Default Daconil Shelf Life

While cleaning out my gardening storage area I found a couple,1 opened, containers of Daconil. Was wondering if there is a practical shelf of this and/or most other gardening products. It amazed me that I had accumulated so much and forgot that I had them on hand. Is it possible that being 73 contibutes to a memory deficiency?

I wrote Ortho to ask this question a few years ago and if I recall correctly, it begins to lose it's efficiency after 3 years.

I posted the letter here somewhere but I'll be danged if I can find it.

Edited to add: found it! See attached file.

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.

Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:

"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."

No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.

Not sure if it applies to this as well but Se7en losses some of its zip if it freezes. I have bought it at a box store and not realized it was from the year prior and stored in an unheated space. Then went to a different store bought the exact same thing and it worked great. So that might be something to look at as well.
