CHLORPYRIFOS-METHYL 500g/L + S-METHOPRENE 30g/L

8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A seed dressing for insect control in stored grain.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Seed dressing or surface spray for buildings and equipment.
Not recommended for malting Barley or Rice.
Ensure thorough and even application to grain or surfaces.
Ensure grain is free from infestations and less than 12% moisture and stored at less than 27 degrees C.
For use by Bulk Handling Authorities only in WA.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None recommended

11. EQUIPMENT:

Usually mixed with water and grain sprayed as it enters an auger or specialised grain spraying equipment used.
For surface sprays use a spray nozzles that applies a medium droplet size. (eg 8003 at 200 kPa)

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Use bleach.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Use clean water.
100 L water per tonne of grain or 500 L/ha for surface sprays.

Not required.
Do NOT use on Maize intended for export.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

None.

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Chlorpyrifos component controls insects.
Methoprene is an insect growth regulator. It will help reduce the build up of chlorpyrifos resistant populations.
Death and low fecundity.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.

Chlorpyrifos may cause headache, dizziness, incoordination, muscle twitching, tremors, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, sweating, pinpoint pulis, blurred vision, salivation, tearing, tighness in chest, excessive urination and convulsions.
Solvent may cause respiratory irritation and cnentral nervos system depression.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Give 1 atropine tablet every 5 minutes until dryness of mouth occurs. Do NOT induce vomitting. Get to a doctor quickly. Do NOT give any liquid.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. See a doctor as corneal damage can occur.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Give 1 atropine tablet every 5 minutes until dryness of mouth occurs. Get to a doctor quickly. If breathing is difficult admninister oxygen.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. Chlorpyrifos is a cholinesterase inhibitor.
