8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

An contact an ingested agricultural insecticide with activity on Lepidoptera insects primarily as a larvacide. It is formulated as a granule or liquid.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Ensure thorough coverage.
Do not apply to dew laden crops.
Maintain continuous agitation after mixing.
Add a non ionic wetting agent at 125 g active per 100 L mix.
Downwind buffer zones to waterways upto 600 m for aerial and 40-50 m for boom sprays apply.
Keep a written spray record.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Non ionic wetting agent recommended at 125 g active/100 L mix for brassicas.
For vegetables and soft plants high strength products (eg BS1000, Acitvator 90) may cause crop phytoxicity. Use low strength products (eg Agral 600).
Do not use wetting agents if mixing with liquid fertilisers.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Apply at least 60 droplets/cm2.
Medium spray quality (ASAE S572) recommended to avoid drift.
VMD 250-300 microns preferred to reduce drift.
Minimum spray pressure for flat fan nozzles is 275 kPa (40 psi).
Not recommended for ULV sprayers.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Triple rinse with water and detergent.
Clean filters andnozzles separately to remove deposits.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

More than 100 L/ha water for boom sprays.
More than 30 L/ha for aerial sprays.

14. WEATHER:

Irritates eyes.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - No hazards which require special first aid measures. Consult a physician if necessary.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary. If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically.Gastric lavage may
not be necessary due to the low toxicity of the compound. However, administration of activated charcoal and sodium sulphate is advisable with significant ingestions.
