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".

Watchung Valley Golf Club: First Assistant Superintendent
Watchung Valley Golf Course is located in the beautiful and scenic town of Watchung, New Jersey. Many historical landmarks are located nearby including Washington Rock. New York City is easily accessible within an hour via car or rail. Many nearby towns offer rail service to Manhattan in under an hour. Watchung Valley Golf Club has a long and storied history, which can be traced through a change in location and several name changes. The golf course that is in place today was originally designed and routed by famous golf course architect Seth Raynor. The Club has recently completed an entire course restoration which includes the construction of new bunkers, several new putting surfaces, as well as lengthening and rerouting of a few holes.
