500mL concentrated formulation
A liquid, sulphur-based fungicide which controls the most common surface-infecting fungal problems such as powdery mildew, black spot and rust. Defender actually defends the plants by covering them with a protective coating. This product is ideal for roses as it does not have the strong smell often associated with sulphur-based products.
Powdery mildew on roses, chrysanthemums, grapes, strawberries, currants, gooseberries, beans and dahlias. Concord grapes and other sulphur-shy varieties of plants may be sensitive to this product.
Black Spot on roses
Rust on currants, gooseberries, beans and ornamentals.
Apple Scab on apple.
Spray plants to thorough wetting. For most applications, spray every 1-2 weeks after first signs of disease.
Adding water first, mix 1.5 ounces (3 tablespoons) of concentrate to 1 Quart of water (or 35mL to 1 Litre). The 16 oz. concentrate makes almost 4 gallons (15 litres) of spray.

Defender is a very good, enviro, product. I have used it for the past 4 years with good success. This year (2013 - Ontario) there seems to be greater fungal issues and I hoped for immediate success again. Issues with the unanimous plant under continued (5weeks now) attention.
