General Instructions

General Information

DELAN WG is a protectant fungicide that inhibits spore germination. It has good adhesion to plant surfaces and is relatively rainfast. It is compatible with IMC programmes involving T. pyri.

Direction for Use

The rates recommended are for high volume spraying to the point of run off. For concentrate spraying adjust dilution rate accordingly.


Ensure that spray equipment is properly calibrated. Complete spray coverage is essential for consistent disease control with any fungicide. Forward speeds should be sufficiently slow to ensure full spray coverage of the crop being treated. Do not over spray. For specified crops do not apply less than the label recommended minimum rate of DELAN WG.

Remove domestic animals from the operating area. Apply with well-maintained and accurately calibrated equipment. Do NOT spray over, or allow drift over, surface water. Do NOT allow spray drift outside the target area to occur. Clean out application equipment thoroughly after use. Do NOT contaminate water when disposing of equipment wash waters.


Half fill the spray tank with water then, with the agitators running, pour in the required quantity of DELAN WG and top up with water. Maintain agitation continuously.


DELAN WG is not compatible with chlorpyrifos EC, iprodione, prothiofos, vinclozolin, and alkaline materials such as lime, lime sulphur or Bordeaux mixture. Do NOT mix adjuvants (stickers, rainfasteners etc) with DELAN WG or apply within 48 hours (before or after) of a DELAN WG spray. Do NOT apply summer oils within 21 days (before or after) of a DELAN WG spray. DELAN WG may be applied in tank mixture with oil over the green tip period.
