DIRECTIONS FOR USEIMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be read carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product.
Cauldron is a broad spectrum fungicide with systemic, protectant and curative properties for use in winter wheat, spring wheat, winter barley, spring barley, oats, rye and triticale.
1. Restrictions/Warnings For professional use only.
Avoid spray drift on to neighbouring crops.
Effects on baking and brewing have not been fully tested. Consult the grain merchant or processor before use.
This product may cause damage to broad-leaved plant species.
Wash equipment thoroughly after use.
Resistance Use Cauldron as part of an Integrated Crop Management (ICM) strategy incorporating other methods of control, including where appropriate other fungicides with a different mode of action.
Cauldron contains epoxiconazole, a DMI fungicide. Resistance to some DMI fungicides has been identified in Septoria leaf blotch (Mycosphaerella graminicola) which may seriously affect the performance of some products. For further advice on resistance management in DMIs contact your agronomist or specialist advisor, and visit the FRAG-UK website.
Cauldron contains boscalid which belongs to the SDHI (carboxamide) group of fungicides. To minimise the risk of resistance occurring, apply a maximum of two SDHI fungicide sprays per cereal crop.
3. Crops Cauldron is a broad spectrum fungicide with systemic, protectant and curative properties for use in winter wheat, spring wheat, winter barley, spring barley, oats, rye and triticale for disease control as summarised below.
Time of Application Apply Cauldron at the start of foliar or stem based disease attack. A maximum of two applications can be made before watery ripe stage (GS 71) in winter and spring wheat, rye and triticale, and before beginning of flowering (GS 61) in winter and spring barley and oats.
Rate of Application Apply 2.5 litres Cauldron in a minimum of 200 litres of water per hectare.
Qualified recommendation Cauldron may be applied at 2.5 litres per hectare in 100 litres of water per hectare although efficacy at this reduced volume has not been evaluated. Therefore application at 100 litres water per hectare is at user’s risk with regard to biological efficacy.
4. Following crops After treating a cereal crop with Cauldron, onions, oats, sugar beet, oilseed rape, cabbages, carrots, sunflowers, barley, lettuce, ryegrass, dwarf French beans, peas, potatoes, clover, wheat, field beans and maize may be sown as the following crop.
5. Mixing and Spraying For use by tractor mounted/trailed sprayer only.
Half fill the spray tank with clean water and start the agitation. SHAKE THE CONTAINER WELL before use and pour in the required amount of product. Rinse any empty containers thoroughly and add rinsings to the spray tank. Add the remainder of the water and continue agitation until spraying is completed.
On emptying the container, rinse container thoroughly by using an integrated pressure rinsing device or manually rinsing three times. Add washings to sprayer at time of filling and dispose of container safely.
The following does not form part of the product label under S.I. No.159 of 2012:
With many products there is a general risk of resistance developing to the active ingredients.
For this reason a change in activity cannot be ruled out. It is generally impossible to predict with certainty how resistance may develop because there are so many crop and use connected ways of influencing this. We therefore have to exclude liability for damage or loss attributable to any such resistance that may develop. To help minimise any loss in activity the BASF recommended rate should in all events be adhered to.
Numerous, particularly regional or regionally attributable, factors can influence the activity of the product. Examples include weather and soil conditions, crop plant varieties, crop rotation, treatment times, application amounts, admixture with other products, appearance of organisms resistant to active ingredients and spraying techniques. Under particular conditions a change in activity or damage to plants cannot be ruled out. The manufacturer or supplier is therefore unable to accept any liability in such circumstances. All goods supplied by us are of high grade and we believe them to be suitable, but as we cannot exercise control over their mixing or use or the weather conditions during and after application, which may affect the performance of the material, all conditions and warranties, statutory or otherwise, as to the quality or fitness for any purpose of our goods are excluded and no responsibility will be accepted by us for any damage or injury whatsoever arising from their storage, handling, application or use; but nothing should be deemed to exclude or restrict any liability upon us which cannot be excluded or restricted under the provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 or any similar applicable law.
