from spray by the plant.

2. Resistance – The effectiveness of this product may be reduced or nullified as a result of pests developing a tolerance or resistance to the

product. If unacceptable control occurs, immediately contact your local company representative. This product should not be used where a

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

For insecticide resistance management CROPRO

D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring

insect biotypes resistant to CROPRO D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE and other group 3A

insecticide may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population.

The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if CROPRO

D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE or other group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The

effectiveness of CROPRO D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE on resistant individuals could

be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to

detect prior to use, PCT Holdings Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that

may result from the failure of CROPRO D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE to control

resistant insects. CROPRO D-SECT EC INSECTICIDE may be subject to specific

resistance management strategies. For further information, contact your local

supplier, PCT Holdings Pty Ltd representatives or local agricultural department

agronomist.

APPLICATION

CROPRO D-SECT is a contact spray. Thorough, even coverage is essential.

Residual control of CROPRO D-SECT may be reduced if heavy rainfall is received

within 48 hours of application.

CROPRO D-SECT can be applied using water as a carrier, and from aircraft can

also be applied ULV when in combination with a compatible ULV insecticide and/or

oil as a bulking agent.

EXPORT OF TREATED PRODUCE

Growers should note that suitable MRLs or import tolerances may not be

established in all markets for produce treated with CROPRO D-SECT Insecticide. If

you are growing produce for export, please check with PCT Holdings Pty. Ltd. for

the latest information on MRLs and import tolerances BEFORE using CROPRO D-

SECT Insecticide.

EQUIPMENT

Ground Spray: Standard low volume boom or high volume equipment may be

used.

Aircraft:

Water: CROPRO D-SECT may be applied by aircraft using water as a carrier.

Water volumes of 20 to 30 L/ha have given satisfactory results.

ULV: CROPRO D-SECT may also be used without dilution in mixture with some

ULV products, as listed under Compatibility, or applied ULV in combination with

D-C-Tron® Cotton Spray Oil. A minimum spray volume of 3.0 L/ha should be

applied ULV, using either a compatible ULV insecticide mixture partner and/or D-

C-Tron Cotton Spray Oil as the bulking agent. DO NOT add water – use direct

from container.

For ULV application, CROPRO D-SECT must only be applied by aircraft fitted with

accurately

calibrated

equipment,

e.g.

Micronair

AU5000

atomisers.

minimise drift it is essential to produce suitable spray droplet diameters by

controlling the rotational speed of the atomisers. A rotational speed of approx.

2700 rpm is recommended to ensure that a desirable droplet diameter (volume

median diameter) of 100 microns is delivered. This is best achieved by setting the

blade angles at 75 degrees and not flying at high speeds. Plane speeds higher

than 110 knots and/or blade angles set lower than 75 degrees will increase the

cage rotational speed and effectively reduce the volume median diameter of the
