Resistance Management Recommendations
For resistance management, please note that Apron Advance Seed Treatment contains Group 1, 4 and 12 fungicides. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Apron Advance Seed Treatment and other Group 1, 4 and 12 fungicides. A gradual or total loss of pest control may occur over time if these fungicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay fungicide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of Apron Advance Seed Treatment or other Group 1, 4 and 12 fungicides with different groups that control the same pathogens.
Use tank mixtures with fungicides from a different group when such use is permitted.
Follow all appropriate directions, precautions, etc. as specified on the respective product labels. The most conservative restrictions apply.
Fungicide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
Monitor treated fungal populations for resistance development.
If disease continues to progress after treatment with this product, do not increase the use rate. Discontinue use of this product, and switch to another fungicide with a different target site of action, if available.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for specific crops and pathogens.
