Trade Advice:

LIVESTOCK DESTINED FOR EXPORT MARKETS

The label withholding period for grazing only applies to stock slaughtered for the domestic

market. Some export markets apply different standards. To meet these standards, ensure

that the Export Slaughter Interval or the Export Grazing Intervals is observed before stock

are sold or slaughtered.

EXPORT SLAUGHTER INTERVAL (ESI): 28 DAYS

Livestock that have been grazing on or fed treated crops and/or over-sprayed should be

placed on clean feed for 28 days (4 weeks) prior to export slaughter.

General Instructions:

This section contains file attachment.

Resistance Warning:

For insecticide resistance management Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide is a Group

22A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Conquest Stalwart

150 EC Insecticide and other Group 22A insecticides may exist through normal genetic

variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the

insect population if Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide or other Group 22A insecticides

are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide on

resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals

is difficult to detect prior to use, Conquest Crop Protection Pty Ltd accepts no liability for

any losses that may result from the failure of Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide to

control resistant insects.

Strategies to minimise the risk of insecticide resistance are available.

To help prevent the development of resistance to Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide

observe the following instructions:

Use Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide in accordance with the current Insecticide

Resistance Management (IRM) strategy for your region.

Cultivate all cotton fields as soon as possible after picking to destroy overwintering pupae

of Helicoverpa armigera.

For further information contact your local supplier, Conquest representative or local

agricultural department agronomist.

Precautions:

PRECAUTION

DO NOT use human flaggers/markers unless they are protected by engineering controls

such as vehicles with enclosed cabs.

RE-ENTRY PERIOD

DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until spray has dried. When prior entry is necessary,

wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrists, a washable hat and chemical resistant

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

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Dangerous to bees. DO NOT apply when bees are actively foraging. Avoid direct

application or drift of the spray mix onto beehives. After the spray has dried, bees can

safely forage flowering crops.

AVOID SPRAY DRIFT ONTO ADJOINING PROPERTIES OR STOCK AREAS.

Assess the treatment area before application to identify animal exposure risks. Avoid aerial

application where possible. Observe the buffer zones for aerial and ground application. If

unexpected conditions cause spray drift onto pasture or fodder crops that livestock may

potentially graze or may be cut for livestock feed seek advice from Conquest.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

Retain irrigation water and DO NOT allow the chemical to enter adjacent paddocks, crops

or water supplies.

PROTECTION OF NON-TARGET BENEFICIAL INSECTS

Beneficial insects contribute to control of secondary pest outbreaks. Conquest Stalwart 150

EC Insecticide applications are unlikely to affect spiders and lacewings. Applications MAY

temporarily reduce populations of predatory beetles, transverse ladybirds, ants and pirate

bugs, but populations quickly recover.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause

spray to drift onto nearby non-target plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures. Refer to the

Product Use section above and the cotton industry’s Best Management Practice Manual to

manage spray drift during application.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before

disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If

recycling, replace cap and return clean container 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 regulation. DO NOT burn

empty containers.

For returnable containers, empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves

and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

Safety Directions:

Harmful if swallowed. Will irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Repeated exposure may cause allergic disorders. Sensitive workers should use protective

clothing. When opening the container, preparing spray and using prepared spray, wear

cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist [or equivalent clothing], a washable hat and

elbow-length PVC gloves. Wash hands after use. After each days use, wash gloves and

contaminated clothing.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide is an emulsifiable concentrate formulation.

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide should be applied after careful field monitoring of pest populations of eggs and

larvae to determine the need for application, the correct timing of the initial application and of any subsequent

applications. For Cotton only, subsequent applications are dependent on economic thresholds, as well as the growth

rate of new unprotected cotton terminals.

For Helicoverpa species, spray applications should be timed to coincide with egg hatching and before larvae are

entrenched in protected feeding sites.

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide has been specifically designed for use in Integrated Pest Management

schemes. The active ingredient, indoxacarb enters larvae primarily by ingestion of treated foliage, or through

penetration of the insect cuticle. After ingesting indoxacarb, the larvae cease feeding and die three to five days later.

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide does not give traditional larval “knockdown” control but controls nominated

larvae species giving superior:

square, flower and boll protection in cotton OR

foliage, flower and pod protection in Chickpea, Faba beans, Mungbeans or Soybeans.

