INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP

INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide.

Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide and other Group 3A insecticides

may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the

insect population if CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide or other Group 3A Insecticides are used repeatedly. The

effectiveness of CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the

occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, PCT International Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any

losses that may result from the failure of CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide to control resistant insects.

CROPRO BUZZARD Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance strategies. For further information contact your local

supplier, PCT International Pty Ltd representative or local department of agriculture agronomist.

In NSW and Qld, application of this product to

Helicoverpa armigera

larvae longer than 5mm may not only be ineffective

but it may increase the level of synthetic pyrethroid resistance. This product should NOT be used to treat infestations that

were not controlled by an earlier application of it or another synthetic pyrethroid. Infestations not controlled by this product

should be treated with another insecticide from another chemical group. Application of this product with an insecticide from

another chemical group such as Nudrin

will assist with the management of synthetic pyrethroid resistant

Helicoverpa

armigera.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Dangerous to bees. DO NOT spray on any plants in flower while bees are foraging. This product is known to have a

deterrent effect on foraging bees for a short period of time after spraying. Risk to bees is reduced by spraying in the early

morning and late evening when bees are not foraging.

15 September 2000
