Application Method

Aerial, Ground

Application Information

In-furrow application only.

Apply as an in-furrow spray in 50 to 140 L/ha of water at planting.

At a minimum mount a spray nozzle so the spray is directed into the furrow in a 15 to 20 cm band just before the seed is covered.

The optimum spray nozzle configuration requires 2 nozzles per row: one nozzle positioned before the seed piece drops at a 20 degree angle from straight down – angled back towards the seed drop area and a second nozzle positioned to apply after the seed has dropped and before hill closure at an angle of 60 degrees from straight down angled towards the hill closers.

Mixing Order

Wales Symbols: Elatus A = L. Elatus B = E.

  1. Add ½ - ¾ of the required amount of water to the spray or mixing tank.
  2. With the agitator running, add Elatus A to the tank.
  3. Allow the Elatus A to completely disperse into the mix water. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water and Elatus B to the spray tank.
  4. Spray the mixture with the agitator running.

Use Restrictions

  • Apply once in-furrow. If an application of Elatus is made, DO NOT apply more than one application of Aprovia Top fungicide in subsequent foliar applications.
