EXPORT OF TREATED PRODUCE
Growers should note that suitable MRL's or import tolerances may not be established in all
markets for product treated with Barmac Carbendazim 500. If you are growing produce for
export, please check with Barmac (A division of Amgrow Pty Ltd) for the latest information
on MRL's and import tolerances BEFORE using Barmac Carbendazim 500.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. Barmac Carbendazim 500 is a liquid suspension to be mixed
with water for application as a spray. Add the required quantity of Barmac Carbendazim
500 to a partly filled spray tank and agitate. Complete filling while agitating. Ensure the
spray mixture is properly agitated before restarting after stoppage.
ADDITION OF WETTING AGENT:
The addition of a wetting agent e.g. Activator* Surfactant to spray mixture improves the
distribution of the spray on hard to wet plants.
Dilute spraying (Tree crops only)
Use a sprayer designed to apply high volumes of water up to the point of run-off and
matched to the crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even
coverage throughout the crop canopy. Apply sufficient water to cover the crop to the
point of run-off. Avoid excessive runoff. The required water volume may be determined
by applying different test volumes, using different settings on the sprayer, from industry
guidelines or expert advice. Add the amount of product specified in the Directions for Use
table for each 100 L of water. Spray to the point of run-off. The required dilute spray volume
will change, and the sprayer set up and operation may also need to be changed, as the
Concentrate spraying (Tree crops only)
Use a sprayer designed and set up for concentrate spraying (that is a sprayer which applies
water volumes less than those required to reach the point of run-off) and matched to the
crop being sprayed. Set up and operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout
the crop canopy using your chosen water volume. Determine an appropriate dilute spray
volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy. This is needed to calculate the
concentrate mixing rate. The mixing rate for concentrate spraying can be calculated in the
following way: EXAMPLE ONLY
1. Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha
2. Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha
3. The concentration factor in this example is: 3X (i.e. 1500 L + 500 L = 3)
4. If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 10, that is
30 mL/100 L of concentrate spray. The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L
of water, the sprayer set up and operation may need to be changed as the crop grows. For
further information on concentrate spraying, users are advised to consult relevant industry
guidelines, undertake appropriate competency training and follow industry Best Practices.
FUNGICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING
GROUP 1 FUNGICIDE
Barmac Carbendazim 500 SC Fungicide is a member of the benzimidazole group of
fungicides. For fungicide resistance management, the product is a Group 1 fungicide.
Some naturally occurring fungal populations resistant to the product and other Group
1 fungicides may exist through normal genetic variability in any fungal population. The
resistant individuals can eventually dominate the fungi population if these fungicides are
used repeatedly. The resistant fungi will not be controlled by the product and other Group
1 Fungicides, thus resulting in a reduction in efficacy and possible yield loss. Since the
occurrence of resistant fungi is difficult to detect prior to use, Amgrow Pty Ltd accepts no
liability for any losses that may result from the failure of the product to control fungi.
Keep away from foodstuffs.
DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray deposits have dried. When prior entry
is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and elbow-length PVC
gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.
PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET CROPS
DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment that may cause spray
to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.
PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK
Barmac Carbendazim 500 is of low toxicity to bees.
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT
Very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects. DO NOT contaminate wetlands or
watercourses with this product or used containers.
STORAGE & DISPOSAL
Store in a locked room or place away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs, seed and
fertilisers. Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT
store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple-rinse containers before disposal.
Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling,
replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point. If not
recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved waste
management facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available, bury the
empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up
for this purpose, clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with
relevant local, state or territory government regulations. Do not burn empty containers or
VERY DANGEROUS, particularly the concentrate. Poisonous if absorbed by skin contact or
inhaled or swallowed. May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO
