General Instructions

General Information

KUMULUS DF is a wettable sulphur formulation designed for maximum fungicidal effect and ease of handling. Sulphur is present in a range of fine particle sizes that provide good plant coverage, rapid action and persistence. The micro-granular formulation flows readily without forming dust and dissolves rapidly in water to form an easily maintained suspension.

KUMULUS DF is a preventative fungicide, which is also active against some mite species, notably Erinose mite on grapevines.

It is an offence to use this product on animals.

Direction for Use

The rates suggested are for high volume spraying to run-off. For concentrate spraying adjust dilution rates accordingly.


KUMULUS DF is compatible with most insecticides, fungicides and foliar fertilisers.

Do NOT use in mixtures with captan or maldison.

KUMULUS DF is NOT compatible with spraying oils or formulations containing mineral oils. Do NOT apply within 3 weeks of an oil spray.


In spray tanks with modern venturi and mechanical agitation systems, ? fill the tank with water then add the required amount of KUMULUS DF directly into the spray tank with agitators running. In spray tanks with less effective bypass agitation, KUMULUS DF should be pre-mixed with water in a bucket before adding to the partly filled spray tank. When used in mixtures pre-dilute the additive product prior to its addition to the spray tank. With agitators running, first add KUMULUS DF then the additive product. Use immediately.


Prevent further spillage and product from entering waterways. Wear overalls, gloves, footwear, goggles and dust mask. Sweep and shovel up spill and place in sealable container labelled for disposal. Avoid dust formation. Wash affected area with water and detergent. Absorb and collect washings and place in the same sealable container as the spilled material. Dispose of the waste safely in suitable landfill.

Personal Protection

When mixing and preparing spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist, a washable hat, suitable gloves, and goggles or a face shield.
