I think I would take the bottle back to the store and ask for a one with directions. The instructions on the bottle are pretty extensive.

The website is www.ortho.com

Another item that might be helpful to you is the HELP!!! Tomato Problem Solver 2 thread on this forum.

Best wishes in growing your tomatoes.

Are you sure there are no directions??? The directions on these products is typically contained in a fold out booklet of sorts which is stuck onto the container with a clear removeable plastic film. Pick at what looks like the back label a bit and see if that isn't your instruction booklet.

Container given to me by freind. No directions on this bottle. They seem to be torn off. Just need directions for use with tomatoe plants...thats all.

There are different formulations --does the bottle tell you the strength? Why not call Ortho--1-888-270-3714 and get the correct information? Plus I would ask what is the shelf-life of Daconil as a bottle with no label may have been sitting around for a while.

The simplest thing is to pour some of the liquid into a hose-end sprayer and set the dial to 4oz. You may choose to very slightly dilute the liquid first with a short squirt of water from the hose. Then spray.

The labels and instructions are available on line. Just be sure you have Garden Disease Control (milky white) and not the Garden insect/disease control (Orthenex - which isn't for tomatoes). Farkee's right, you should find out how old it is too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Garden Disease Control Instructions (Daconil)
