Resistance Warning:

RESISTANT INSECT WARNING

For insecticide resistance management Farmoz APHIDEX® 500 Wettable Powder Aphicide

is a Group 1A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to APHIDEX®

500 and other Group 1A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any

insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if

APHIDEX® 500 or other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of

APHIDEX® 500 on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.

Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use ADAMA Australia

Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of APHIDEX®

500 to control insects.

Farmoz APHIDEX® 500 Aphicide may be subject to specific resistance management

strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Adama representative or local

agricultural department argonomist.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT FOR GREEN PEACH APHID CONTROL

Some Green Peach Aphids are resistant to all commonly used insecticides including

APHIDEX® 500. If resistance is known or suspected, do not use APHIDEX® 500 and

seek advice on resistance management. If there is no APHIDEX® 500 resistance, use a

maximum of two (2) non-consecutive aphid sprays per season.

If APHIDEX® 500 was used as the last aphid spray for the season, do not use it as the first

aphid spray next season.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS

DO NOT apply under weather conditions, or from spraying equipment, that may cause

spray or drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops, cropping lands or pastures.

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK

Animals and poultry should be kept away from orchards and other treated areas during the

horticultural spraying season. Keep animals and poultry away from spray and treated areas

for a minimum of 3 days.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT contaminate dams, waterways or drains with this product or used containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

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

sunlight. The product is stable for minimum two (2) years if stored as indicated above.

Dispose of empty carton by crushing and delivering to an approved waste management

facility. If an approved waste management facility is not available bury 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 regulations. DO NOT burn empty carton or product.

Safety Directions:

Product is poisonous if absorbed by skin contact or inhaled or swallowed. Repeated minor

exposure may have cumulative poisoning effect. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do

not inhale dust or spray mist. When opening the container, preparing spray and using the

prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing),

elbow length PVC gloves and face shield or goggles. If product on skin, immediately wash

area with soap and water. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands,

arms and face thoroughly with soap and water. After each day’s use, wash gloves and face

shield or goggles and contaminated clothing.

First Aid Instructions:

If swallowed, splashed on skin or in eyes, or inhaled, contact a poisons information centre

(phone Australia 13 11 26) or a doctor at once. Remove any contaminated clothing and

wash skin thoroughly. If swallowed, activated charcoal may be advised. Give atropine if

instructed.

DO NOT apply more than two (2) sprays in quick

succession where IPM is practiced. Where roses are

grown in dense hedges and IPM is used, spray on the

upper half of the hedge where the aphids are attacking the

buds. Allow the lower half of the hedge to serve as a

refuge for P. persimilis. In such situations APHIDEX

should NOT be mixed with a fungicide which requires very

careful coverage.

Note: Because of the wide range of crops and pests

encompassed under Ornamentals, the phytotoxicity and

MIXING

APHIDEX

500 is a wettable powder formulation packed in water soluble packaging. The water soluble bags

dissolve easily in water. DO NOT excessively handle water soluble bags or expose to moisture. DO NOT touch

bags with wet hands. Return unused bags to primary pack.

For mixing adhere to the following recommendations:

Partially fill the spray tank with water.

Throw in the required number of water soluble bags.

Ensure agitation system is fully engaged. Ensure bag does not enter filter system.

Top up with correct volume of water. Bag should be completely dissolved before spraying commences.

Continue agitation to ensure APHIDEX

500 is in suspension during spraying.

DO NOT store prepared spray solution when spray solutions have been allowed to stand in the spray

tank thoroughly reagitate before using.

APPLICATION

If this product is applied when the temperature is less than 15°C it is essential to have thorough spray coverage

for quick and total aphid control.

Fruit Crops – Tree and Vine Crops

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 water 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 the 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 can then be calculated in the following way:

EXAMPLE ONLY

Dilute spray volume as determined above: For example 1500 L/ha.

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

The concentration factor in this example is: 3x (ie 1500 L ÷ 500 L = 3).

If the dilute label rate is 10 mL/100 L, then the concentrate rate becomes 3 x10, that is 30 mL/100 L of

concentrate spraying.

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.
