Later in the season, fixed copper products may be applied to help reduce disease spread. No more than 6 applications per season.

Swapped Stinger for Spur in all cases, because Spur has Asparagus on the label, and we want to limit the number of products with the same ingredient in the guide. For the Leafy Veg/Herbs section, and special note was added for the 24c label available in Michigan for using Stinger in Swiss Chard.
Stinger can be used on Swiss chard in Michigan only (MI 24c exp. 12/31/25): apply 4-8 fl. oz. per acre in one broadcast application per season.
