Resistance Management

  • To limit the potential for development of disease resistance to these fungicide classes, do not make more than 2 applications of Luna Sensation or any Group 7 or Group 11 fungicide before rotating with a fungicide from a different Group
  • For multi-spray crops, the total number of sprays containing Luna Sensation or any Group 7 or Group 11 fungicide should not exceed half of the total number of fungicide applications in a season
  • Fungicide use should be based on an integrated disease management program that includes scouting, historical information related to pesticide use and crop rotation and considers host plant resistance, impact of environmental conditions on disease development, disease thresholds, as well as cultural, biological and other chemical control practices
