|Seed treatment for the control of various smut diseases in wheat, barley and oats
Chemical Group Triazole
Rancona is a micro emulsion (liquid) seed dressing containing ipconazole for treatment of wheat, barley and oats for control of various fungal smut diseases. Rancona also contains cypermethrin for control of stored grain insects.
Mixing & Application
Rancona may be applied to seed undiluted or may be mixed with water if required to achieve optimum coverage of grain. This requirement will depend on the equipment in use and the rates to be applied. Use only through equipment designed to apply suspension concentrate or slurry seed treatments to grain.
Uniform application to seed is necessary to ensure best disease protection and optimum performance.
Diluted product should be agitated before and during application. DO NOT allow diluted product to stand for long periods, e.g. overnight, without agitating thoroughly before continuing application.
Seed treatment should not be used on seed with more than 12% moisture content, or on sprung, damaged or severely pinched seed, or seed of poor viability. If in doubt, have a germination test carried out on the seed before treatment to ensure that it is of acceptable standard.
Fungicide Resistance Warning
GROUP 3 FUNGICIDE
Rancona is a member of the DMI group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance management the product is a Group 3 fungicide. Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to the product and other Group 3 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungal population if these fungicides are used repeatedly. These resistant fungi will not be controlled by this product or other Group 3 fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss.
Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant fungi.
Insecticide Resistance Warning
GROUP 3A INSECTICIDE
For insecticide resistance management Rancona is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Rancona and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Rancona or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Rancona on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Rancona control resistant insects. Rancona may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Chemtura Australia Pty Ltd representative or local agricultural department agronomist.
