Google daconil and it will show the active ingredient which is something like chloro.......

The product is avail under many brand names, for instance mine is Ortho Disease be gone or something to that effect. Use according to directions there are different strengths for deciduous and conifers.

Best

Be on the watch for phomopsis in Junipers, use Banner or one of the clones to control.

To expand the question:

I've read from you guys that it's good to rotate different types of fungicide. Is a good second fungicide a copper based fungicide? I think I read that Ryan Neil suggests manzoceb and don't remember anyone else suggesting this product.

Thank you.

John,  is 14.3 % Propiconazole  just a better all around fungicide for phomopsis/blight?

Mancozab is a fine product, some other carbamyls may be more efficacious.

Thanks John, interesting read.  Only wish they had more common names of fungicides listed.
