8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A contact and ingested insecticide and repellent with some residual action. It is a synthetic pyrethroid.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Do not spray areas foraged by bees for 10 days before flowering to petal fall.
Thorough spray coverage is essential.
Addition of ethylated seed oils may improve control of some insects. Some formulations can be applied in either water or spray oils. Apply during the cooler parts of the day or at night for best results. Use a non ionic wetting agent for water based applications. The addition of 500 g of salt per 100 L of spray solution may improve the control of sucking insects.
Synthetic latex surfactants such as Bond improve control slightly under normal conditions and improve rainfastness and have maintained control levels with up to 50 mm rainfall after spraying.
Aim for a droplet size of 100-150 micron VMD. For oil based spraying use a minimum spray volume of 1.5 L/ha with a droplet size of 80-100 microns VMD.
Best results on caterpillar or larvae type species is usually around egg hatching time.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Use a non ionic wetting agent for almost all applications.
EC formulations may be bulked with spray oil for mister or aerial applications.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Use nozzles that produce 120-200 micron droplets for ground applciations. Hollow cone nozzles preferred.
Use equipment that produces 100-150 micron droplets for aerial applications. Rotary atomizer e.g. Micronair preferred for aerial applications.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

When applying in water use 50-100 L/ha for booms and 20-35 L/ha for aerial spraying.
50-200 L water/ha for ground applications.
20 L water/ha minimum and 30-35 L/ha for dense crops for aerial applications.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

It is a contact and ingested broad-spectrum insecticide with repellent and anti feeding action. Some insects will starve rather than eat treated plants. Non-systemic. Stable in ultraviolet light which aids it persistence on foliage.
Has a very quick knockdown action (within minutes of application). In oats and barley it provides about 6 weeks protection from re infestation by aphids in WA.
