About this Product

Broad-spectrum disease control for pome fruit and grape growers

An excellent fit as part of an Integrated Pest Management Program (IPM) for pome fruit and grape growers, Inspire Super® fungicide is a combination of two active ingredients that provide effective, reliable protection against a broad spectrum of diseases including scab and suppression of powdery mildew in pome fruit as well as control of powdery mildew and botrytis in grapes.

Product Benefits

  • Two modes of action for systemic and translaminar protection
  • Broad spectrum control of key pome fruit and grape diseases
  • Performs in both cool and warm weather conditions

Packaging

One case contains 4 x 3.78 L jugs

Uses

For use on:

  • Apples
  • Crab apples
  • Pears & Oriental Pears
  • Quince
  • Grapes

For management of:

In pome fruit:

  • Scab (venturia inaequalis, Venturia pirina)
  • Powdery mildew (Podosphaera leucotricha)*
  • Brooks fruit spot (Mycosphaerella pomi)
  • Cedar apple rust (Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae)
  • Flyspeck (Zygophiala jamacaicensis – formerly known as Schizothyrium pomi)
  • Quince rust (Gymnosporangium clavipes)
  • Sooty blotch (Gloeodes pomigena)

*Suppression

In grapes:

  • Foliar anthracnose (Elsinoe ampelina)
  • Alternaria rot (Alternaria alternatae)
  • Powdery mildew (Uncinula necator syn. Erysiphe necator)
  • Botrytis bunch rot (Botrytis cinerea)
  • Black rot (Guignardia bidwellii)

Application Information

Use Rates

In apples:

Scab: 560-836 mL/ha (227-338 mL/ac)

Protective spray schedule:

Apply every 7-10 days starting at ¼- ½ inch green tip or when environmental conditions become conducive for scab. Continue through petal fall until the threat of primary scab is passed.

Forecasting spray schedule:

Use a forecasting system beginning at green tip. Apply within 48 hours of the onset of an infection period; apply a second spray after 7 days. 

Brooks fruit spot, cedar apple rust, flyspeck, quince rust, sooty blotch: 836 mL/ha (338 mL/ac)

Begin applications preventively. Apply on a 7-10 day schedule through the second cover spray.

 Powdery mildew*: 836 mL/ha (338 mL/ac)

Begin applications at the tight cluster stage and continue on a 7-10 day schedule. *Suppression

In grapes:

Foliar anthracnose: 836-1161 mL/ha (338-470 mL/ac)
Alternaria rot: 836-1475 mL/ha (338-597 mL/ac)
Powdery mildew: 836 mL/ha (338 mL/ac)
Botrytis bunch rot: 1033-1475 mL/ha (418-597 mL/ac)
Black rot: 1475 mL/ha  (597 mL/ac)

Water Volume

For best results, sufficient water volume must be used to provide thorough coverage.  A minimum of 375 L/ha (37 gal/acre) for ground applications is recommended.  

Application Method

Ground

Application Information

To improve scab control Inspire Super must be tank-mixed with a protectant fungicide such as Allegro®.

When scab is present in the orchard, do not make more than 4 applications of Inspire Super or any other Group 3 or Group 9 fungicide.

In grapes:
For foliar anthracnose, Alternaria rot, Botrytis bunch rot and black rot, begin applications prior to disease onset when conditions are conducive for disease. Apply on a 15- to 21-day schedule. If disease pressure is high, use the shortest interval and, where applicable, the highest rate.

For powdery mildew, begin applications at bud break and apply on a 15- to 21-day interval.

Mixing Order

WALES Symbol: E

  1. Add ½-¾ of the required amount of water to the spray or mixing tank.
  2. With the agitator running, add the tank-mix partner(s) into the tank, if using. Add wettable powders and water dispersible granular products first, then liquid flowables, and emulsifiable concentrates last.
  3. Allow the material to completely dissolve and disperse into the mix water.  Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water and Inspire Super to the spray tank.
  4. Allow Inspire Super to completely disperse.
  5. Spray the mixture with the agitator running.
  6. Observe all directions for use, crops/sites, use rates, dilution ratios, precautions, and limitations which appear on the tank mix product label.
  7. Label dosage rate must not be exceeded, and the most restrictive label precautions and limitations must be followed.
  8. This product must not be mixed with any product which prohibits such mixing.

Use Restrictions

  • Do not make more than two consecutive applications of Inspire Super or other products from the same group of chemistry before alternating to another fungicide with a different mode of action.
  • Do not apply Inspire Super Fungicide within 14 days of harvest (14 day PHI).
  • Restricted Entry Interval (REI): 12 hours.

Rainfastness

Two hours. Avoid when rain is forecast.

Tank Mixes

To determine the physical compatibility of Inspire Super with tank-mix partners, use a jar test.  Using a jar, add proportionate amounts of the products and water. Add wettable powders and water dispersible granular products first, then liquid flowables, and emulsifiable concentrates last. After thoroughly mixing, let stand for at least 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be remixed readily, it is physically compatible. Once compatibility has been proven, use the same procedure for adding required ingredients to the spray tank.

Mode of Action

The powerful systemic activity of cyprodinil attacks disease pathogens in at least two sites, inhibiting both the penetration of fungal pathogens into plant tissues and the growth of mycelia. Inspire Super is a good cool weather option, for example in early spring. Under cool conditions the cyprodinil component of Inspire Super is taken up slowly but has long residual control. Under warm conditions, cyprodinil is taken up quickly into the plant, providing faster protection. The translaminar activity of difenoconazole protects against disease by inhibiting the growth of mycelia. Difenoconazole is absorbed rapidly by leaf tissue and moves quickly from one side of the leaf to the other, protecting both leaf surfaces and providing excellent rainfastness. Spraying early in the season is the best way to keep diseases at bay. Together, cyprodinil and difenoconazole interact to provide broad spectrum control in apples.
