Topaz fungicide application

The active substance of topaz is highly effective, first of all, against the pathogens of powdery mildew, especially in primary lesions. Topaz is also widely used to treat fruit rot, purple spot, netted spot, gray rot, rust, scab, septoria, cercosporellosis, oidium.

The prepared solution is carefully sprayed on the plants in dry, calm weather.

Topaz on grapes and stone fruits (cherries, peaches, apple trees) is used for the first time before flowering, the second time after flowering. Only 3-4 treatments are allowed.

On vegetables and indoor flowers, Topaz is used at the first signs of the disease.

Topaz on berries is used for the first time at the time of bud formation, the second time after picking the berries. Only 2 treatments are allowed.

The combination of Topaz and Cuproxat is especially successful. It should be borne in mind that there is a possibility of resistance to a fungicide, therefore, in gardens where infections are most common (for example, when unreliable neighbors do not want to treat trees from scab), it is better to alternate Topaz with fungicides from other chemical groups.

Attention, fake! Due to the popularity of the fungicide Topaz, there are many counterfeit products on the market. The marketing managers of Syngenta LLC have repeatedly published an official conclusion on the detection of a forgery.

Consumption rates

2 ml of Topaz preparation are calculated on average for 10 liters for various diseases and only against rust the norm is 4 ml per 10 liters of water.

For use on indoor flowers, Topaz fungicide is best diluted in a small amount of water. The entire volume of the ampoule must be drawn into a 2 ml syringe, and then the required amount is dispensed, for example, 1 ml per 5 liters of water. Store the drug remaining in the syringe with a closed cap at room temperature, in the dark and out of the reach of children.

It is possible to increase the concentration by no more than 1.5-2 times, i.e. 3-4 ml of Topaz per 10 liters of water. At the same time, plants do not feel oppressed. If leaf lethargy manifests itself, this may be a reaction to a violation in care, for example, to waterlogging of the soil.

Working fluid consumption rates: 2 liters for a small tree, up to 5 liters for a larger tree, 1.5-2 liters for a bush (currants, gooseberries), vegetables - up to 5 liters per hundred square meters.

Toxicity of Topaz

Topaz is moderately toxic to bees and birds. Toxic to some fish and aquatic organisms. Penconazole accumulates in the soil, at the beginning of application the disintegration period is 14 days, with frequent use up to 21 days. Therefore, it is not recommended to carry out Topaz treatments on one garden plot for more than 3 years (Podgornaya M.E. 'Dynamics of decomposition of topaz in garden agrocenoses.' Journal of Plant Protection and Quarantine, No. 12, 2003)
