Torino is highly effective in controlling various powdery mildew species and exhibits no cross-resistance with fungicides in other chemical groups such as the aminopyrimidines, DMI's, strobilurins, morpholines, anilinopyrimidines, and MBC's. Torino fungicide offers the grower a new and unique tool to manage powdery mildew and enhance the quality and yield potential of their crop. Torino has displayed some curative activity, though very limited, and should be used as a protectant for the control of powdery mildew. It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Read the entire label before using this product. 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. Torino Fungicide, when diluted with an equal volume of water, is physically compatible with a wide range of commonly used spray products, but the full range of compatibilities under local conditions is not known.
Therefore, it is essential that before using Torino Fungicide in any tank mixture the compatibility of the mixture be established. Add a small amount of this product to an equal volume of water in a small container and then add the other pesticide or spray product and mix thoroughly. DO NOT USE MIXTURES THAT CURDLE, PRECIPITATE, OR GREASE. FOR BEST RESULTS, SPRAY MIXTURES MUST BE USED IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING WITH ADEQUATE AGITATION. DIRECTIONS FOR AERIAL OR GROUND SPRAY APPLICATION.Torino Fungicide is a 10% suspension concentrate for the control of powdery mildew on the crops listed on this label. Thorough spray coverage is essential for optimal performance. Use adequate spray volume to ensure complete coverage of foliage. Users must read, understand, and follow the label use rates and restrictions. Minimum label rates may be used under low disease pressure conditions while maximum label rates and shortened spray intervals are recommended under high disease pressure.
For application, determine the number of acres to be treated, the recommended label use rate, and the spray volume per acre. Prepare only the amount of spray solution that is necessary to spray the measured acres. Calibrate spray equipment prior to use. Ground Application: For optimal disease control use thorough spray coverage. Good spray coverage is a function of spray pressure, spray volume per acre, nozzle type and spacing and application equipment speed.
Mixing and Application Instructions for Torino Fungicide. Torino Fungicide is a liquid suspension concentrate formulation that readily disperses in water to form a spray mixture, which may be applied by ground or air. 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 or each product in the tank mixture.
Prepare only enough spray mixture as can be applied on the day of mixing. Fill tank 1/4 -1/2 full with the required amount of total spray volume of water. Shake the product container well before using. Begin agitation and add product.
Allow mixing in tank for 2 minutes after filling or until thoroughly mixed before applying. Maintain continuous agitation during mixing and application to assure uniform suspension. If mixture sits without agitation for extended periods, agitate the mixture for at least 10 minutes before use.Equip spray system with a 50-mesh inline filter, which will protect nozzles that are typically used. Nozzles may also be equipped with 50-mesh nozzle filters or 25 to 50 mesh (equivalent) slotted nozzle filters. Torino Fungicide may be unstable in water pH below 4 and above 9. If necessary, buffer water to obtain optimum pH range. Special Instructions for Tank Mixing Torino Fungicide.
Users must follow the most restrictive directions for use and precautionary statements of each product in the tank mixture. When tank mixing Torino Fungicide with other products, introduce the products into the tank in the following order: (1) water soluble packets (2) wettable powders (3) water dispersable granules (4) flowable liquids including Torino Fungicide (5) emulsifiable concentrates and (6) adjuvants and/or oils. Always allow each product to fully disperse before adding the next product. The use of adjuvants or additives may enhance the fungicide performance of Torino Fungicide under some conditions. Local environmental conditions may affect crop sensitivity.
Since all possible tank mix combinations have not been examined, test the combination on a small section of the crop to be sprayed to ensure that injury will not occur as a result of application. Consult a Gowan Company representative, local agricultural authorities, or local extension service for more information and directions on adjuvants and additives.Apply a minimum finished spray volume of 5 gallons per acre by air or 20 gallons per acre by ground unless otherwise directed under crop specific directions. For best results, it is important to obtain thorough and uniform spray coverage of the plant. To clean the sprayer after use, drain and flush with water. Use rinsate on crop according to label instructions or dispose of in an approved manner (See STORAGE AND DISPOSAL).
To achieve optimum pest control, it is important to obtain thorough and uniform spray coverage. Choose a finished spray volume appropriate for the size of tree or vine and amount of foliage which will provide thorough coverage throughout the canopy. Also follow recommendations listed under crop specific directions.
Aerial applications may not provide as thorough coverage as groundapplications and subsequently disease control may be reduced. For resistance management, Torino Fungicide contains a Group U6 fungicide.
Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Torino Fungicide and other Group U6 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed. To delay fungicide resistance consider.1 Avoiding the consecutive use of Torino Fungicide or other Group U6 fungicides that have a similar target site of action on the same pathogens. 2 Using tank-mixtures or premixes with fungicides from different target site of action Groups as long as the involved products are all. Registered for the same use and are both effective at the tank mix or prepack rate on the pathogen(s) of concern. 3 Basing fungicide use on a comprehensive IPM program.
4 Monitoring treated fungal populations for loss of field efficacy. Do not plant back any crop other than those on this label within 30 days following the last application.Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
