									DITHANE DG -RAINSHIELD
A water dispersible granular fungicide for control of fungal diseases in vegetables, field crops, fruits,
vines and ornamentals . It is specially formulated to resist wash-off by rain or irrigation water.

Active Ingredient: 750g/kg Mancozeb

Formulation : Water Dispersible Granules (DG)
                   Dry flow able, free flowing, non-dusty granule that quickly disperses
                   and suspends into water.

Mode of Action
Dithane DG is a broad-spectrum protectant fungicide which acts on six enzymatic pathways(multi-site
action) in the fungal cell to inhibit spore germination.
The product sticks and also moves and spreads with water to trouble spots where spores can be
active. The unique surfactants and wetting agents allow due-cycles or rainfall to re-distribute
Dithane DG to areas of leaf missed by initial spray deposit, especially lower areas of leaves (veins and
margins) where fungi spores tend to congregate.

Directions for use
Mixing
Slowly place the product into spray tank as it is being filled, or thoroughly premix in a nurse tank for
concentrate or air craft sprayers. Maintain sufficient agitation during mixing and spraying. when
preparing spray solutions for use in a hand sprayer, premix in a small container, and then add to a
sprayer containing one third to half the desired final water volume.

Timing of application
For best results, apply as a regular spray programme. Thorough coverage of the treated crop is
essential. Application should be made before overhead irrigation.
Compatibility
Dithane DG is compatible with most commonly used agricultural fungicides and insecticides, however
before preparing tank mixes, the user is advised to check compatibility with the other product
recommendations.
