New buffer zones for Mission, Topas and Jade fungicides in tender fruit

As a result of a PMRA review, the following table has been added to the labels of all propiconazole products, including Mission, Topas and Jade. The buffer zones specified in the table below are required between the point of direct application and the closest downwind edge of sensitive terrestrial habitats (such as grasslands, forested areas, shelter belts, woodlots, hedgerows, riparian areas and shrublands), and sensitive freshwater habitats (such as lakes, rivers, creeks, marshes, streams, reservoirs and wetlands).

Early growth stage is before full canopy development, late growth stage is after when there is more canopy to intercept sprays.

Crop Stage Buffer zones (metres) required for the protection of freshwater habitats of depths less than 1 m Buffer zones (metres) required for the protection of freshwater habitats of depths greater than 1 m Buffer zones (metres) required for the protection of terrestrial habitat
