David,
 You are exactly right about the phytotoxicity problems.  What's missing is
a previous discussion with our entomologist on this very subject, which I am
adding to the blog sometime today.  The discussion was :

1. We need to verify the the Damoil in inventory is safe for application at
a rate of 4-5 gallons per acre at pre-pink.
2. With any oil application we will be applying no captan for ~two-three
weeks pre-bloom. I would prefer to not use the high rate of the EBDC's
(Polyram, Dithane, Manzate, etc.) as that precludes post-bloom use. With the
lower rate (3 lbs/acre) we will need to tank-mix Vanguard(cool weather), or
Nova (50z/acre) or Flint or Sovran.

I see where I should have included it earlier to avoid confusion on the
phytotoxicity issue.  Thanks for the heads up!  That's why I made the post
at NAFEX.  I knew that any spray program can be up for discussion and i was
hoping for discussion such as ours here.

Thanks again!
