Question regarding Daconil on basil

Posted by loudsiam2 (My Page) on

Yesterday, I sprayed my tomato plants with Daconil/Ortho Max Garden Disease control, and today it occurred to me that I also sprayed my basil plants that are planted in the same raised bed. Does anyone know if I can still harvest from these plants? There is no mention of herbs on the product label.

There's always an 800 number on the label of any pesticide. I would not hesitate for one second to call and talk to someone in person. Daconil can be very toxic when not used properly.

Let us know what you find out. It would be helpful for us all to know.

FYI: loudsiam2 reported that she did make that phone call. The manufacturer said that since basil was not listed on her label that it should not be consumed.

Thought I'd follow up with this in case anyone else was interested. Thanks to louds for the follow-up.
