PRODUCT INFORMATION

Ridomil Gold SL is a systemic fungicide for use on selected crops to control certain diseases caused by members of the Oomycete class of fungi.

PRODUCT USE RESTRICTIONS

Do not use Ridomil Gold SL in greenhouses or other structures such as lath houses, float houses, and hydroponic facilities.

Do not use Ridomil Gold SL for disease control in bedding plants, transplant trays, or nurseries except where specifically allowed in certain crop sections.

DO NOT USE RIDOMIL GOLD SL AS A FOLIAR APPLICATION UNLESS SPECIFIED ON THIS LABEL.

Do not dip plants or roots, spray bare roots, or use a transplant water treatment with solutions containing Ridomil Gold SL except where specifically allowed in certain crop sections.

Under conditions conducive to severe disease pressure, additional fungicide applications beyond the number allowed by this label may be needed. Under these conditions, use another fungicide registered for the crop/disease appearing on this label.

Where rate ranges are specified on this label, use the higher rate when heavy disease pressure is expected and the lower rate when disease pressure is expected to be light, unless otherwise noted.

Maximum usage when applying both metalaxyl- and mefenoxam-containing products to the same crop within the same season: Do not apply more than the maximum seasonal total for the active ingredient as stated on the label of the product containing the lowest seasonal total on that crop.

Soil-applied maximum application rates include all uses in Part 1 and all uses in Part 2 except foliar applications.

Replanting

If replanting is necessary, additional applications of Ridomil Gold SL may be made, provided that the total amount of active ingredient in Ridomil Gold SL applied does not exceed the maximum allowed for the specific crop.

PRODUCT USE INSTRUCTIONS

Application: Apply Ridomil Gold SL by ground or air in sufficient water or liquid fertilizer to provide uniform coverage of the soil surface. Apply in a minimum of 20 gal per acre for ground applications and 3 gal per acre by air. Refer to the Directions for Use for specific crop application directions. Refer to Application Instructions for band and in-furrow calculations.

Moving Ridomil Gold into the Root or Seed Zone:

To ensure maximum activity on soilborne pathogens, Ridomil Gold SL must be moved into the seed or root zone of the plant. Follow the specific crop directions. Placement in the seed or root zone includes in-furrow sprays, soil injections, crown dips. Incorporation includes preplant incorporated applications, soil drenches, or shank applications. For soil surface sprays, rainfall will move the fungicide into the seed or root zone, but if rain is not expected within 24 hours after application, mechanically incorporate (before planting) or sprinkler irrigate (after planting) with

1

/

2

to 1 inch of water.

Efficacy: Under certain conditions conducive to extended infection periods, use another registered fungicide for additional applications if maximum amount of Ridomil Gold SL has been used. If resistant isolates to Group 4 fungicides are present, efficacy can be reduced. Under high disease pressure, it is recommended to use the highest rate and shortest interval when needed.

Crop Tolerance: Plant tolerance has been found acceptable for all crops on the label, however, not all possible tank-mix combinations have been tested under all conditions. When possible, it is recommended to test the combinations on a small portion of the crop to ensure a phytotoxic response will not occur as a result of application.

Spray Drift Management: To avoid spray drift, do not apply when conditions favor drift beyond the target area. Avoid spray overlap as crop injury may occur. The interaction of many equipment and weather related factors determine the potential for spray drift. AVOIDING SPRAY DRIFT AT THE

APPLICATION SITE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE APPLICATOR AND THE GROWER. More information on managing spray drift can be found on the Syngenta Crop Protection website under Stewardship http://www.syngentacropprotection-us.com/enviro/driftmanagement/

IPM: Ridomil Gold SL should be integrated into an overall disease and pest management strategy

(IPM) whenever the use of a fungicide is required. Cultural practices known to reduce disease development should be followed. Consult your local agricultural authorities for additional IPM strategies established for your area.

Rotational Crops: For crops that are on the label there is a 0-day plant back. For other crops refer to the table below.

FUNGICIDE

Ridomil Gold SL is in the Group 4 class fungicide having a specific mode of action and is subject to the development of insensitive strains of fungi. Fungal pathogens can develop resistance to products with the same mode of action when used repeatedly. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities for resistance management strategies that are complementary to those in this label. Resistance management strategies may include rotating and/or tank mixing with products having different modes of action or limiting the total number of applications per season. Syngenta encourages responsible resistance management to ensure effective long-term control of the fungal diseases on this label. Ridomil Gold SL should not be alternated or tank mixed with any fungicide to which resistance has already developed.

SPRAY EQUIPMENT

Nozzles

• Equip sprayers with nozzles that provide accurate and uniform application.

• Nozzles should be the same size and uniformly spaced across the boom.

