General

Instructions:

General Instructions

DiPel DF is a specially prepared dry flowable formulation containing live spores and

endotoxin of a naturally occurring bacterium. This dry flowable formulation is mixed with

water before application and can be applied through any standard spray equipment.

DiPel DF controls Lepidopteran larvae (moth and butterfly caterpillars) only. It does not

harm beneficial insect and mite predators, and leaves no harmful crop residues.

DiPel DF does not kill immediately. Once a caterpillar eats treated foliage, it stops feeding.

This protects the crop from further damage. However, the caterpillars may hang from the

leaves before rotting and dropping to the ground, which normally occurs within 3-4 days.

Under low temperatures, when larvae are less actively feeding control may be slower.

Mixing

With the agitator running, add the required quantity of DiPel DF onto the surface of the

water in the partially filled tank. Continue agitation and add remainder of water. Use spray

within 12 hours of mixing. If spraying is interrupted, ensure the spray is thoroughly agitated

before starting to spray. Addition of a spreader-sticker may improve coverage on hard-

to-wet crops. If mixing with cupric hydroxide use immediately. Do not allow the mixture to

stand.

Application

DiPel DF must be ingested by the target insect. Therefore, thorough coverage is essential.

Coverage can be improved by use of dropper nozzles and a fine spray. DO NOT spray past

the point of run-off. Treat when larvae are young. Under heavy pressure, use the higher

recommended rates and shorter interval between applications. If rain falls shortly after

treatment, re-treatment may be necessary. To obtain maximum assistance from beneficial

insects, avoid use of broad spectrum insecticides during a program of DiPel DF sprays.

Note: The effectiveness of this product may be reduced or nullified as a result of pests

developing a tolerance or resistance to this product. If unacceptable control occurs

immediately contact your local Valent BioSciences representative. This product should not

be used where the user suspects that a tolerant or resistant strain is present.

Compatibility

DiPel DF is compatible with most insecticides and fungicides. Do NOT apply as a tank

mix with, or within 2 days of application of alkaline products such as foliar nutrients, liquid

fertilisers or Bordeaux mixtures.

Resistance

Warning:

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING

GROUP 11 INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management, DiPel DF is a Group 11 insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to DiPel DF and other Group 11

insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The

resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if DiPel DF or other

Group 11 insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of DiPel DF on resistant

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

difficult to detect prior to use, Valent BioSciences accepts no liability for any losses that

may result from the failure of DiPel DF to control resistant insects.

DiPel DF may be subject to specific resistant management strategies. For further

information contact your local supplier, Valent BioSciences representative or local

agricultural department agronomist.

Storage and

Disposal:

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL:

Keep out of reach of children.

Store in the closed, original container in a cool (below 15oC) well-ventilated area. Do not

store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. The product is stable for 2 years if stored as

indicated above.

Triple rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not disposed 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 500mm 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 product.

Safety Directions:

Spraying

100 – 1000 g/100L

1. Crops must be monitored regularly for lepidopteran eggs or first instar larvae (caterpillar

stage). The suitability of DiPel DF as a control measure should be determined through

consultation with local industry advisers, company representatives or small scale tests

before treatment of a large area or number of plants begins.

2. If DiPel DF is suitable, time the commencement of spraying to coincide with egg hatch or

first instar larvae and before damage to the plant.

3. The activity of DiPel DF commences to decline immediately after application. Under

continual pest pressure or rapid plant growth (eg sweet corn silks, tomato shoots etc), a

minimum of 2 sprays separated by no more than 3 days initially, and then reapply at 3 –5

day intervals.

4. Use the higher rates of DiPel DF for higher egg laying activity, longer residual or larger

first instar larvae. Higher rates should be used against Helicoverpa spp. Control of

Helicoverpa is most effective if larvae are less than 8 mm long. Control of Spodoptera is

most effective if larvae are less than 15 mm long.

5. Spray late in the afternoon or early evening (before dew begins to settle) when larvae are

actively feeding. Reapplication after rainfall or overhead sprinkler irrigation may be

necessary.

6. Ensure complete and thorough coverage of all plant surfaces. A non-ionic wetting agent

such as Agral may need to be used on difficult to wet plants.

7. Larval control is only achieved when the larvae ingest DiPel DF and activation begins in

the alkaline gut. Feeding ceases once the larvae ingest DiPel DF and death of treated

larvae may take up to 3-5 days. Under low temperatures, when larvae are less actively

feeding, control may be slower.

8. Larvae in sheltered positions such as the centre of the sweet corn whorls or in the heart

leaves of lettuce and crucifers will not be controlled. In these cases spraying to achieve

run-off may be desirable for the DiPel DF to reach the target area to achieve efficacy.

9. DiPel DF is safe to beneficial arthropods and is best used in conjunction with these

beneficial species (eg Trichogramma spp. parasitoids). To obtain maximum assistance

from beneficial arthropods, avoid the use of broad spectrum insecticides before and

during the use of DiPel DF.

10. DiPel DF should be used in an Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy.

DiPel DF can be applied with 0.01% wetting agent to assist in coverage of certain plants (eg crucifers).
