Directions for use:
ChampION may be applied through standard ground or aerial spray equipment. For recommended dilution rates for ChampION please see label. The volume of water applied per hectare will depend on the crop being sprayed and where necessary should increase during the season to ensure complete coverage of all stages of the crop. In conditions of severe disease pressure use the higher recommended rate and reduce the spray interval.
