8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A contact and ingested agricultural insecticide for caterpillar control in cotton, pulses, fruit, vegetables, herbs, trees and ornamentals. It acts on the insects nervous system.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Best results on brown eggs and newly hatched larvae. Ensure thorough coverage.
Best results when temperature is less than 24C and relative humidity is greater than 65%.
Soft on lacewings, ladybirds and bugs but may reduce parasitoid wasps, ants, beetles, spiders and tachinid flies. Dangerous to bees.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

None, wetting agent or spray oil depending on crop. Do not use spray oils on fruiting trees as damage to fruit may occur.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Ground (water): 50-250 L water/ha with hydraulic nozzles to produce a target VMD of 150-250 microns. 250 L water/ha preferred for vegetable and orchard applications.
Aerial (water): 30 L water/ha with hydraulic nozzles to produce a target droplet size range of 150-250 microns.
Under condition of high temperature and low humidity adjust spray volume and droplet size upwards.
Clean equipment by triple rinsing with water.

12. SPRAYER WASH OUT AND DECONTAMINATION:

Triple rinse with water plus wetting agent.

13. WATER OR CARRIER DATA:

Use clean water with a pH of 5-9.
Ground (water): 50-100 L water/ha. Target VMD of 150-250 microns. 250 L/ha or more is recommended for orchards, vineyards and trees.
Aerial (water): 30 L water/ha with target droplet size range of 150-250 microns.
Tracer II only - Aerial (ULV): 5 L oil/ha minimum.
Under condition of high temperature and low humidity adjust spray volume and droplet size upwards.

14. WEATHER:

Usually rainfast after the spray has completely dried eg 20-30 minutes.
Avoid high temperature strong winds, inversion conditions, imminent rain or any other conditions that may reduce the quality of spray coverage or result in drift from the area to be treated.
Ground or aerial application (water):
Do not spray when the temperature exceeds 28°C or when relative humidity is less than 40%. Best results are achieved when the temperature is below 25°C and the relative humidity is greater than 65%.
Aerial application (ULV):
Do not spray when the temperature exceeds 32°C or when the relative humidity is greater than 40%.

15. RAINFASTNESS:

30 mins

Bees - High toxicity. LD50 0.06 ug/bee. Dangerous to bees. Foraging bees not affected after spray has dried. Soft on lacewings, ladybirds, spiders and bugs but may reduce parasitoid wasps, ants, beetles and tachinid flies.
Toxic to oysters
Toxic to diatoms. EC50 0.1-0.2 mg/L.
Algae - slight toxicity. EC50 8 mg/L.
Earthworms - low toxicity. LC50 >1000mg/kg soil.
It has a half life in soil of 9-17 days. Broken down by sunlight and microbial action.
It has an EPA classification for soil mobility that ranges from
Ground water contamination is extremely unlikely. It is not susceptible to leaching.
Accumulation in milk and tissues - It does not accumulate in the body.
Potential for bioaccumulation is low.
LogPow <3.
BCF <100.
Soil and Groundwater: The breakdown of spinosad in soils is largely dependent on photolysis. The photolysis
half-life in soil is 8 - 9 days. It will degrade faster in soils with higher moisture content and higher temperature.
Half-life estimates for spinosad in soil under aerobic conditions are from 9 -17days. Spinosad is stable to heat
but will break down in ultraviolet light. No information was found for the other components.
Surface Water: Spinosad is stable to hydrolysis at acid and neutral pHs in the absence of UV light. At high pH
( = 9) the half-life in water is approximately 200 days. However in the presence of light, spinosad hydrolyses in
water rapidly (half-life < 1day). No information was found for the other components.
Vegetation: Spinosad is not taken up significantly by plants at the roots and on foliage. No information was
found for the other components.

29. COMPATIBILITY:
