Resistance Warning:

GROUP 1B INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management of 4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500

INSECTICIDE is a Group 1B insecticide. Some naturally occurring biotypes resistant to

4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500 INSECTICIDE and other Group 1B insecticides may

exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals

can eventually dominate the insect population if 4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500

INSECTICIDE or other Group 1B insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness

of 4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500 INSECTICIDE on resistant individuals could be

significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to

use, 4 Farmers Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the

failure of 4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500 INSECTICIDE to control resistant insects.

4FARMERS CHLORPYRIFOS 500 INSECTICIDE may be subject to specific resistance

management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier or 4 Farmers

Australia Pty Ltd representative.

Precautions:

PRECAUTIONS

NOT for use in or around the home, garden, residential or publicly accessible spaces.

Re-entry periods: Field crops, tree crops and vines: Do not allow entry into treated crops

until spray deposits have dried. If prior entry is required, limit duration of entry and wear

cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical

resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Cotton chippers: Do not allow entry into treated areas until spray deposits have dried. After

this time wear shoes, or boots, socks, long trousers, long sleeve shirt, gloves and hat.

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Dangerous to bees. DO NOT spray any plants in flower while bees are actively foraging.

DO NOT feed grass clippings from treated area to poultry and animals.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate food, feed or domestic water supplies.

HIGHLY TOXIC TO BIRDS AND REPTILES. VERY HIGHLY TOXIC TO FISH AND

AQUATIC INVERTEBRATES.

DO NOT re-apply to the same crop within 7 days (unless specifically recommended in the

directions for use).

Spray drift may occur under adverse meteorological conditions or from certain spray

equipment. DO NOT allow spray to drift onto sensitive areas including, but not limited to,

natural streams, rivers or waterways and human dwellings. A spray drift management

strategy such as those in the “Best Management Practices Manual for Cotton Growers” or

the “Pilots and Operators Manual” should be applied.

Option for minimising drift to sensitive areas including not spraying within a certain distance

of sensitive areas when the wind is blowing towards them (see table for guidance) or

ensuring that drifting spray will be intercepted by a catching surface such as a row of

shelter trees, an unsprayed row of orchard trees, or hail netting.

Situation Recommended buffer distance (m)

. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation:

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

Seek medical attention if breathing problems develop.

Skin Contact:

In case of skin contact, immediately remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas with water and

soap. Seek medical attention if symptoms occur.

Eye Contact:

In case of eye contact, rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and

easy to do. Continue rinsing. Seek medical attention.

Ingestion:

If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent

aspiration. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek immediate medical attention. If

swallowed, activated charcoal may be advised. Give atropine if instructed.

Information for Doctor:

Vomiting may cause pulmonary aspiration. The stomach should be emptied as soon as possible by careful

gastric lavage (using a cuffed endotracheal tube already in place). Artificial respiration should be started at the

first sign of respiratory failure. Cautious administration of fluids is advised, as well as general supportive and

symptomatic pharmacological treatment and absolute rest. As early as possible, administer 2 mg of atropine

sulfate i.v. and 1000-2000 mg of pralidoxime chloride or 250 mg of obidoxime chloride (adult dose) i.v. to

patients suffering from severe respiratory difficulties, convulsions, and unconsciousness. Repeated doses of 2

mg of atropine sulfate should be given, as required, based on the respiration, blood pressure, pulse

frequency, salivation, and convulsion conditions. The dose and the frequency of atropine varies with each

patient, but the patient should remain fully atropinised (signs include dilated pupils, dry mouth, skin flushing).

Diazepam should be given in all but the mildest cases in doses of 10 mg, s.c. or i.v., which may be repeated

as required. For children, the doses are 0.04-0.08 mg of atropine/kg body weight, 250 mg of pralidoxime

chloride per child, or 4-8 mg of obidoxime chloride/kg body weight. Morphine, barbiturates, phenothiazine

derivatives, tranquillizers, and all kinds of central stimulants are contraindicated.
