Resistance management Strategy:

Do not rely on products with a common mode of action for any extended period but where possible use in conjunction with alternate products from different chemical groups. Keystrepto must be used in a programme with alternative products recommended for the management of Psa. Prolonged use of keystrepto alone may lead to the development of resistant strains. Do not apply more than the number of sprays or use a rate greater or less than as specified on the label. Ensure thorough coverage. Shelf life - 3 years from date of manufacture