• Calibrate sprayer before use.

• It is suggested that screens be used to protect the pump and to prevent nozzles from clogging.

• Screens placed on suction side of pump should be 16-mesh or coarser.

• Do not place a screen in the recirculation line.

• Use 50-mesh or coarser screens between the pump and boom, and where required, at the nozzles.

• Check nozzle manufacturer’s recommendations.

Pump

• Use a pump with capacity to:

(1) Maintain 35-40 psi at nozzles

(2) Provide sufficient agitation in tank to keep mixture in suspension - this requires recirculation of 10% of tank volume per minute.

• Use a jet agitator or liquid sparge tube for agitation.

• Do not air sparge.

For more information on spray equipment and calibration, consult sprayer manufacturers and state recommendations. For specific local directions and spray schedules, consult the current state agricultural recommendations.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

• Prepare no more spray mixture than is required for the immediate operation.

• Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product.

• Agitate the spray solution before and during application.

mix water.

• Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been sprayed.

Ridomil Gold SL + Tank Mixtures: Ridomil Gold SL is usually compatible with all tank-mix partners listed on this label. To determine the physical compatibility of Ridomil Gold SL with other products, use a jar test. Using a quart jar, add the proportionate amounts of the products to 1 qt of water. Add wettable powders and water dispersible granular products first, then liquid flowables, and emulsifiable concentrates last. After thoroughly mixing, let stand for at least 20 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be remixed readily, it is physically compatible. Once compatibility has been proven, use the same procedure for adding required ingredients to the spray tank.

Do not combine Ridomil Gold SL in the spray tank with pesticides, surfactants or fertilizers, unless compatibility charts or your own prior use has shown that the combination is physically compatible, effective and non-injurious under your conditions of use.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Ground Application (Broadcast):

• Apply in a minimum of 20 gal of water per acre, unless specified otherwise.

Ground Application (Banded):

• Application rates in the Directions for Use are generally expressed as an amount per acre which refers to the total crop area to be treated. If using a banded application, use proportionally less product using the formula below: band width in inches row spacings in inches

X broadcast rate per acre

= amount needed per acre of fi eld

Ground Applications (In-Furrow):

• Apply Ridomil Gold SL as an in-furrow spray in 3-7 gal per acre of water at planting.

• Mount the spray nozzle so the spray is directed into the furrow just before the seed are covered.

• The following table provides common row spacings and the amount of Ridomil Gold SL to apply per acre.

Application through Irrigation Systems (Chemigation)

• Apply this product only through center pivot, solid set, hand move, moving wheel, micro-sprinkler, or drip 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 questions about calibration, you should 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.

• Ridomil Gold SL must be applied on the schedule specified in the specific crop use directions, not according to the irrigation schedule.

Note: Do not inject Ridomil Gold SL at full strength or deterioration of valves and seals may occur.

Use a dilution ratio of at least 15 parts water to 1 part Ridomil Gold SL in the mix tank. Ridomil Gold

SL can affect many seal materials. Leather seals are best. EPDM or silicone rubber seals can be used, but should be replaced once a year. Do not use Viton, Buna-N, Neoprene, or PVC seals.

Operating Instructions

1. The system must contain a functional check-valve, vacuum relief valve, and low pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water-source contamination from backflow.

2. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check-valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.

3. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.

4. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops.

5. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.

6. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

7. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

Specific Instructions for Public Water Systems

1. Public water system means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption if such 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.

2. Chemigation systems connected to public water systems must contain a functional, reducedpressure zone, back-flow preventer (RPZ) or the functional equivalent in the water supply line upstream from the point of pesticide introduction. As an option to the RPZ, the water from the public water system should be discharged into a reservoir tank prior to pesticide introduction.

There shall be a complete physical break (air gap) between the outlet end of the fill pipe and the top or overflow rim of the reservoir tank of at least twice the inside diameter of the fill pipe.

3. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.

4. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.

5. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops, or in cases where there is no water pump, when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.

6. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

7. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

Environmental Hazards: Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present, or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift from treated areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate.

Groundwater Advisory: Mefenoxam has properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in groundwater. This chemical may leach into groundwater if used in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow.

Surface Water Advisory: This product may contaminate water through drift of spray in wind. This product has a high potential for runoff for several months or more after application. Poorly draining soils and soils with shallow water tables are more prone to produce runoff that contains this product.

A level, well-maintained vegetative buffer strip between areas to which this product is applied and surface water features such as ponds, streams, and springs will reduce the potential for contamination of water from rainfall runoff. Runoff of this product will be reduced by avoiding applications when rainfall is forecast to occur within 48 hours.

Physical or Chemical Hazards: Do not use or store near heat or open flame.
