Wow! Thanks so much for doing that. I'll be extremely interested in their response!

Please reach out to me when you get a reply.

No, Syngenta did not respond. I found that all Azoxystrobin sc labels state to mix only as much as you can use for one application - do not store the mixed product.
I did purchase the 16oz Azoxy 2SC from the ebay seller as he proved to my satisfaction that he had purchased a bulk quantity and that he couldn't use it all.
I'm doing some testing on application rates based on the label rate of .4oz mixed with 2 or 4 gallons of water, I'm calling the 2 gal. rate "full strength" and the 4 gal. mix is half strength.
For a 32oz spray bottle I added 3ml of the Azoxy 2SC and of course half strength only add 1.5ml.
I am testing both strengths currently in comparison with similarly sized vfts - treated vs non treated but this is the beginning of dormancy so not sure what will happen.
I do have bottles and pipettes that will work for mixing if someone wants a few ounces, but I want to confirm the application rates first. Feel free to check my math.

Definitely let me know how your experiment goes. So what, are you using the entirety of those spray bottles on your application?

Sure thing, should know something in a few weeks.

I mixed two 8oz test batches of the Azoxy 2SC, the first batch was half strength applied to one of two similarly sized Dragons Breath vft's for comparison. The second batch was full strength applied to one of two similarly sized pots of recently divided B52's and one of two similarly sized pots of recently divided SD Kronos vft's for comparison.

Since this is dormancy time, I'll be happy if the test plants just survive the Azoxy 2SC application any observed improvements I'll take as a win win.
