosphorus, Inc. does not recommend tank mixes with highly alkaline pesticides, such as Bordeaux mixture or lime sulfur. No claim of compatibility with other pesticides is implied. Use the higher rate under conditions of severe disease pressure. Also, see local State Extension Service recommendations for application schedules.
Use the fl. oz. Acre rate for concentrate sprays (less than 400 gallons on apples, less than 300 gallons on stonefruit). Use the fl. oz./100 gals. rate for dilute ground applications. For aerial applications, use a minimum of 5 gallons/ A for row crops, and a minimum of 10 gallons/A for tree crops. For ground applications use a minimum of 20 gallons/A for row crops and 30 gallons/ A for tree crops. Higher spray volume will generally result in better coverage and better disease control. Lack of control when using below minimum spray volumes is solely at the risk of the applicator/user, including use of electrostatic sprayers.
Chemigation instructions follow. Do not apply through any irrigation system unless these instructions are followed.
For crops without labeled uses of thiophanate-methyl, observe a 30-day plantback restriction.
Use on all labeled non-bearing tree fruit and tree nuts: Topsin 4.5FL may be used for control of the diseases listed on the label for these crops during the non-bearing years of new plantings, and on nursery stock. All use directions and limitations must be followed, except for the PHI, which is not applicable. Begin applications as disease is first observed or expected. Tank mixing with a protectant fungicide is strongly recommended for resistance management.
RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: To avoid the development of tolerant or resistant strains of fungi, Topsin 4.5FL should always be tank-mixed with a fungicide of different chemistry, andlor a fungicide of different chemistry should be alternated with Topsin 4.5FL. DO NOT USE PRODUCTS CONTAINING THIABENDAZOLE OR OTHER PRODUCTS CONTAINING THIOPHANATE-METHYL IN COMBINATION, IN ROTATION, OR AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR TOPSIN 4.5FL AS THEY ARE OF SIMILAR CHEMISTRY AND WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESISTANCE. If after using Topsin 4.5FL as recommended, and the treatment is not effective, a tolerant or resistant strain of fungi may be present. Discontinue the use of Topsin 4.5FL for at least one season. As long as these precautions are followed, Topsin 4.5FL can be useful for disease control, even if resistant strains are present.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE THROUGH CHEMIGATION SYSTEMS USE IN CALIFORNIA BY CHEMIGATION ONLY FOR BEANS, CUCURBITS (CANTALOUPE, CASABA, CUCUMBERS, MELONS, PUMPKINS, SQUASH, WATERMELONS), PEANUTS, POTATOES, SOYBEANS, STRAWBERRIES, AND SUGAR BEETS.
Apply this product only through sprinkler irrigation systems including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, solid set or hand move; or drip (mini-micro sprinklers, strip tubing, trickle) irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.
Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from nonuniform distribution of treated water.
If you have any questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.
A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision ofthe responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.
Do not connect chemigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide irrigation to any public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place. Public water system means a system for the provision of piped water for human consumption if such a system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days out of the year.

SEE LABEL FOR COMPLETE RATES AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.
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 from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash water.
