GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

RLP

APPROVED

Farmalinx Sucker G Insecticide is a specially coated fertiliser which provides controlled

release of essential nutrients to the seedlings and provides protection against attack

from the species listed in the DFU table. Clothianidin is a systemic insecticide which is

absorbed into the plants via the roots and is translocated through the seedling as it

grows.

Resistance Warning:

For insecticide resistance management Farmalinx SUCKER G Insecticide is a Group 4A

insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to SUCKER G and other

Group 4A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population.

The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if SUCKER G

or other Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of SUCKER G

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

individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Farmalinx Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any

losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant insects. SUCKER

G may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information

contact your local supplier, Farmalinx Pty Ltd representative or local agricultural department

agronomist.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Dangerous to bees and will kill bees foraging in the crop to be treated.

Risks to non-target insects – Clothianidin may have adverse effects on some non-target

beneficials, in particular where IPM is practiced, to foliage dwelling predators.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

This product is highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers

or waterways with the chemical or used containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

For containers:

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

sunlight.

Triple rinse containers before disposal. Dispose of rinsate or any undiluted chemical

according to state/territory legislative requirements. 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 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 regulations. DO NOT burn

empty containers or product.

For refillable containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves

and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

For 25 kg bags:

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

sunlight.

Single-rinse or shake remainder into applicator. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on

site. 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 regulations. Do not burn empty containers or product.

Safety Directions:

Poisonous if swallowed. Wash hands after use.

First Aid Instructions:

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia Tel.

20 g/seedling

Apply at planting using an enclosed planting applicator

into a planting tube or at or after planting by subsoil

placement.

Planting tube: Place 20 g of Sucker G at the bottom of

the planting tube using an enclosed planting applicator,

then add the seedling, insert the planting tube in the

ground and open to release the contents.

Subsoil placement: Using a long handled spade make a

cut 2 cm from the root ball 10 cm deep. Apply 20 g of

product using an enclosed planting applicator then close

the cut.

DO NOT apply SUCKER G directly to the root ball area

as this may affect plant growth.

The speed of control from this application depends on

how fast the product is taken up by the seedling, which

needs to be actively growing. This will be assisted by

post-planting rainfall or watering of at least 10 mm. It is

recommended that application is before or during the

main annual rainfall period.

If severe attack takes place prior to the chemical

becoming effective in the plant, a knockdown

insecticide may be required to give short term

protection.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE OR IN ANY MANNER CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL

UNLESS AUTHORISED UNDER APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION.
