    Default Question about Dacotech W 75

    I spent half a day searching for fungicides in our area and this is the only one I have found. It came in small packets in water soluble powder form. Inert ingredient is chlorothalonil.My problem is, there's nothing on the packet about mixture measurement. If I have to mix it with water, how much powder I use per gallon? I intend to use this fungicide for treating a den who is a candidate for the sphag and bag. Would it be better if I just dust the den with the powder instead of mixing it with water? Please help. I don't want to lose the den because it was given to me as a gift and its hard to find variety.

    I appreciate any advice on how to use the fungicide and some tips on the sphag and bag method, this is my first time to do this.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tanya

    I've never heard of that one, Tanya. Searching on Google only brings up an article saying that, basically, it works. No mixing instructions, though. I wonder if it's similar to Daconil, given that the first parts of the words are the same? You might try a test with it on a plant that wasn't expensive by mixing up one tablespoon of the powder to 1 gallon of water and seeing how it does.

    As far as the sphag and bag method goes, do a search on here for "sphag and bag." There have been several threads posted on how to go about it.

    I did a search about Daconil and yes, I think its the same as Dacotech. They both have the same ingredients, chlorothalonil. The Den is now in the bag with the sphag. Thanks
