PLANT PROBLEM RATE HOW TO APPLY
Beans (including Broad Beans) Common blight   5mL Spray at first sign of disease or as a preventative spray. Repeat every 7-14 days as required.
Bacterial brown spot,     Spray within 21 days of emergence and repeat every 10-14 days depending on disease pressure.
Chocolate spot, rust   Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10-14 days as required.
Halo blight Spray every 10-14 days from when the plants are 15-30cm high, while conditions favour disease.
Brassicas (incl. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower) Downy mildew, black rot, peppery leaf spot, ring spot 5mL Begin spraying from the seedling stage until maturity. Spray every 10 – 14 days depending on weather conditions and disease pressure. Do not use on copper-sensitive varieties.

This product will reduce the spread of bacterial canker but will not control seed or soil borne infection.
Early blight / Target spot Begin spraying shortly after transplanting when plants are 15cm high and before symptoms appear. Apply every 7 – 10 days as required. Ensure that both upper and lower leaf surfaces are sprayed.
Late blight / Irish blight Spray at first sign of disease and repeat every 10 – 14 days.
