5. COST: $379.50 per L or kg.

6. CHEMICAL GROUP: 22A.

7. RELATED PESTICIDES:

Indoxacarb 300g/kg or 150g/L

8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

An agricultural and horticultural insecticide for the control of insects mainly from the Lepidoptera (caterpillar) family and weevils. It is relatively soft beneficial insects such as predatory beetles, trnavers ladybirds, ants and pirate bugs. It has little action on spiders and lacewings.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results usually come from cosecutive applications up to the maximum allowed before switching to another group.
Ensure thorough and even coverage.
Add directly to water in the tank and don't premix as a slurry.
Keep agitated. Air agitation is not recommended.
Use wettable granule formulations immediately, as it tends to settle and my be difficult to resuspend. Use EC formulations within 72 hours of mixing.
Add a non-ionic wetting agent but don't use wetting agent when mixing with liquid feriliser. Agral or Citowet preferred as BS1000 or Activator 90 may cause damage to vegetable and fruit crops.
Do not apply within 20 m upwind of water bodies.
Do not use on glashouse, greenhouse, hydroponic or container grown fruit and vegetables.
Avoid drift onto grazing land.
For export crops, check with exporter that MRLs are in place for the country of destination.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None recommended.

11. EQUIPMENT:

High volume and low volume sprayers, boom sprays and hand leads. Ensure thorough and even coverage. Ensure at least 60 droplets per square centimetre.
Use droplets with a VMD of 150-200 micron to help reduce drift.
275 kPa (40psi) is the minimum recommended pressure for flat fan nozzles on the label. Pressures above 200 kPa (30 psi) are adequate.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Clean Up:
Clean soon after spraying to reduce the risk of forming dried deposits that may be difficult to remove.
Remove filters and clean separately. Rinse with soapy water (eg 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Rinse with water.

Decontamination:
Remove filters and clean then soak in 500 mL household ammonia in 10 L water for 30 minutes.
Rinse sprayer with soapy water (eg 500 mL or g of Drive, Dynamo, Omo or Surf per 100 L water) or water plus 0.25% wetting agent and run through boom. Fill with 1% solution of ammonia and allow to stand for several hours. Triple rinse with water. Or use a commercial spray tank and equipment cleaner.
Rinse nozzles and filters in water and replace.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Use clean water.
100 - 1500 L/ha for ground sprays.
30 L/ha for aerial application.
If using low carrier volumes select nozzles to provide at least 50 droplets per square centimeter.

14. WEATHER:

Apply in fine weather at least 2 hours before rain.
Don't apply if there is heavy dew on the crop.
Avoid applications during inversion conditions or when winds are less than 2 kph or greater than 25 kph.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

2 hours

16. SOIL:

No particular effect.

17. PLANT HEALTH and OTHER EFFECTS:

Some adjuvants such as BS1000 and Activator 90 may cause damage on some fruit and vegetable crops.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

An oxadiazine insecticide. It is a sodium channel antagonist.
Acts primarily as a larvacide.
It acts mainly on larvae by ingestion of treated foliage though there is some absrption through the insect cuticle.
Larvae cease feed soon after ingesting indoxocarb and die 3-5 days later.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.
It is expected to control insects resistant to other groups of insecticdes and no cross resitance has been reported.
