IPM recommendations 

Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to sound resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Seed treatment use should be based on an IPM program that includes field sanitation, scouting, historical information related to pesticide use, and crop rotation. The IPM program should also consider cultural, biological, and other chemical control practices. Where possible, rotate or mix the use of Group 12 fungicides with different fungicide groups to which resistance has not developed.
