Resistance Warning:

GROUP 22A INSECTICIDE

For insecticide resistance management EuroChem LEPTA is a Group 22A insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to EuroChem LEPTA 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 EuroChem LEPTA or

other Group 22A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of EuroChem LEPTA

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

individuals is difficult to detect prior to use TGAC Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for

any losses that may result from the failure of EuroChem LEPTA to control resistant insects.

EuroChem LEPTA may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. To

help prevent the development of resistance to EuroChem LEPTA, use EuroChem LEPTA

in accordance with the current Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) strategy for

your region. For further information contact your local supplier TGAC Australia Pty Ltd

representative or local department agronomist.

Precautions:

PRECAUTIONS – 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 bee hive. 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 if possible. Observe the buffer zones for aerial and ground

application. If unexpected conditions cause spray drift to contaminate land that livestock

could potentially graze seek advice from TGAC Australia Pty Ltd.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

EXPORT OF TREATED PRODUCE

Import tolerances for produce treated with Incarnate 300WG Insecticide may be pending in

some countries. Consult with your exporter or TGAC AUSTRALIA representative before

applying Incarnate 300WG Insecticide to export crops.

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

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 near-by non-target plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.

Storage and

Disposal:

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area out of direct

sunlight. Store in a locked room or place away from children, animals, food, feedstuffs,

seed and fertilizers. Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add

rinsings to spray tank. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Puncture and bury

empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers

below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of

waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not

be burnt.

Safety Directions:

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

product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. When opening

the container and preparing spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrists,

a washable hat, elbow-length PVC gloves and a face shield or goggles. When using the

prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrists, a washable hat and

elbow-length PVC gloves. After each day’s use wash gloves, face shield or goggles and

contaminated clothing.

First Aid Warnings:

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

EuroChem LEPTA 300WG Insecticide has been specifically designed for use in Integrated

Pest Management (IPM) schemes. EuroChem LEPTA

s an oxadiazine insecticide in the form

of a water dispersible granule. EuroChem LEPTA

is particularly active on Lepidopteran insect

pests, primarily as a larvicide. Before application monitor insect populations to determine

whether or not there is a need for application of EuroChem LEPTA

based on locally

determined economic thresholds. More than one treatment of EuroChem LEPTA

may be

required to control a population of pests.

Mixing

Always add dry EuroChem LEPTA to water in tank. DO NOT premix or slurry. With the

exception of products in water soluble bags, EuroChem LEPTA must be in suspension in the

tank before adding companion products or surfactant.

Fill spray tank to ¼ to ½ full of water. Measure the amount of EuroChem LEPTA insecticide

required for the area to be sprayed. Add EuroChem LEPTA insecticide directly to the spray

tank with the agitation engaged. Mix thoroughly to disperse the insecticide. Once dispersed,

the material must be kept in suspension at all times by continuous agitation. Use

mechanical or hydraulic means, DO NOT use air agitation, premix or slurry.

If spray solution is left standing, ensure thorough reagitation of the spray mix until fully

resuspended. DO NOT allow spray mix to sit overnight, as resuspension may be difficult.

Surfactant/Wetting agent

Apricots, Apples, Capsicum, Eggplant, Grapes, Leafy vegetables, Nashi pears,

Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Peppers, Plum, Tomatoes: use a non-ionic

surfactant/wetting agent at 15 g active/100 L, (e.g. Agral

600 @ 25 mL/100 L or Citowett

@15 mL/100 L).

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower: use a non-ionic surfactant/wetting

agent at 75 g active/100 L, (e.g. Agral 600 @ 125 mL/100 L or Citowett @ 75 mL/100 L).

DO NOT add a non-ionic surfactant/wetting agent if:

mixing with another product which already contains a surfactant and/or the product label

advises not to add a surfactant.

mixing with a liquid fertiliser

DO NOT use BS1000 or Activator-90 as it may cause crop phytotoxicity.

APPLICATION

Minimising Spray Drift

The interaction of many equipment and weather-related factors determines the potential for

spray

drift.

applicator

must

consider

these

factors

when

making

application

decisions.

The most effective way to reduce drift potential is to apply large droplets (volume mean

diameter (VMD) > 150 - 200 microns). The best drift management strategy is to apply the

largest

droplets

that

provide

sufficient

coverage

control.

APPLICATIONS

MADE

UNDER

UNFAVOURABLE

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. When making applications in hot and dry conditions, set

up equipment to produce larger droplets to reduce effects of evaporation.

Dilute spraying

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 run-off.

The required 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 crop grows.

Concentrate spraying

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 then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY

Dilute spray as determined above: For example 1,500 L /ha

Your chosen concentrate spray volume: For example 500 L/ha

The concentration factor in this example is 3X (i.e 1,500 L ÷ 500 L = 3)

If the dilute label rate is 25 g/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x 25 , that is

75 g/100 L of concentrate spray.

The chosen spray volume, amount of product per 100 L of water, and 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.

Ground application

Use a boom sprayer fitted with high flow rate nozzles to apply the highest practical spray

volume. Nozzles with higher rated flows produce larger droplets. Use the lower spray

pressures recommended for the nozzle. 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. Use a nozzle type that is designed for the intended application.

With most nozzle types, narrower spray angles produce larger droplets. Consider using

low-drift nozzles. When applying EuroChem LEPTA by ground application, keep the boom

low to avoid spray drift. For orchard/vineyard sprayers avoid directing spray above trees

and always turn-off outward pointing nozzles at row ends and outer rows.

Compatibility

Since formulations may be changed and new ones introduced, it is recommended that

users premix a small quantity of the desired tank mix and observe possible adverse

changes (settling out, flocculation etc). Avoid complex tank mixtures of several products or

very concentrated spray mixtures. EuroChem LEPTA is compatible with Captan

, Delan

Manzate®, Omite

, Polyram

, Systhane

and Domiclo.

The mixing sequence recommended is: water soluble bags, dry flowable or water

dispersible granules (EuroChem LEPTA), wettable powders, water based suspension

concentrates, water soluble concentrates, oil based suspension concentrates, emulsifiable

concentrates, adjuvants and surfactants, soluble fertilisers.

Spray Equipment Cleanout

Prior to application, start with clean, well maintained application equipment. Immediately

following application, thoroughly clean all spray equipment to reduce risk of forming

hardened deposits that might become difficult to remove. Drain spray equipment.

Thoroughly rinse sprayer and flush hoses, boom, and nozzles with clean water. Loosen and

physically remove all visible deposits. Clean all other associated application equipment.
