Where can growers find the special 24 (c) label for using Bravo WeatherStik past shucksplit?
Growers need to take an extra step to go online to the farmassist.com website to obtain an indemnified label for using Bravo WeatherStik past shucksplit.
Many growers have not been able to find the special 24 (c) label for using Bravo WeatherStik past shucksplit; it is not currently available on the CDMS or Syngenta websites. In talking with the Syngenta representative, we at Michigan State University Extension found out that growers must go through the steps to obtain an Indemnified label – the regular Bravo WeatherStik label IS NOT ACCEPTED for this special use. The label is on farmassist.com and is now available. This Section 24c Indemnified label must be obtained by the grower – neither Syngenta nor resellers may provide this label. The directions for navigating the farmassist.com website are as follows:
- Go to the www.farmassist.com (simply click on the link provided here).
- If you are a first time user, register as a new user.
- Complete the registration information and click on the “I accept” button.
- Once into the site, look on the upper left side of the screen and select Products.
- Select Indemnified Labels.
- On this screen, select the state and product.
- Note: take care to select the exact product name.
- Click the submit button just below these windows.
- On the next screen, you should see the title of any indemnified labels that fit your description. Select the desired crop and click submit.
- You may now print the waiver.
- In order to view, print or download the indemnified label, you must read and “accept” the terms set forth in the “WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT.”
- Click “I accept” to continue.
- You will then receive a link to the label you have selected.
- Click the link to display, print or download the label.
In addition to obtaining this special label via the farmassist website, growers must also sign the MDA training affidavit. This process is straight forward, and the signed affidavit must be kept with the special label and the spray records.
Lastly, we remind growers that the 24c label is only for Bravo Weather Stik (EPA Reg. No. 50534-188-100); other Bravo formulations, Chloronil or generic chlorothalonil products must be used under their Section 3 labels, and are not covered by this Special Local Needs label. Also, the rules to use this product past the traditional shucksplit timing need to be followed (refer to “Tart cherries receive 24 (c) for use of Bravo Weather Stik (chlorothalonil) beyond shuck split”). We highly recommend growers check with their processor before using Bravo WeatherStik past shucksplit.
