  2.1 Resistance

  In order to minimise risk of resistance:

  Signum contains a QoI fungicide, pyraclostrobin and the SDHI (carboxamide) fungicide, boscalid. Signum
  should be used in accordance with FRAC resistance management advice for QoI and carboxamide mixtures.

  Avoid using consecutive applications of Signum. Apply Signum in alternation with fungicides from a different
  cross-resistance group with satisfactory efficacy against the targeted diseases.

  In line with FRAC guidance, the number of Signum applications should be no more than half of the total number
  of fungicide applications per season. Use no more than a maximum of three applications of Signum per crop
  in brassicas; no more than three applications per year in blackcurrants and no more than two applciations per
  crop in other crops.


  3. Crops

  3.1 Brassicas (broccoli, Brussels sprout, cabbage, calabrese, cauliflower)

  Time of Application

  Apply Signum as a protectant spray or at the first sign of disease. Repeat sprays at 3 – 4 week intervals
  depending on disease pressure. Three applications can be made but a minimum of 14 days must elapse
  between the last spray and harvest.

  Rate of Application

  Apply 1 kg of Signum in a minimum of 200 litres of water per hectare. In dense crops, increase the water volume
  up to a maximum of 1000 litres of water per hectare to achieve adequate penetration and good coverage of
  the crop.

  3.2 Strawberries

  Time of Application

  For optimum control of grey mould , apply Signum as a protectant spray from the beginning of bloom (white
  bud).

  For the control of powdery mildew and Blackspot, apply Signum as a protectant spray before the appearance
  of disease symptoms.




~xmam1326795620.indd 4                                                                           17.01.2012 11:20:25
  Applications should be made in sequence with other products as part of a fungicide spray programme applied
  during flowering at 7–10 day intervals.

  Two applications can be made but a minimum of 3 days must elapse between the last spray and harvest.

  Rate of Application
  Apply 1.8 kg of Signum in a water volume of 450 – 2000 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage of
  the foliage and fruitlets.

  Qualified minor use recommendation
  Signum may be applied at 1.8 kg per hectare in 400 litres water per hectare although efficacy at this reduced
  volume has not been evaluated. Therefore application at 400 litres water per hectare is at user‘s risk with regard
  to biological efficacy.

  3.3 Carrots
  Time of Application
  Apply Signum as a protectant spray or at the first sign of disease. Repeat sprays at 7–14 day intervals depending
  on disease pressure. Two applications can be made but a minimum of 14 days must elapse between the last
  spray and harvest.

  Rate of Application: 0.75 –1.0 kg/ha
  For control of powdery mildew and moderate control of alternaria, apply 0.75 kg of Signum in a water volume of
  200 – 900 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage of the foliage.
  For moderate control of Sclerotinia rot, increase dose rate to 1 kg/ha of Signum in a water volume of 200-
  900 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage of the foliage.

  3.4 Lettuce
  Time of Application
  Apply Signum as a protectant spray from 1– 2 weeks after planting. Apply sprays at 10 –14 day intervals
  depending on disease pressure. Two applications can be made but a minimum of 14 days must elapse
  between the last spray and harvest.

  Rate of Application
  Apply 1.5 kg of Signum in a water volume of 200 – 900 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage of
  the foliage.

  3.5 Field Beans
  Time of Application
  Apply Signum as a protectant spray or at the first sign of disease. For optimum control of rust and moderate
  control of chocolate spot, apply sprays from early flower and repeat at a 3 – 4 week interval, depending on
  disease pressure. Two applications can be made but a minimum of 21days must elapse between the last spray
  and harvest.




~xmam1326795620.indd 5                                                                              17.01.2012 11:20:25
  Rate of Application
  Apply 1.0 kg of Signum in a minimum volume of 200 – 300 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage
  of the foliage.

  3.6 Combining peas

  Time of Application

  Apply Signum as a protectant spray or at the first sign of disease. For moderate control of leaf and pod spot
  (Ascochyta pisi), apply sprays from early flower and repeat at a 2 - 3 week interval, depending on disease
  pressure. Two applications can be made but a minimum of 21 days must elapse between the last spray and
  harvest.

  Rate of Application

  Apply 1.0 kg of Signum in a minimum volume of 200 - 400 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage
  of the foliage.

  3.7 Vining peas

  Time of Application

  For moderate control of leaf and pod spot (Ascochyta pisi), apply Signum as a protectant spray or at the first
  sign of disease. One application can be made and a minimum of 14 days must elapse between application and
  harvest. To maintain disease control a subsequent treatment with another product may be required 2 – 3 weeks
  later depending on disease pressure.

  Rate of Application

  Apply 1.0 kg of Signum in a minimum volume of 200 – 400 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage
  of the foliage.

  3.8 Blackcurrants (qualified minor use based on limited efficacy data)

  Time of Application

  Pre-harvest treatment
  For control of grey mould (Botrytis cinerea), apply Signum as a protectant spray from the start of flowering.

  For moderate control of American gooseberry mildew and blackcurrant leaf spot, apply Signum as a protectant
  spray before the appearance of disease symptoms.

  Applications should be made in sequence with other products as part of a disease control programme, in which
  case the interval between use of Signum and subsequent fungicide treatment should be between 10−14 days,
  depending on disease pressure. Two applications of Signum can be made but a minimum of 3 days must
  elapse between the application of Signum and harvest.




~xmam1326795620.indd 6                                                                             17.01.2012 11:20:25
  Post-harvest-treatment

  Signum may be used as post-harvest treatment to help protect against American gooseberry mildew and
  blackcurrant leaf spot infections, thus reducing the possibility of infection-induced premature leaf drop and
  reduced bush vigour, which may adversely affect crop yield in the subsequent year. Apply Signum as a
  protectant spray after blackcurrants have been harvested and before leaf senesence.

  Rate of Application

  Apply 1.5 kg of Signum in a water volume of 200 − 1000 litres of water per hectare, ensuring good coverage of
  the foliage and fruit.

  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 any applicable law.

             DO NOT ALLOW DIRECT SPRAY from ground crop sprayers to fall within 5m of the top of the
             bank of a static or flowing waterbody or within 1m of the top of a ditch which is dry at the time of
             application. Direct spray away from water.
             DO NOT ALLOW DIRECT SPRAY from hand-held sprayers to fall within 1m of the top of the bank
             of a static or flowing waterbody. Aim spray away from water.
             DO NOT ALLOW DIRECT SPRAY from broadcast air-assisted sprayers to fall within 20m of the top
             of the bank of a static or flowing waterbody or within 5m of the top of a ditch which is dry at the time
             of application. Direct spray away from water.
             KEEP AWAY FROM FOOD, DRINK AND ANIMAL FEEDINGSTUFFS.
             KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
             KEEP IN ORIGINAL CONTAINER, tightly closed, in a safe place.
             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 safely.
             STORAGE
             Store in a suitable pesticide store, keep dry and protect from frost.
        (ii) PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
             In tests with a range of pesticide products, protective gloves made of nitrile rubber at least 0.5 mm
             thick and 300 mm long have been found to be the most suitable. Gloves made of butyl rubber,
             eoprene and PVC can also offer good protection. Gloves must protect the whole hand and wrist
             and repeated use of these gloves depends upon spillages being washed off immediately. The
             gloves should be thoroughly washed after each operation.
             Decontaminate all personal protective equipment after use. When this is not possible dispose of as
             contaminated wastes.
