Acrobat SC, in combination with the protectant fungicides Polyram DF or Penncozeb 750DF (mancozeb) provides excellent control of a wide range of diseases. The use of mixing partners is a key strategy to minimise the development of resistance to dimethomorph.
Protectant disease spectrum of
Penncozeb 750DF and Polyram DF
Penncozeb 750DF and Polyram DF are both non systemic, protectant fungicides that display activity against most of the fungal groups. Penncozeb 750DF contains 750 g/kg of mancozeb and Polyram DF has 700 g/kg of metiram.
Both are multi site fungicides belonging to the dithiocarbamate chemical family, which is classed as Group M3 for resistance management purposes.
Penncozeb 750DF and Polyram DF in combination with Acrobat SC will protect against the following diseases.
Green = downy mildew and late blight are controlled by dimethomorph (Acrobat SC)
tank mixed with either Penncozeb 750DF (mancozeb) or Polyram DF.
Other diseases are controlled by either Penncozeb 750DF (mancozeb) or Polyram DF.
Check the registration status of Polyram DF for each crop before use.
Acrobat SC should always be mixed with Penncozeb 750DF (mancozeb) or Polyram DF according to label instructions. Due to the range of mancozeb formulations available, compatibility has not been tested on all products. Users are advised to test the tank mix on a small area of the crop to be treated, prior to use.
Acrobat SC can be tank-mixed with most commonly used pesticides. The compatibility of the mixing partner should also be carefully considered when using Acrobat SC.
Avoid mixing with strongly alkaline or acidic materials.
Half fill spray vat with water and commence agitation.
Add correct amount of Penncozeb 750DF or Polyram DF as directed and allow to disperse.
Add required volume of Acrobat SC according to the label directions.
Add remainder of the water with agitation running.
Add wetting agent, if required, when spray tank is full.
Ensure thorough mixing and constant agitation to keep the product in suspension.
