About this Product

 

Aprovia® provides broad spectrum disease control in several specialty crops, including vegetables, grapes, low-bush blueberries and pome fruit. The high potency of Aprovia delivers improved disease control and more consistent performance.

Applied to foliage, Aprovia provides excellent leaf rust control in low-bush blueberries and apple scab in orchards.

Product Benefits

  • High intrinsic activity
  • Excellent residual control
  • The convenience of a solo formulation that can be safely and easily tank mixed for maximum flexibility
  • No cross-resistance to strobilurin (Group 11) and triazole (Group 3) technology

Packaging

One case contains 6 x 2L jugs

Uses

For use on:

  • Blueberries (low bush only) in the non-cropping year of production
  • Pome Fruit

See label for a complete list of registered crops.

For management of:

Blueberries (in the non-cropping year):

For control of: Blueberry leaf rust (Thekopsora minima)

For suppression of: Valdensinia leaf spot (Valdensinia heterodoxa)

Pome Fruit:
For control of:

  • Alternaria blotch (Alternaria mali)
  • Powdery mildew (Podosphaera leucotricha)
  • Scab (Venturia inaequalis and Venturia pyrina)

For a complete list of crops and diseases controlled, please refer to the label.

Application Information

Use Rates

Blueberries: 

  • For leaf rust: 200 – 300 mL/acre (500 - 750 mL/ha)
  • For Valdensinia leaf spot: 300 mL/acre (750 mL/ha)

Pome Fruit: 

  • For scab: 120 – 200 mL/acre (300 – 500 mL/ha)
  • For powdery mildew and Alternaria blotch: 200 mL/acre (500 mL/ha)

Apply the higher rate and shorter interval under conditions of high disease pressures.

Water Volume

Blueberries: Minimum of 20-30 gal/acre (200-300 L/ha) for ground applications. 
Pome Fruit: Minimum of 38 gal/acre (375 L/ha) for ground applications.

For best results, sufficient water volume must be used to provide thorough coverage. 

Thorough coverage is necessary to provide good disease control. Applications using nozzles, sufficient water volume and pressure to provide thorough and uniform coverage generally provide the most effective disease control.

Application Method

Airblast, Ground

Application Information

Blueberries: Blueberry leaf rust and Valdensinia leaf spot

  • Apply at first sign of disease in the sprout year.
  • Repeat application at intervals of 10-14 days when disease pressure is severe or when agronomic or weather conditions are conducive to disease development or movement.
  • Research has shown that optimal timing of Aprovia for leaf rust control is at or around tip die back.
  • Only apply in the non-cropping year of production.

Pome Fruit:

Scab – Protective Spray Schedule

  • Apply starting at 6-13 mm (¼-½ inch) green tip or when environmental conditions become conducive for scab.
  • Repeat application at intervals of 7-10 days.
  • If disease pressure is high, use the highest rate.
  • Continue through petal fall until the threat of primary scab is complete.

Scab – Forecasting Spray Schedule

  • Use a forecasting system beginning at green tip.
  • Apply within 48 hours of the onset of an infection period.
  • Apply a follow-up spray after 7 days. 

Powdery mildew and Alternaria blotch

  • Begin applications preventively.
  • Apply Aprovia alone or in combination with other non-Group 7 fungicides.

Mixing Order

WALES: E (emulsifiable concentrate)

  1. Add 1/2 - 2/3 of the required amount of water to the spray or mixing tank.
  2. With the agitator running, add Aprovia to the tank.
  3. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water.
  4. Begin application of the spray solution after Aprovia has completely dispersed into the mix water.
  5. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been sprayed.

Effects of Weather

  • Avoid application when heavy rain is forecast.
  • Do not apply during periods of dead calm.
  • Avoid application of this product when winds are gusty.

Use Restrictions

  • Do not apply Aprovia through any type of irrigation equipment or through any ultra-low volume (ULV) spray system.
  • Do not use in greenhouses (alone or in tank mixtures).
  • Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from feed and foodstuffs, and out of the reach of children and animals.
  • Do not apply by air.

Potatoes: If a 0.75 L/ha/season in-furrow application is made, DO NOT apply more than 1 L/ha/season of Aprovia fungicide in subsequent foliar applications. 

Blueberries: Do not apply more than 600 mL/acre/season (1.5 L/ha/season).

Pome Fruit: Do not apply more than two consecutive sprays before alternating to a non-Group 7 containing fungicide. Do not apply more than 800 mL/acre/season (2 L/ha/season).

Rainfastness

1 hour or when dry

Crop Safety

Planting time from last application:

  • 0 days for: Potatoes and tuberous and corm vegetable subgroup (CG 1C), Dried shelled pea and bean subgroup (CG 6C), Soybeans, Fruiting vegetables crop group (CG 8-09), Cucurbit vegetables crop group (CG 9), Cereals (wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale), Corn (field, sweet, pop and specialty), Rapeseed subgroup (CG 20A).

Tank Mixes

Pome Fruit:
For improved fruit scab control, combine Aprovia with a protectant fungicide registered to control scab (such as Allegro 500F Fungicide). Only apply in combination on crops appearing on the labels of both partner products.

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 7 Fungicide

Mode of Action

Succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI). Aprovia is a translaminar fungicide; it penetrates the leaf to provide protection on both sides. In addition, Aprovia sticks very well to the leaf surface, making it very rainfast.

Preventive activity against disease
Aprovia acts quickly, targeting disease spores before they can germinate on leaves.
Early curative activity
When applied preventively, Aprovia protects against spore germination and direct infection. Once the leaves or fruit become infected, Aprovia can stop mycelial growth but not control lesions that are already present.

Resistance Management

For resistance management, Aprovia contains a Group 7 fungicide in the succinyl dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) class. Any fungal population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Solatenol™ (benzovindiflupyr) and other Group 7 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.
