8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A fast acting short residual contact aphicide that will move through the leaf to kill aphids on the other side. In warm conditions it has fumigant properties also. Very selective and doesn't kill the natural enemies of aphids such as ladybirds and lacewings. Has action on some fly species but low toxicity to bees.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Areas where bees are foraging should not be sprayed.
Thorough spray coverage is essential especially when temperatures are below 15C.
Compatible with most other pesticides. Use higher rates in cool weather (<20C) or when light intensities are low.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Use a non ionic wetting agent for hard to wet crops such as canola and brassicas.
Add 1% spray oil if relative humidity is low when sprayin cereals and lupins.
For areial applications add 10% spray oil if relative humidity is low when spraying cereals and lupins.

11. EQUIPMENT:

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Ground sprayers: 20-100 L water/ha (20L minimum for cereals and lupins; 100L minimum for cotton).
Aerial: 20-50 L water/ha (4-15 L/ha for cereals and lupins; 30-50 L/ha for cotton).

14. WEATHER:

If temperature is less than 15 degrees C then thorough coverage is essential for good control. At higher temperatures it will act as a fumigant.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

2 hours

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

A contact, ingested and occasionally inhaled insecticide for aphids and some flies. Highly selective with little effect on the natural enemies of aphids such as ladybirds and lacewings. It is transmitted through the leaf to kill aphids on the other side but is not highly translocated through the plant so thorough coverage is still necessary. Acts as fumigant in warm conditions.
When sprayed in the evening after bees have stopped foraging for the day it has little deleterious effect on bee populations.
A group 1A, carbamate, non systemic, selective insecticide for aphids and some flies that acts on the insects nervous system as a reversible acetylcholine esterase inhibitor.
Has a quick knockdown action.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Least likely product to have Green Peach Aphid resistance but some populations are resistant.

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity - Moderate toxicity.
Acute oral LD50 - 147 mg/kg
Acute dermal LD50 - 600 mg/kg
Skin - Not irritating.
Eye - Mildly irritating
Main exposure routes - Handling concentrate. Air blast application.

Summary:
Details:
Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50 - > mg/kg (rabbit).

Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Not mutagenic or teratogenic (i.e. does not cause cancer or reproductive problems).
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Initial symptoms include headache, nausea, lack of appetite and lassitude during exposure or several hours later. Dizziness, vomiting, stomach pains, contracted pupils, blurred vision and sweating may occur with higher exposure levels.

24. FIRST AID:

Contact a doctor or poison information centre on 008 119 244.
Give atropine (0.6mg) tablets every quarter hour then every half hour until signs of flushed face, dilated pupils, dry mouth and fast pulse appear. Medical attention must be sought after taking atropine.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin.
If breathing has stopped apply resuscitation
Poisoning usually occurs through skin absorption. Effects are cumulative and dangerous levels may develop before symptoms become noticeable. If you are exposed to organophosphate for more than 30 hours per month then levels of acetylcholinesterase enzyme should be regularly checked. If levels drop below 60% of normal then work with organophosphates should stop until levels improve. This may take several weeks.
