A suspo-emulsion containing 125 g/l kresoxim-methyl (strobilurin fungicide) plus 125 g/l
epoxiconazole (triazole fungicide) plus 150 g/l fenpropimorph (morpholine fungicide) for
use in cereals.
Maximum application rate: 1.0 litre/ha (125 g + 125 g + 150 g a.s./ha)
Maximum Number of treatments: Two (250 g + 250 g + 300 g a.s./ha)
Asana is not classified as ‘Harmful to game, wild birds and animals’.
No risk management necessary to protect wild mammals and birds.
The three active substances in Asana are of low toxicity to mammals
and birds. The risk to wild mammals and birds feeding on treated
areas is low due to the limited amount of residues likely to be
No risk management necessary. Asana is of low risk to bees.
3. NON TARGET
No risk management necessary.
Asana poses a low risk to a range of arthropod species commonly
found in and around treated cereal fields, including ground beetles,
lacewings and aphid parasitoids.
4. AQUATIC LIFE
Asana is classified as “Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause
long term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.”
Asana is extremely toxic to algae and aquatic invertebrates e.g. water
flea, and highly toxic to fish. “Do not contaminate surface waters or
ditches with chemical or used container.”
Risk management is essential. Asana can be used safely providing
care is taken to prevent spray drift reaching surface waters. The
following risk management practices must be carried out in order to
ensure that there is adequate protection of aquatic species.
“DO NOT ALLOW DIRECT SPRAY from horizontal boom sprayers to
fall within 5 m of the top of the bank of a static or flowing water body,
unless a Local Environmental Risk Assessment for Pesticides
(LERAP) permits a narrower buffer zone, or within 1 m of the top of a
ditch which is dry at the time of application. Aim spray away from
