Does anyone know if contact fungicides and systemic fungicides can be mixed together for spraying or must one spray them at different times?

I rotate them,but I assume you could spray them together.

Thanks, Fred. It would be so much easier to spray once instead of twice.

Hey Ann,

Yes you can mix them together, that's what I do since the contact fungicide can be used everytime without rotation. I used to rotate the systemic and the contact but after reading what others do on other message boards and other hybridizers I just mix them.

Thanks so very much, Michele. I didn't get your response until after I had already sprayed with just the contact fungicide. I will definitely remember this in the future. Do you use a tank sprayer or a hose-end sprayer?

Ann, we mix the two together, and if it is the ones from Lowes or Home
Depot, we doubled the strength as Michele once suggested to me for the
initial spraying. Now, we are mixing it according to the directions.
Seems to be working.

Ann I use a 15 gallon tank sprayer since we have sooooo many daylilies to spray and they are soooo spread out. Plus I use the Daconil Ultrex which is in granual form so I have to mix it in the tank with the liquid in the water. If I were using 2 liquids (such as the liquid Daconil) and the same amount was used for both (such as 1 tsp per gallon or whatever) I would use a hose end sprayer that's made for liquids. It is so much faster than pulling the 15 gallon sprayer around in the cart. However, I think it might end up using more product using the hose end sprayer than the tank sprayer, but I could be wrong. I also mix in my fertilizer and insecticides and anything else I may need to use all in the tank so I only have to spray once instead of 3 or 4 times with different products because I usually have to fill up the tank 3-4 times to spray all the daylilies.
