Use & Mixing

The instructions for use and mixing described below are from the Environmental Protection Agency approved Federal Label. Please click on 'Labels / MSDS' in the left hand navigation for special or state label instructions. Always read and follow label instructions.

Gem 500 SC Fungicide

Instructions
GEM 500 SC Fungicide Alone: Add approximately 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. With the agitator running, add the Gem 500 SC Fungicide to the tank. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Begin application of the solution after the Gem 500 SC Fungicide has completely and uniformly dispersed into the mix water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.
Reentry PPE
PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil, or water is:- Coveralls- Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.- Shoes plus socks
PPE
Applicators and other handlers must wear:- Long-sleeved shirt and long pants- Chemical resistant gloves made of any waterproof material.- Shoes plus socks
Tankmix
MIXING PROCEDURESPrepare no more spray mixture than is needed for the immediate operation. Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using this product. Vigorous agitation is necessary for proper dispersal of the product. Maintain maximum agitation throughout the spraying operation. Do not let the spray mixture stand overnight in the spray tank. Flush the spray equipment thoroughly following each use and apply the rinsate to a previously treated area.GEM 500 SC Fungicide + Tank Mix Partners: Add approximately 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. Start the agitator running before adding any tank-mix partners. In general, tank-mix partners should be added in this order: products packaged in watersoluble packaging (Note: When using Gem 500 SC Fungicide in tank mixtures, all products in water-soluble packaging should be added to the tank before any other tank mix partner, including Gem 500 SC Fungicide. Allow the water-soluble packaging to completely dissolve and the product(s) to completely disperse before adding any other tank-mix partner to the tank.), wettable powders, wettable granules (dry flowables), liquid flowables such as Gem 500 SC Fungicide, liquids, and emulsifiable concentrates. Always allow each tank-mix partner to become fully and uniformly dispersed before adding the next product. Provide - sufficient agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.If using Gem 500 SC Fungicide in a tank mixture, observe all directions for use, crop/sites, use rates, dilution ratios, precautions, and limitations, which appear on the tank-mix product label. Do not exceed labeled rates and observe the most restrictive of the labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixtures. This product must not be mixed with any product, which prohibits such mixing. Tank mixtures or other applications of products referenced on this label are permitted only in those states in which the referenced products are registered.Gem is compatible with most insecticide, fungicide, and foliar nutrient products. However, the physical compatibility of Gem 500 SC Fungicide with tank-mix partners should be tested before use. To determine the physical compatibility of Gem 500 SC Fungicide with other products, use a jar test, as described below.Using a quart jar, add the proportionate amounts of the products to 1 qt. of 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.The crop safety of all potential tank mixes including additives and other pesticides on all crops has not been tested. Before applying any tank mixture not specifically listed on this label, the safety to the target crop must be confirmed. To test for crop safety, apply GEM 500 SC Fungicide to the target crop in a small area and in accordance with label instructions for the target crop.

Gem Fungicide

Instructions
GEM(TM) Alone: Add 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. With the agitator running, add the Gem to the tank. Continue agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Begin application of the solution after the Gem has completely and uniformly dispersed into the mix water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied.
Reentry PPE
PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil, or water is: - Coveralls - Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material. - Shoes plus socks
PPE
Applicators and other handlers must wear: - Long-sleeved shirt and long pants - Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material. - Shoes plus socks Follow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions exist for washables, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry.
Tankmix
GEM(TM) + Tank Mix Partners: Add 1/2 of the required amount of water to the mix tank. Start the agitator running before adding any tank mix partners. In general, tank mix partners should be added in this order: products packaged in water-soluble packaging*, wettable powders, wettable granules (dry flowables) such as Gem, liquid flowables, liquids, and emulsifiable concentrates. Always allow each tank mix partner to become fully and uniformly dispersed before adding the next product. Provide sufficient agitation while adding the remainder of the water. Maintain agitation until all of the mixture has been applied. * Note: When using Gem in tank mixtures, all products in water-soluble packaging should be added to the tank before any other tank mix partner, including Gem. Allow the water-soluble packaging to completely dissolve and the product(s) to completely disperse before adding any other tank mix partner to the tank. If using Gem in a tank mixture, observe all directions for use, crop/sites, use rates, dilution ratios, precautions, and limitations which appear on the tank mix product label. No label dosage rate should be exceeded, and the most restrictive label precautions and limitations should be followed. This product must not be mixed with any product which prohibits such mixing. Tank mixtures or other applications of products referenced on this label are permitted only in those states in which the referenced products are registered. Gem is compatible with most insecticide, fungicide, and foliar nutrient products. However, the physical compatibility of Gem with tank mix partners should be tested before use. To determine the physical compatibility of Gem with other products, use a jar test, as described below. Using a quart jar, add the proportionate amounts of the products to 1 qt. of water.

The crop safety of all potential tank mixes including additives and other pesticides on all crops has not been tested. Before applying any tank mixture not specifically recommended on this label, the safety to the target crop should be confirmed. To test for crop safety, apply GEM to the target crop in a small area and in accordance with label instructions for the target crop.
