Default Immunox Fungicide on Tomatoes?

Has anyone used this? It only lists Powdery Mildew as a tomato target of the product, but some people claim it is effective on other foliage diseases. The biggest advantage that I see is that it is effective for 10-14 days and "rainproof" after drying. That would be a blessing here. Active ingredient is Myclobutanil.

Are there other fungicides that are rainproof? Maybe Neem oil, although I'm leery of Neem since it can gunk up spray equipment.

The link above mentions it is toxic to bees and earthworms. It might not be much better than Daconil, anyway. You could try experimenting with various spreader/sticker products in your spray as well.

@Cole Robbie-
What do you use for a spreader sticker?

My farm store sells a cheap brand. I have not tested it extensively against washing away in the rain.
