Fast results on dollar spot
By Jon on August 23, 2011
For the last 2 or 3 years, here in southern MI, we have had unusually cool and wet spring weather...perfect conditions for dollar spot fungus outbreak. Using 8 oz. of docket mixed with 24 oz. water, I treat approx. 7500 sq.ft. using a hose end sprayer set to deliver 3 oz. of mix per gal. of spray for a curative application. I follow up 7 to 10 days later with a preventative application using the same ratio of docket and water with the sprayer set to deliver 1 1/2 oz. per gal. to cover 15000 sq. ft. The follow up application seems to be key.

Best buy for Chloro - I use as curative for Brown Patch when I don't catch it soon enough with the preventive. Good quantity for small users wanting a good price on concentrate. Service from DMOPC is stellar.

Delivery of the Daconil was a week, as promised. When I didn't know what dosage to use (because the professional dosages were TOO large), the mfg. co. answered my question beautifully. Good product and advice!

QI have Rhizosphaera needlecast on my spruce trees. How much Docket DF do I need per gal of water?
I am told to use Docket DF, I have a 26 gallon sprayer.
AYou will need to use 5 lbs of Docket DF per 100 gallons of water (1.25 lbs of Docket DF per 25 gallons of water) for Rhizosphaera Needlecast on spruce trees.
September 23, 2011George from Woodbridge, Va asked:

Have Brown Patch and dollar spot in hot humid northern Virginia

March 25, 2011Tongju asked:
QCould I use a small spray tank to apply Docket DF?
Some of landscape trees (Cypress) in my backyard are dying with canker (I guess). I'm trying to use this to prevent the disease from spreading to other Cypress trees (I have 7 total). Could I use my small (2 gallon) plastic sprayer with this product? I am not quite sure that the plastic sprayer is strong enough to contact chlorothalonil.
AIt is perfectly fine to use a normal poly sprayer, 1 or 2 gallon size. It should have no problem handling this product. Of course you should measure accordingly to the amount of water you are using and then only mix what you plan on using and do not leave the product in the sprayer over night. Rinse out the sprayer well when you are done and you should be fine.
April 8, 2011Charles asked:
QI have spruce spider on my trees. What product do I use?
I have several hundred trees and I have a 26 gal. sprayer
AOur most popular product for spider mites is Talstar P. Talstar P is known to have a pretty good miticide effect for these plant infesting pests. When Talstar P is over used the mites are known to build up a resistance to the active ingredient. The other choices would be to use a horticultural oil or an insecticidal soap. Both of these products work best when they make direct contact with the pest and both products are known to cause discoloration to spruce trees. The pro to using one of these products is that spider mites cannot build up a resistance to them.
November 17, 2011Edwin from Maine asked:
QI have mold growing on plywood flooring in a new construction on the underside. Will this product work?
Can this product be added to a Disodium Octaborate (DOT) mixture?
ADocket DF is a fungicide not a moldicide and will not work for your needs. We do carry Boracare with Moldcare which is meant for use on wood. Boracare with Moldcare is the pest control industry's leading product in the fight against mold. It is the only EPA-registered product that will both kill and prevent mold on wood surfaces. Not only does Bora-care with Mold-care treat mold, but it also acts as a surface protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. In addition, wood treated with Boracare with Moldcare will render wood impervious to termites, powderpost beetles and other wood-destroying insects. You will need to use Mold Clean to get rid of the mold stains prior to using the Boracare with Moldcare.
February 5, 2012Jeff from Sullivan Wi asked:
QI have needle cast on my blue spruce, how much,how often and when do I apply Thanks should I
AThere are several different types of needlecast that can affect blue spruce trees. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office for help identifying the exact disease you are dealing with. You can also review the Docket DF product label for application instructions.

May 24, 2012Betty from Clarksville Tx asked:
QDo you apply Docket DF to wet or dry tomato leaves?
I need to know if I should apply Docket DF on my tomatoes when they are freshly watered and wet leaves or apply on dry leaves
ADocket DF is not labeled for use on tomatoes so we do not recommend it you use the product on tomatoes at all.
January 3, 2013Charles from United States asked:
QWhat is the best treatment for my Blue Spruce which has developed Rhizosphaera Needle Cast?
The bottom of the Spruce is thinning out due to browning dead needles and has moved up about a third of the tree.
AThe only product we carry that is labeled for Rhizosphaera Needle Cast is Docket DF. You will need to use 5 lbs of Docket DF per 100 gallons of water (1.25 lbs of Docket DF per 25 gallons of water) for Rhizosphaera Needlecast on spruce trees.
October 24, 2011Fred from Keswick Va asked:

April 24, 2012Morris from Austin Tx asked:
QWhat is the proper mix to control Nigrospora Stolon Rot on st augustine grass??
AAlthough many university gardening websites recommend Docket DF for Nigrospora Stolon Rot, Docket DF is not actually labeled for Nigrospora Stolon Rot so we do not have mixing instructions for this type of disease. You can contact the Docket DF manufacturer to see if they are able to offer further instructions. You can reach Syngenta by calling 866-796-4368.
September 2, 2012Tom from Chapel Hill, Nc 27516 asked:
