GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:
MIXING: Mix the required quantify of product with a small
amount of water to form a slurry Pour this slurry into the party

FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING:
Carbendazim is a Group A Fungicide and a member of the
benzimidazole group of fungicides. For fungicide resistance
management, 4Farmers Carbendazim 500 Fungicide is a
Group A fungicide.
Some naturally occurring individual fungi resistant to 4Farmers
Carbendazim 500 Fungicide and other Group A fungicides
may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal
population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate
the fungi population if these fungicides are used repeatedly.
These resistant fungi will not be controlled by 4Farmers
Carbendazim 500 Fungicide and other Group A fungicides,
thus resulting in efficacy and possible yield loss.
Since the occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect
prior to use, 4Farmers Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any
losses that may result from the failure of 4Farmers
Carbendazim 500 Fungicide to control resistant fungi.