PRODUCT USE

The interaction of equipment and weather-related factors determines the potential for spray drift. The applicator

must consider all these factors when making application decisions and determining off-target drift risks near the

application. A spray drift minimisation strategy, should be employed at all times when applying this product.

APPLYING LARGER DROPLETS (volume median diameter (VMD) 150-250 microns) REDUCES DRIFT POTENTIAL, BUT

WILL NOT MINIMISE DRIFT IF APPLICATIONS ARE MADE IMPROPERLY OR UNDER UNFAVOURABLE ENVIRONMENTAL

CONDITIONS. Larger droplets may reduce the effects of evaporation.

MIXING

Use only clean water. Half fill the spray tank with water and add the appropriate amount of Conquest Stalwart 150

EC Insecticide directly to the spray tank, agitate and add Ovasyn* or amitraz 200 g/L EC, (if applicable), then

completely fill the tank. Mix thoroughly and continue mechanical or hydraulic agitation.

Storage of spray mixture

Use the prepared spray immediately. If unforeseen conditions prevent immediate use of the Conquest Stalwart 150

EC Insecticide spray mix, the mix may be stored up to 72 hours. Before use, thoroughly agitate the spray mix until

fully resuspended. Mixtures of Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide plus Ovasyn* or Amitraz 200 g/L EC should not

be stored.

APPLICATION

Application equipment should be calibrated to apply at least sixty (60) droplets per cm2 of target foliage. Droplet

VMD should be of medium spray quality according to ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles.

Ground application

Apply as a blanket spray or as a banded spray to all crops. Ensure thorough spray coverage on the foliage, using

appropriate fan nozzles. Apply in a minimum spray volume of 100 L/ha and keep the boom low to avoid spray drift. A

minimum spray pressure of 275 kPa (40 psi) should be used with fan nozzles applying insecticides. Higher pressure

reduces droplet size, DOES NOT improve canopy penetration and may increase drift potential. WHEN HIGHER FLOW

RATES ARE NEEDED, USE A HIGHER-CAPACITY NOZZLE INSTEAD OF INCREASING PRESSURE. For band spraying,

increase the number of fan nozzles per crop row as the plant size increases.

Aerial application

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide must only be applied with aircraft fitted with accurately calibrated equipment.

Apply a minimum total spray volume of 30 L/ha with nozzles (e.g. Micronaire* rotary atomisers, CP nozzles or

conventional hydraulic nozzles) set to medium spray quality according to ASAE S572 definition for standard nozzles.

A spray drift minimisation strategy, should be employed at all times when applying this product. DO NOT apply

Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide using Ultra Low Volume (ULV) methods.

COMPATIBILITY:

Label instructions for all products must be observed Conquest Stalwart 150 EC Insecticide is compatible with

Ovasyn* insecticide, Amitraz 200 g/L EC formulations and Conquest Mepiquat 38. Conquest Stalwart 150 EC

Insecticide is not compatible with ultra low volume (ULV) formulations or the following foliar fertilisers: Supa* K 30,

Zip* and Triple 7*. Since formulations may be changed and new ones introduced, it is recommended that users pre-

mix a small quantity of the desired tankmix and observe possible adverse changes (settling out, flocculation etc).

Salt

When the addition of salt is indicated in the Directions for Use table, Conquest recommends the use of salt from the

following sources: Table or cooking salt, Pool salt, or salt approved for use in livestock feed e.g. Cheetham* RAM

(No. 2) Dried Fine Salt, Olsson’s Kiln Dried Course Refined Salt.

Spray Equipment Cleanout

Only apply product using clean, well maintained equipment. Immediately following application, thoroughly clean all

spray equipment to reduce risk of deposits forming that might become difficult to remove. Drain spray equipment

into a disposal pit designed for this purpose. Thoroughly rinse sprayer and flush hoses, boom, and nozzles with clean

water. Fill the sprayer with clean water and household ammonia (one litre of 3 % active for every 100 L of water).

Flush hoses, boom, and nozzles. Turn off boom and top off the tank with clean water. Circulate through the spraying

system for at least 15 minutes. Flush the hoses, boom and nozzles and drain the tank. Remove and clean nozzles,

screens, and strainers in a bucket of fresh ammonia and water. Thoroughly rinse the sprayer, hoses, boom and

nozzles with clean water several times. Clean all other associated contaminated application equipment.
