           lead to reduction of DON below the statutory limit in wheat grain.

           C = Control

           Resistance

           Use Cauldron as part of an Integrated Crop Management (ICM) strategy incorporating other
           methods of control, including where appropriate other fungicides with a different mode of
           action.
           Cauldron contains epoxiconazole, a DMI fungicide. Resistance to some DMI fungicides has
           been identified in Septoria leaf blotch (Mycosphaerella graminicola) which may seriously affect
           the performance of some products. For further advice on resistance management in DMIs
           contact your agronomist or specialist advisor, and visit the FRAG-UK website.

           Cauldron contains boscalid which belongs to the SDHI (carboxamide) group of fungicides. To
           minimise the risk of resistance occurring, apply a maximum of two SDHI fungicide sprays per
           cereal crop.


           3. Crops

           Cauldron is a broad spectrum fungicide with systemic, protectant and curative properties for
           use in winter wheat, spring wheat, winter barley, spring barley, oats, rye and triticale for disease
           control as summarised above.

           Time of Application

           Apply Cauldron at the start of foliar or stem based disease attack. A maximum of two
           applications can be made before watery ripe stage (GS 71) in winter and spring wheat, rye and
           triticale, and before beginning of flowering (GS 61) in winter and spring barley and oats.

           Rate of Application

           Apply 2.5 litres Cauldron in a minimum of 200 litres of water per hectare.

           Qualified recommendation
           Cauldron may be applied at 2.5 litres per hectare in 100 litres of water per hectare although
           efficacy at this reduced volume has not been evaluated. Therefore application at 100 litres
           water per hectare is at user’s risk with regard to biological efficacy.


           4. Following crops

           After treating a cereal crop with Cauldron, onions, oats, sugar beet, oilseed rape, cabbages,
           carrots, sunflowers, barley, lettuce, ryegrass, dwarf French beans, peas, potatoes, clover,
           wheat, field beans and maize may be sown as the following crop




~xmam1330420866.indd 4                                                                                   28.02.2012 10:21:11
           5. Mixing and Spraying

           For use by tractor mounted/trailed sprayer only.

           Half fill the spray tank with clean water and start the agitation. SHAKE THE CONTAINER WELL
           before use and pour in the required amount of product. Rinse any empty containers thoroughly
           and add rinsings to the spray tank. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation until
           spraying is completed.

           On emptying the container, rinse container thoroughly by using an integrated pressure rinsing
           device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose
           of container safely.




           The following does not form part of the product label under S.I. No. 83 of 2003:

           With many products there is a general risk of resistance developing to the active ingredients.
           For this reason a change in activity cannot be ruled out. It is generally impossible to predict
           with certainty how resistance may develop because there are so many crop and use connected
           ways of influencing this. We therefore have to exclude liability for damage or loss attributable
           to any such resistance that may develop. To help minimise any loss in activity the BASF
           recommended rate should in all events be adhered to.

           Numerous, particularly regional or regionally attributable, factors can influence the activity of
           the product. Examples include weather and soil conditions, crop plant varieties, crop rotation,
           treatment times, application amounts, admixture with other products, appearance of organisms
           resistant to active ingredients and spraying techniques. Under particular conditions a change
           in activity or damage to plants cannot be ruled out. The manufacturer or supplier is therefore
           unable to accept any liability in such circumstances. All goods supplied by us are of high grade
           and we believe them to be suitable, but as we cannot exercise control over their mixing or use
           or the weather conditions during and after application, which may affect the performance of the
           material, all conditions and warranties, statutory or otherwise, as to the quality or fitness for any
           purpose of our goods are excluded and no responsibility will be accepted by us for any damage
           or injury whatsoever arising from their storage, handling, application or use; but nothing should
           be deemed to exclude or restrict any liability upon us which cannot be excluded or restricted
           under the provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 or any similar applicable law.
