READ THE LABEL!
"It has come to our attention that during a routine DEC inspection, a certified applicator's records turned up an application containing Civitas and Daconil Action fungicide. Certain chlorothalonil fungicides and fungicides containing chlorothalonil as a mix, have a label restriction specifically saying not to mix the product with "oil" or "horticultural oil". In this case the fungicide did have a restriction on mixing with "horticultural oil" and as a result the applicator was issued a citation for mixing the fungicide with mineral oil. It is advised that before mixing mineral oil with a chlorothalonil product that the label be checked for a "horticultural oil" or "oil" restriction." We have confirmed with DEC that they view "mineral oil" as "horticultural oil".
