    If I use it I use bayleton..... When is the best time to apply? During the day like afternoon? Morning? Can the stuff sit out in the sun? Does it need to be watered in immediatly? Thanks......

    Bayleton is systemic, so it is taken in by the plants. Granular or liquid formulation should be watered in. The sooner the better if disease is present.

    If using a liquid Daconil type application, the best time to apply is early evening when it cools off. This will give it overnight to work, and this is when the fungi typically grow the fastest

    ok.. thanks.. I feel the overnight application would work the best... I don't use a liquid fungicide.. just the granular baytelon..... thanks again!
