Among the many fungicides, Bayleton is in wide demand. The tool is prophylactic and curative. Bayleton is used as a fungicide to protect grain and garden crops from scab, rot, as well as various types of fungi. Gardeners use a product for processing fruit and berry plantations. The duration varies from two to four weeks, depending on the weather.
Bayleton is considered a systemic fungicide. The active ingredient is triadimefon. In 1 kg of the drug, the concentration is 250 g. The fungicide is produced in the form of a powder or emulsion. The concentration is 25% and 10%, respectively. Packaging is carried out in small doses, as well as 1, 5, 25 kg.
The dry powder is poorly soluble in pure water. The best solvent is considered a liquid of organic origin. In a 0.1% solution of hydrochloric acid, the powder does not dissolve for 24 hours.
Bayleton is able to penetrate deeply into plant cells, thereby enhancing the fight against diseases. Absorption occurs by all parts: foliage, root system, fruits, stems. The active substance is distributed with the sap of the plant, destroying pathogens.
Important! The active ingredient of the fungicide works even in gaseous form. Due to these properties, the drug is used to protect garden crops grown in the greenhouse against leaf pests.
Bayleton acts instantly immediately after spraying. First of all, the larvae of pests that eat green foliage die. The tool helps well to destroy aphids. However, the drug works effectively in conjunction with insecticides.
To understand how useful the Bayleton fungicide is, the following advantages of the drug will help:
- Lack of phytotoxicity in relation to the sprayed plants. Bayleton is safe when you adhere to the manufacturer's recommended dosages.
- The study did not reveal the addiction of pathogens to the active substance. Bayleton can be used multiple times.
- Excellent compatibility with many fungicides and insecticides. However, before use, the two preparations are mixed and tested for reaction. If there is the formation of bubbles, turbidity of the liquid or other reactions, then the funds are not compatible.
- The release forms are convenient for use. The grower can buy powder or emulsion, and in a suitable amount.
- Bayleton is considered harmless to living organisms when used correctly. There may be an apiary, a pond, poultry and animals nearby. According to the safety class, the fungicide is low-toxic for beneficial insects.
- The manufacturer does not indicate any specific restrictions on the use of the fungicide.
If the instructions for the Bayleton fungicide are followed, the drug will not harm humans and the environment.
Rules for the preparation of the solution and the use of the drug
Fungicides can be stored for a long time in their original packaging, but the working solution quickly expires. The powdery agent or emulsion is diluted at the place of work and immediately before starting.
First, a concentrated drug Bayleton weighing 1 g is dissolved in a small amount of water, not more than 1 liter. Mix the liquid thoroughly. After complete dissolution, add water, bringing the working solution to the volume recommended in the instructions. The sprayer cylinder is filled away from water sources, foodstuffs, and the habitat of pets. After several shaking of the container with the solution, start pumping with air.
Using Bayleton fungicide, the instructions for use state that two treatments are enough per season. The number of sprays depends on the type of crop being treated. If this is not prevention, take into account the contamination of the plant. Spray any crop during the growing season. For work, choose clear dry weather without wind.
Advice! The best time of day to spray your plantings with Bayleton fungicide is early morning or late evening. In the first case, there should be no dew on the plants.
In large farms, after spraying with the drug, it is allowed to carry out work with the participation of mechanized equipment at least three days later. You can work on the site with hand tools in seven days.
Dosage of the drug for different types of crops
All consumption rates for each specific crop are indicated by the manufacturer on the packaging of the fungicide. You should not deviate from them. A weak solution will not be beneficial, and an overabundance of the drug increases the risk of toxic damage to plants and the person himself.
The dosage for popular crops is as follows:
- Cereals. For these crops, the consumption of the concentrated preparation varies from 500 to 700 g per 1 ha. In terms of the working solution, the consumption is about 300 liters per hectare. The duration of the protective action is up to 20 days.
- Corn. To treat a plantation with an area of 1 hectare, it will take up to 500 g of concentrated matter The volume of the working solution ranges from 300 to 400 liters.
- Open-air cucumbers. The consumption rate of the concentrated preparation is from 60 to 120 g per 1 ha. The working solution for the processing of a plantation of a similar area will take from 400 to 600 liters. The protective effect of Bayleton fungicide lasts at least 20 days. For optimal protection of cucumbers against powdery mildew, plantings are sprayed up to four times per season.
- Cucumbers grown in heated and unheated greenhouses. Concentrate consumption for a plot of 1 hectare varies from 200 to 600 g. Translated into a working solution, it will take from 1000 to 2000 liters to process a similar area. The duration of the protective action is only 5 days.
- Tomatoes grown in heated and cold greenhouses. The consumption rate of the concentrated substance is from 1 to 2.5 kg per 1 hectare plot. A working solution for the same area needs from 1000 to 1500 liters. The protective action lasts about 10 days.
The consumption rates of Bayleton for other crops can be found in the fungicide instructions on the original packaging.
Other characteristics of the drug
With regard to other characteristics of Bayleton, it is worth dwelling on phytotoxicity. The fungicide does not adversely affect all sprayed crops, provided the dosage is observed. An accidental increase in the rate will cause phytotoxicity in vineyards as well as apple trees.
Bayleton's resistance was not revealed during the study. However, one should not deviate from the rules for using the fungicide, and also arbitrarily change the recommended dosages.
Bayleton is compatible with other pesticides. Before mixing, a preliminary check is carried out for each individual preparation.
Important! The shelf life of Bayleton concentrate in its original packaging is 4 years. The drug is stored at temperatures from +5 to + 25 ° C.
Safety rules when working with the drug
Bayleton belongs to chemicals of the third hazard class. Fungicide is allowed without restrictions to be used in sanitary zones where reservoirs, fish farms, rivers are located.
Safe use of Bayleton fungicide is stipulated in the following rules:
- The fungicide is harmless for beneficial insects. However, on the day of planting processing, it is necessary to limit the years of bees in the apiary to 20 hours. It is recommended to adhere to the border protection zone up to 3 km.
- The working fluid is prepared directly on the treated area. If this is done in a private yard, then refueling the sprayer and other preparatory work is carried out as far as possible from sources of drinking water, outbuildings with animals and living quarters.
- When working with a fungicide, it is unacceptable for the drug to enter the digestive system, eyes, or on open areas of the body. When spraying, do not inhale the water mist created by the sprayer. Optimally protect yourself with a respirator, goggles, gloves and protective clothing.
- After spraying with the fungicide, gloves are not removed from the hands. First, they are rinsed in water with baking soda added. A 5% solution completely neutralizes fungicide residues on gloves.
- In case of poisoning by Bayleton, a person is taken to fresh air. Be sure to remove all protective equipment, including overalls, and call a doctor.
- While working in wet clothing, Bayleton's solution will seep through the fabric onto the body. If visible wet spots are found, the body area is washed with soapy water. If the solution gets into the eyes, perform a long rinse under running water.
- If a solution or concentrate of a fungicide enters the digestive organs, an emetic effect must be immediately induced. A person is given 2 glasses of water to drink with the addition of activated carbon at the rate of 1 g / 1 kg of body weight. Seeing a doctor is mandatory.
Subject to all safety rules, Bayleton will not harm humans, the surrounding flora and fauna.
